“If I don’t get at least one email every ten minutes, I feel unloved. Even junk mail makes me feel seen. Sad, I know. Sigh.” ~Chris Abani
As I’m going through the monthly junkmail, I think about those days that getting mail in the mailbox was actually exciting! The thrill began as a child… when mom would discard the Sweepstakes stamps and I would pull them out of the garbage and stick them on envelopes and pretend they were stamps to deliver letters or invitations to my ‘friends’ (stuffed animals or dolls), whomever I was bringing to my imagination tea party.
Then it graduated to my own Sweepstakes opportunity, and oh, how I enjoyed picking out all the miscellaneous household items, and magazines! ❤
AND NOW (presently), I tear them in half not the slightest bit interested in the new and improved kitchen items or the new edition of a popular magazine. AND I receive WAY TOO MUCH OTHER FLYERS and MISCELLANEOUS JUNK DEBRI that I spend hours every month going through.
Have you noticed that they put advertisements in with your bills now? Like bills aren’t distasteful enough, they have to stuff junk mail in there with them. I get back at them. I put garbage in with my check when I mail it in. Coffee grinds, banana peels…I write, “Could you throw this away for me?” ~Andy Rooney
If you’re an individual, who (LIKE ME), does not enjoy receiving junkmail, send to the following, he’ll be delighted to have it:
For anyone who’s had enough, take a look at DMAchoice. Our friends at the DMA have a great service that provides flexibility about the types of mail you get.
Or, you can box it up and send it to me. Seriously.
