The morning's mail fell with a crash on the vestibule floor and scattered across it. There was a lot of it. This is what it comprised:
1. A brochure for solar panels. (We already have solar power and have no need for any more.
2. Another brochure for curtains, shutters and blinds - 'order today, delivery by Christmas.' (Don't need any)
3. A thick book of cheap outdoor clothing.(Not the sort of thing we wear and we have never bought from the company).
4. A world wide travel brochure. (I can no longer get travel insurance.)
5. Two charity Christmas appeals.( I don't believe in spreading my charity thinly. I already donate to children in Syria and RSPB Bird Reserves monthly. At Christmas a special donation to Cancer charities in memory of my dear friend is also given)
6. A Home Insurance brochure. (All our insurances are dealt with by the farm's Insurance Broker).
In other words - none of it was of any interest. The lot went into the bin unopened ready for recycling. Does this seem a waste of resources to you - or is it just me? Surely it is a waste of paper, a poor use of manpower, extra, unnecessary work? Does anyone actually read these brochures and order from them?
