When you get bills in the mail, you often receive an envelope full of advertisements for unrelated things. Now, I expect my credit card company to include an offer to pay sixteen dollars for thirty-five state quarters, because I don't doubt that a credit card company would drain my blood and sell my corpse down the river given half a chance and a few dollars. But today even my cable bill came with an offer for novelty checks, fish oil pills and a life insurance policy.
FISH OIL PILL SALES GUY: Uh, hey, Adelphia, as long as you're sending that, can you toss this in there too?
No fair. Why should they be allowed to make extra money smuggling random junk mail inside real mail?
It would be great to send advertisements to them along with my payment. In fact, I could just send back the ones they sent me. Unfortunately I've already sealed all my envelopes. But next month, I'm totally doing it.
