So, since I moved to Finland, I found out that gastronomy isn’t exactly the Finns’ forte. But there’s a brand of cheeses available in Finnish supermarkets that offers a really spectacular selection - and I’m a bit of a cheese connoisseur.
So on my lunch break at work, I found out which company owned the brand, and shot them an email to congratulate them. You know, just a one-liner to tell them their products are good and please keep up the good work, nothing more.
I just got a phone call from their head office abroad. The conversation with the lady went something like this:
– Hey, thanks for your kind email. We’re really glad you love our cheeses! How much do you weigh?
– Uh? 165 lbs. Why?
– Well, you just won yourself your weight in cheese. We’ll send you the voucher.
Lol That was unexpected - and really kinda cool.
