    ...opening credit card offers, writing NO! STOP TORTURING ME!! across the credit application part and restuffing it back into the enclose business reply mail envelope. They weigh at least 2 oz, since I stuff everything back in, including the envelope it came in. The company has to pay return postage.

    Muahahaha. [​IMG]

    Deliciously evil! They've pretty much quit with my credit card offers now. Maybe they saw my bank acct. [​IMG]

    Oh, great idea. Maybe some duck poop smeared on to weight up the papers.

    Wait, it is illegal to send nuclear waste toxins though the US Mail. Drats.

  6. I have to pick my mail up at the post office, we live quite rural, anyway they have a garbage can there so none of the junk mail even comes home. They notice who does this and they quit putting it in your box. It's grand!

    As for the CC stuff I have often done that too, and the Mag subscriptions offers, and anything else that comes with a pre-paid envelope. And since I'm already at the PO it's really not a bother at all! Ah the peace of country living....

    OH, I love it! How deliciously evil, I'm going to start stuffing their return envelopes with their own junk!!!
    Can't stand all the wasted paper the cc people put out.
    Now, what to do about those catalogs....
