Ok some of you may remember this post where I declared my love for return address labels. I believe some of you even agreed and expressed that you had the same affinity for these “gifts” which so often come in the mail after you have donated to a charity or organization.
Well I’m not sure if one of you thought it would be funny to pull a joke on me and send my contact information to every. single. charity. in. the. entire. world, but somehow they all have our address and will NOT stop sending us address labels. I am not kidding, people, we have probably received a new batch of return address labels every other week or so for the past couple of months. And for some reason, the majority of them have a patriotic theme? So in case we need to do a mass mail-out for Memorial Day or the 4th of July, we should be all set.
I really have no idea how all of these people got our information, but we are hearing from groups supporting everything from cancer research to the Olympics. And hello, Olympics? I’m sorry, but I have a feeling you are coming up with funding just fine on your own, thank you, and I see no need to send you money. Nonetheless, I will still keep the free address labels. Even if they are the 5th set that we have received that happens to be covered in American flags.
Anyway, don’t get me wrong, I still love the labels. But considering Brian and I aren’t planning on still living in this house in oh, say, 800 years, I don’t think we are going to be needing this many. Thanks anyway, National Center for (Fill-in-the-blank) Research, but I think we’ll pass on any future mail-outs.
Does that count as an official opt-out request?
