Is it a caring or insensitive gesture to send an unemployment sympathy card?
"It's hard to know what to say at a sensitive time like this. How about, 'I'm buying!'" says one card illustrated with a cartoon line-up outside an unemployment office.
Another says: "Don't think of it as losing your job. Think of it as a time-out between stupid bosses." And a third: "One day, you'll look back on all this with the wisdom that distance bestows, and you'll say: Wow, that sucked."
"We know these job-loss captions are not going to be the strongest (sales) performers, but they are meant to meet a relevant and niche consumer need for many who are looking for it," a Hallmark spokesman told AFP by email on Monday.
Hallmark markets its cards through retailers and online, with its loss-of-job products falling under the "encouragement" category
