Bad sales pitch

From an email I received earlier today:

Attorney Benjamin Riley :

Last week you received an e-mail offering our BodyBilt ergonomic office
chairs. As a lawyer, you spend long hours working at your desk for your clients.
The more time at your desk, the more money you bill and the more money you make.

Can I show you how our ergonomic chairs can help you
increase your productivity and billable hours? You will be surprised to
learn how much a chair can help your comfort level during and after
those long hours at the office.

Gee, Peggy, that's quite a sales pitch. But you might want to reconsider just how appealing that image of me sitting in a chair all day, slaving away, greedily trying to generate billable hours to make more money really is, and whether it's going to make me want to buy your product. For some crazy reason, I'm unenthused about the prospect of becoming a mindless fee-generating automaton slowly atrophying in my comfortable ErgoGenesis-brand shackles, er, chair.

I wonder if Peggy has a special chair so she can spend long hours at her desk bugging people with proper jobs about her stupid contraption.
