The AA’s old gold

Last week I was sent my annual renewal notice for the AA, which operates principally a motoring breakdown service and is now part of the same venture capital group as Saga, purveyors of travel and insurance services specifically aimed at the over-50 age group.  As a member of some years’ standing, the notice told me, I’m now classed as a ‘gold member’. In the leaflet explaining this, the ‘G’ of gold is represented by a squiggle so that the remaining letters appear to say something about ‘old membership’.  Is this a deliberate joke or a corporate Freudian slip I wonder?

    The notion of a “corporate Freudian slip’ is an interesting one, and deserves further investigation? Perhaps a research grunt could be obtained?

    Yippee!! I am now classed as a “SOLD” member! After reading all the material sent I come to the conclusion its all a load of sphericals
