Annoyances #3

Junk Mail. What a complete environmental nightmare! I can fill up my kitchen trash can with junk mail in a little less than a week.

Logging companies cut down trees and tranport the logs to a mill where it is turned into paper. Companies with a product they want to use to cheat me out of money hire marketing and advertising guys to come up with a sure fire way to part me from my cash. A printer is hired who applies toxic chemicals and inks to the paper then the postal service is hired to burn up some fuel to get this thing to my house. I go to the mailbox, pick up all these papers, bring them in the house and put them in the trash can to be hauled away and buried in a landfill.

What a complete waste of time and resources. I would rather if they had just left the tree there.

I know... I never read 99% of that stuff. We have "do not put junk mail in this mailbox or we will kill you" stickers over here. Well, the stickers are friendlier than that, but mean the same. They work very well.

My annoyance are the people keeping them in business! If everyone would trash the junk mail then there would be no junk mail. Think about it, they must be making money or they wouldn't do it.

There you go!!! Starve them of their financial resources. Cut it off at the source.
