paper

It's getting worse, not better.

As we move farther into the digital age where almost anything and everything can be done on line I get more and more and more junk mail in my mailbox.

I'm talking about the tree eating paper form of Spam people.

Sure it may not be asking me if I feel the need to increase the size of my penis but how many ads per week to I need for a new laptop, cheap pizza and photos of my kid. How many credit cards do we really need because I swear to you the week is not complete if we do not get a minimum of 3 credit card applications. Usually it's more like 50.

Then there are the cable ads. From our own cable company. The telephone ads. The telephone service adds. Internet access too.

I am sick of spending my valuable time being pandered to. I am sick of the shredding and mountains of waste. I spent over an hour yesterday shredding junk mail. Wasted time. Wasted paper. Wasted irritated Cami.

Those are my 2 cents for today. Want an even angry 2 cents? Go say hello to my dad. He's angry today too, and rightfully so.

I hear you! ARGH....I have heard that it is fun to stuff other junk mail into other companies prepaid envelopes and send crap back to them. I may some day have alittle fun with that.

It's good to vent.
I hate spam.
Whoever does it should be made to eat 100 tins of the tinned Spiced Ham type of spam everyday for a month, then maybe they will stop, foul beings.

we recently took our names of the pre-authorized credit cards list so they can't send us those any more. Our volume of mail has gone down by 75% or more!

I keep getting Breast Augmentation material. Now I ask you - do these **points** need augmenting? NAY! Deflated, maybe, augmented - not so.

For the sake of the environment, I really think individual households should be able to ban the delivery of junk mail. How can we get the USPO on board?

The company I work for sends ME at least 3 or 4 junk emails a week offereing me things I get FOR FREE as an employee. How insane is that????

I'm with OTJ! BAN IT! It's such a waste.

I hate the ads for a cleaning service. Every Thursday in the mail. I think they are judging me.

I use to mail the pre-paid credit card envelopes back with a note that said No thank you.

i get just as much crap in my mailbox- even though i get half my bills online now... but what annoys me even more is the phone spam! i get three to four phone calls a day offering me insurance and credit cards and accounts at boutiques!
