Do they cover this in business school?

In the interest of full disclosure, I made $26 from this blog last year. So, what I'm about to say might qualify as biting the hand that doesn't feed me.

However.

This ad ran on my blog a few days ago.
This is for a necessary product that many woman use. OK, fine.

But this marketing tactic?

I'm not an expert on business travel, but I do travel maybe four times a year on behalf of Corporate Behemoth. Sometimes, this travel is so that I can give a big stinkin' presentation. Sometimes it's stressful.

But never, ever in my life have I thought, "I just got off a plane and only have a few minutes before my big presentation! I've got to towel off my hoo-ha!"

Maybe that's why I'm only a middle manager.

That is an ... interesting ad, for sure. I just have to wonder what you blogged about that pulled up that one? ;)

Just....wow. I know they market a lot of unnecessary products in the name of hygiene, but really? Moist towelettes specially designed for the lady bits? I'll expect a line of scented nipple wipes next!

When I saw the ad I thought it was a "clean up" effort after joining the mile high club? Just sayin.......

oh dear lord! what is happening with someone's hoo-ha that it would need to be tended to before a big presentation. i don't think that product is going to do the trick - i think they should see a physician!
