Scene 1: 3 years back, in the first few weeks of my life in frozen land:
me: I never get any mail !!
hubby: what !! whenever I see you, you are always replying to emails, chats, scraps !!
me: not emails !! I meant paper mail, letters, parcels. The outside world doesnt know I exist in this address.
hubby: ask your parents, cousins, aunts & uncles to send you letters instead of emails
me: huh !! that will be too many letters to reply back to. What a wastage of postage & paper !!
Somewhere in my head, something made me do this: Sign up to receive Chadwicks brochure.
And every time one arrived, I would proudly read my name and exclaim "ah !! see they know I live here".
Scene 2: present day
Opened the mailbox to find :
- coupons- from hair cutting to grass cutting
- roof repair
- drainage cleaning
- kohls - (hee hee)
- restaurants -(useful !!)
- spa coupons- (mmm...)
- maid services
- tyre repair - (practical to keep this)
- credit cards
- loan offers
- insurance companies
- mortgage companies
- septic tank installation & cleaning - (????)
- window cleaning
- A/C repair
& some more...
me: how the hell do they get our address ? how do they know we live here ? If only I could install a shredder right in our mailbox !! Sigh...
hubby: Now sit and enjoy reading your name !! hahaa...
