No Junk Mail Please

Dear people who deliver junk mail in my street

In case you haven’t noticed there is a polite little sign attached to my letterbox that reads “No Junk Mail Please”. This includes all of you – the pizza vouchers, the free newspapers filled with ads, the autobarn catalogues, the monthly real estate guide, the annoying catalogues in plastic bags filled with mystifying household appliances, and anything from politicians.
I would appreciate it if you would stop stuffing your pamphlets into my letterbox because all I do is either:
1. pick them out and throw them in the bin
2. let them sit in there until they rot away which doesn’t make for a pleasant letter gathering activity when there is actual mail in there

Yours sincerely

  1. Can sooooooooooo relate to this!
    I have to clear three letterboxes at work, all with the same No Junk Mail sign. The ones I hate not only put 2 or 3 of the same leaflet into each letterbox, they then take a handful and toss them on to the floor just inside the front door.

    Seriously, isn’t there some law about this?

    there doesn’t seem to be! I have lived here for four years with the sign and it’s only in the last year they’ve started ignoring it 🙁

    I have no life, so I like junk mail. We had a smidgen of rain and one letter, seemingly securely encased in a sealed plastic wrapper, filled up with water. It is a voucher so I am drying it.
    There is a debate here art them moment about whether electioneering material is junk or not!!! No contest!!

    The only one I look for is the target catalogue. I’m sure I probably miss a lot of bargains…but maybe I’m also saving money?
