The Post Office

So, I can filter my e-mail precisely, unfollow on Twitter, de-friend or acquaintance on Facebook, I’ve even been able to “opt out” of unwanted phone calls. But I can’t stop the Post Office from giving me crap I don’t want.

Here’s an idea, I don’t want anything that says “resident.” Anything that says “Current Resident” “Former Resident” “Future Resident.” If it says resident, I’m out. That eliminates a lot right there.

Next, I don’t want anything that doesn’t come in an envelope. If I want coupons, I’ll go buy a Sunday paper, (which I don’t get anymore either) or get them online.

There now, I’ve just eliminated 80% of the crap that I don’t want, saved a few forests, and a few postman’s backs. And maybe the post office would save some money, or at the least, offer a little better service from the ol pony express.

Come on, post office, join the rest of us in this century.
