I was driving next to a truck on the infamous 405 freeway. The company installs audio and visual components and proudly displayed its name in various places on the truck: SIMPLISTIC SOLUTIONS. I was in no danger of driving off the freeway since my maximum speed at the time ranged from 5-10 mph. But I did swallow my gum.
Being the crank that I am, I sent the company an e-mail:
To Simplistic Solutions:
I saw one of your trucks on the 405 and almost croaked. It appears you do not realize that “simplistic” and “simple” are not synonyms. You know what “simple” means; “simplistic” means overly simple, too simple—it is most definitely a NEGATIVE. I am certain that is not the idea you want potential customers to have about your company.
