BLIND TO GO

The U.S. Postal Service sent me a relocation packet that includes a $25 coupon (off any purchase of $500 or more) from my local Blinds To Go outlet.

Surely this is one the stupidest business names ever registered. It was apparently needed to differentiate the chain from those catering to buyers who wanted to keep their window dressings on site rather than take them home for installation.

Or it could just be something like an overcrowded school for the blinds...or a charter school for blind people.

Or a hard-to-parse political statement about the small African nation bordered by Ghana, Benin and Burkina Faso.

Ooooh...good one.

It could also refer to blinds for cars. I've seen that.
