The Morning Mail [Oct. 17th, 2015|10:40 am]
Tony Grist
My mother's mail consists almost entirely of catalogues, advertising and appeals from charities. Going through it with her paper knife used to make her feel connected and still in charge- but now it just frets her. She hands me a catalogue for womenswear and says, "I don't know what this is. Aileen can deal with it."

I became vigilant about unwanted mail. I would mark it "return to sender" but a lot of it still came regardless. One customer service person I called said "write 'return to sender' in a thick market and use a highlighter around the edges" and that worked. Some places I called seemed to ignore it. I figured out a fake address, a house number that did not exist, as a solution to mail that doesn't stop, but I figured that would be too mean for the postal service.

One place I lived at... a prior occupant had Scientology mailings still arriving. Those never stopped LOL.

The place we live at now, the previous owner had passed away. A few years after we moved in, a Christmas card arrived for him. That was sad.

I don't always remember to check the mail box. It's rare for it to contain anything of real interest these days.
