Junk Mail

I stopped by my daughter’s house the other day and while I was waiting for her to get home from work, I checked the mail for her.  Her mailbox was full and it looked like she hadn’t bothered to gather it for days. I was annoyed because she always seems to do that. Whenever I ask her about it, she tells me that she rarely gets anything of importance in the mail anyway.  She says that all of her bills come via email and anything else she needs she just looks for it online. I have to admit that even my own mail is mostly junk mail too. This time, I looked through the ads that came in her mail and found several for HVAC servicing.  Now, I don’t think that this in a very effective way to advertise this day in age. People my daughter’s age simply throw away junk mail without ever reading it. Since they are the ones buying new homes, you would think those companies would find a more modern way to attract them as customers.  With just a few clicks of the mouse you can find just about any company, service, or product, so it would make sense to save the money on mailing out flyers. Sending out information in the mail is expensive and not very environmentally responsible either. This is another factor that is very important to people today.  I still say that she should check her mail more often and at least see if there is something important in there. I guess my old fashion way of thinking doesn’t seem to compute with her.
