  • surprise!

    How is this advertisement supposed to draw customers?

    Are ebay sellers spiderman fans?

    We don’t pick up packages and deliver them in minutes with a phone call. So, why promote this service?

    I think it would be better to improve the service issues with priority mail and show what we are doing for the customer.

    The only reason I can see for this advertisement is so that some big shot can feel really important.
