What’s The Big Deal About “Fifty Shades Of Grey”

By Paul Bieber

So, I’m told, it’s a book with a lot of very, uhm, interesting, scenes. It is a little more mature than “Jack and Jill went up the hill”, but not quite as naughty as just about anything on the web.

I’ve got to tell you, we had this idea first. Yes, us in the glass industry. First it was grey, or gray, (your choice), and then Solar Cool Grey, then Eclipse Grey, then low-e on grey, and dark grey, and Greylite 14; well you get the drift. I went to each glass floater’s catalog and counted MORE than fifty shades of grey.

So, who is better? Some author guy who writes a book or we who really work with all these shades of grey.

You said it, we are. The glass industry leads the way again, and someone else is capitalizing on us. Actually, that is not too surprising after all. The book is about a gentleman who is masochistic. Every one not in bankruptcy in the glass industry is the same! We are beating our heads agains the wall, inflicting self-pain, and this guy gets all the attention.

We need to stand up for what’s right. We had the 50 shades first, we have felt more pain, and, oh, the young lady in the book used to work in our industry. But, she wanted to experience a better life and she ended up in this book.
