Sprint Loves You, Kinda Creeps You Out

Jerry doesn’t really have a problem with Sprint, his mobile phone carrier. But what the carrier’s site told him when he looked up the status of his contract has him holding back a bit. “We love you,” it proclaims, offering a discount on a new phone. Sprint loves him?

He writes:

Recently I started considering a move from Sprint to Verizon. I need an iPhone for some work I am doing (and yes I specifically need an iPhone for this). I went out to my Sprint page to check my contract. The good news is my contract is up. The questionable news is that Sprint really crosses the creepy line (see attached image).

Creepy, or just an odd failure in copy writing and corporate rapport establishment?
