Cosmaline pulls an IKEA for Labor Day

Remember that IKEA Bahrain "same but in Arabic" thingy (here)? Well, we just had ours with Cosmaline. In French they say "faute avouee a moitie pardonnee" (a confessed thin is half-forgiven), but this one is funny. On the official insta account of Cosmaline (here), you have the full exchange between Aida and Vanessa (the graphic designer) whereby Aida asks for a Labor Day message, but only after Vanessa had sent a missive that she was off for Labor Day. Aida cops to her mistake if you want to know. All in jest, all funny and damn it much better than anything Vanessa could have come up with!
