Wait. Hamilton Beach doesn’t BELIEVE me???

Name  Withheld (New person. Presumably “Betty’s” friend so we’ll call her “Veronica.”)

Well, I have to give “Veronica” credit for spelling my name correctly. (Nobody ever does that the first time out of the gate.) Still, I am very displeased with this ugly burden of proof thing she’s introduced to our little equation.

Do you not BELIEVE me, Veronica???

You got me. I scam big corporations out of $25 kitchen appliances. 

Now, I ask you, “Veronica” … if I were going to lie about something not working properly in my home, don’t you think I’d shoot higher up the Hamilton Beach food chain? Don’t you think I’d have the smarts to go for a juicer … or a Big Mouth® Deluxe 14 Cup Food Processor with French Fry Blade?

Frankly, I’m a little insulted.

And I feel another letter coming on …
