Pessimistic Fortune Cookies
A coworker of mine recently got a fortune in her cookie that said, "Sometimes cookies have no fortunes." We thought this was kind of sad and now I wonder if it was a cookie from Wonton Food in Queens. The company hired writers to draft pessimistic fortunes.
Some of the messages include:
*Perhaps you've been focusing too much on yourself.
*Your luck is just not there. Attend to practical matters today.
*Today is a disastrous day. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em
*It’s over your head now. Time to get some professional help.
*There may be a crisis looming, be ready for it.
I wonder if the reverse side had lotto numbers to avoid.
People have complained to Wonton Food about two of the fortunes. Are they taking the fortunes too seriously or should fortune cookies always have a positive message inside? What do you think?
