Thanks, But I Only Need One Shower Radio


Sure I have another shower but that's none of your business. Do you hear me Amazon.com? Stay out of the layout of my home and my waterproof electronics.

A month or so I used the retail giant to buy a new shower radio so I can listen to something other then static when I'm ruba dub dubbing. Now I get an email a month later with "suggestions" on new shower radios. But I just bought one! Are you saying I need one for my son's bathroom? He's not even talking yet, I think he can do without traffic and weather on the 1's. Or are you insinuating that the products you sell are of inferior quality and I will need to replace my current model in the coming days? I sure hope not because I read every review out there (and even wrote one of my own).

So then what is it?

Don't get me wrong, from a marketing perspective, emails with "suggestions" on purchases RELATED to recent years buys are a great idea. Like if I bought a pair of sneakers, you could recommend a 12 pack of white tube socks or maybe some cutting-edge shoelaces. But don't suggest I buy the same exact item a month later.
If this were a one time incident, I might have looked the other way. But you send me these all the time! Last week you suggested I buy more socks. Well I only have 2 pairs of the Royal Vibrams so I only need a few pair of 5-toed socks and I know have that covered. Can we move on to something else?

Do you do this to all your customers or us it just me? Are they upset or do they feel that you can never have enough micro usb cables? OK bad example because we all know that you can never have enough.
If you keep this up, I'm going to have some "suggestions" for you. They start with "no", "stop", and you might like, "waterproof F-off! "
