In this day and age

Who’d have thunk it. Whilst doing some research for a side project, I browsed to a company’s website. What did I find? Five lines of text. Company name, address, city, state, zip code, phone number and fax number. That’s it… nothing else. No information about the company, no pictures, no links… nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Zero. However, in their defense, they did “tart it up” by making the phone number and fax number bold.

Now don’t get me wrong… I’ve encountered plenty of companies that have no website at all. That’s not that unusual even though I can’t quite wrap my head around why any business wouldn’t have a website these days. After all, that’s pretty much how businesses are found these days and it’s a prime opportunity to make a good impression on potential customers.

But this? I mean WTF??? If I lived near there, I’d probably want to stomp into their office and thump on somebody’s desk and rant at them for allowing this foolishness. And if I could hunt down whoever put that web page up (I won’t distinguish that person with the title of webmaster), Someone would have to restrain me from using my Official Technical Writer’s 2 x 4® to persuade them of the error of their ways. And yet, I’m too much of a sweetie to publicly shame them by posting a link to their “site”.

<sigh>Like my ex-mother-in-law says, it’s a great life if you don’t weaken.
