Broken: Capital One state map

Paul writes:

Capital One mailed me a personlized loan offer for my small business in New Hampshire. They even took the time to draw a little silhouette of my state to show how much they care about New Hampshire! Unfortunately, they didn't bother to proofread -- the state shown is Vermont, the next state over!


Are we sure it's not a silouhette of Idaho turned upside-down?

A subtle hint about where they prefer you do do business?

Well, we all know New Hampshire is just riding on Vermont's coattails, right?

I work for the company that created that package. It was probably a data mismatch error. Unfortunately, since that piece is probably one of several million mailed out at the same time, an error or two may get through undetected. I did let our data processing manager know about it though.

it was probably a "people don't know their geography" error.

wtf is a "data processing manager"?

corporations. tsk.

So Michael, I should have said, "they didn't bother to proofread all of the several million they sent out" ;)
