An actual thing I just did

Subtitle: What has my life become?

Email to: Us Magazine 
From: Felicia 
This is one of the more bizarre missives I will ever write -- but I've noticed the following too many times for it to be coincidence! It seems that in many midtown Manhattan Duane Reade stores, Us Magazine is obstructed and difficult to find! I'm not sure if a competitor is sabotaging you or if there is some beef with Duane Reade, but any time I find Us (if at all) it is hidden behind another unrelated magazine in the display. Life & Style, Star (in my opinion, both lesser magazines!) are always loud and clear, front and center, whereas yours is hidden and out of reach. Anyway, call it paranoia or whatever, but it's happened around ten times, at more than one Duane Reade location. As a fan of Us, I thought I'd let you know, in case there's anything to it. 
Sincerely, 
Felicia
And now you, dear reader, know my secret(s). Not only do I read Us Magazine regularly, but I have enlisted myself to protect it from nefarious tabloid sabotage.

Is there a support group I can join?

***10:00PM UPDATE***

DUDES! "Us" just wrote me back!

"Thanks Felicia, we're having this checked out now.

Sent from my iPhone"

I DON'T KNOW WHY BUT I FEEL REALLY SPECIAL.

Basically, I have found my calling -- as a magazine vigilante for justice.

  5. They sent the reply from their iPhone? That makes me laugh that "Us" is walking around getting their emails on an iPhone ha! (...that their employees are, not the magazine itself. That's another funny image entirely)

    I think it's cool that they are "checking into it". Are they going to call all the Duane Reade's in the Midtown Manhattan area and ask them if all their "Us Weekly" magazines are on display? It could sound like the start of a prank call. "...is your refrigerator running?"
