Happy Singlesí Day!

I just received an email from Sunrise- Celebrate Singlesí Day with us!

Did you guys know that such a day existed? I wish all the single lonely people of the forum a happy Singlesí Day. Hope you are all having a smashing day with yourself

Interesting question, never asked about civil status when making a phone contract. What else they have in their customer database?

Re: Happy Singlesí Day!

This 'singles day' is one of the biggest Chinese shopping holidays, but the fact that now western countries are adopting this is indeed new. I think it's been around only for a couple of years in Europe..

Re: Happy Singlesí Day!

Be careful what you search for, too...

I did an image search the other day for "funny butt plugs" and now Google thinks I have a genuine interest in butt plugs.

It was random. Probably bombarding everyone! How would Sunrise know about all the old ladies I hang with

That's intriguing..Is there a Valentine's Day in China?

Under certain circumstances, being single could well be something to celebrate.

I guess that they don't have Sunrise cells?

You should call them today.."Hey, happy singles day. Do you want to change that?"

You don't want to know what "goats" mean in my mother tongue.
