GOING POSTAL: in the postal zone HOW TO...

...I see people still think if you mail a brick to a credit card company, using the business reply envelopes, the company has to pay postage. This is no longer the case. Companies have the right of refusal. I see lots of bricks being thrown out at work. Were I to save then, I probably could build a new garage in a few months time out of the post office's trash. Still, if you have the urge and anger towards Banks and credit card companies and whatever else is out there, simply take the forms they mail you, fill it out with a ficticious name and nearly real address and send it back. They'll fill it out and mail off the credit cards and samples to the address, which will cause expense from sending, and another from it coming back "addressee unknown". The time lapse usually means they'll have sent several other forms and letters before the company has the address and name deleted.

You can also forward unwanted junk mail as follows:

Joe Doaks
c/o Publisher's Clearing House
382 Channel Drive
Port Washington, NY 11050

Now, get on with it.

Sounds as though the bricks should be returned to sender, postage due.
