Right, ranting time I’m afraid………….Junk mail!
Grrrrr! seriously can’t stand the stuff and it’s beginning to fill up house!
There is a big sign on my door, not this one of course, but my door was too grubby to take a picture of!
In fact the sign on my door is even bigger and obvious than this one! But still people will insist on putting advertising crap through the letterbox!
We don’t use the local kebab house – I’m a veggie and Badger is on a GF diet so there is nothing on the menu we want!
I can cut my own grass and do my own gardening so stop offering to do it for me!
If I want to sell the house, I know where to find an estate agent to do it for me! So stop putting your crap through my letterbox!
Now I’m not adverse to someone trying to make money and run a small business, good on you for it, but think about it……… If you insist on forcing this into my house, when I have quite clearly asked you not to, am I more likely or less likely to use your service ? Am I going to recommend you to a friend?
“Oh yes use this estate agent, they are unable to follow a simple instruction over junk mail, so no problem handing over your home and financial future to them!”
You are doing your business no good at all!
Today I had the local “community magazine” come through the door. Please people, call it what it is! It has nothing to do with community, it is just a means to make a quick buck by selling advertising space! And my letterbox says no thank you!
I called the office, a little ticked off I will be honest, but to try and explain to them that I don’t want it, I won’t read it, it’s wasteful of paper and time, and to stop delivering it to my house!
The response from the lady on the phone? “For gods sake just throw it away then! No cares if you read it of not!”
Really no ones cares? What about the poor people who paid for advertising? They probably want me to read it. I imagine it was sold to them on the basis of house many households it reaches? Well you miss sold that then – cos you can count my household out of it!
How wasteful on paper is it? 25 pages of glossy full colour – just throw it away, no one cares, it’s only more trees, more chemicals more waste! Now don’t get me wrong, I’m no eco warrior hand-knitting my own socks from recycled cardboard, or growing hemp in the garden to weave into a new ozone layer, but I do the best that I can to avoid the needless damage to our world! And this hateful use of precious resources pees me off if I’m honest!
So please people, read the sign……. NO JUNK MAIL!
Oh and just so you know? That goes for all you political types too! So help me, if one more smug smiling face plastered across the front page of your party rag comes in through my door, I may lose my shit big time!
