Idiots. Freakin’ idiots.

A couple Christmases ago I got my dad a subscription to the Smithsonian Magazine. Good general interest magazine, not too expensive, comes monthly, gives joy year ‘round.

This Christmas I renewed the subscription. And I started getting the Smithsonian instead of Dad. So I just packed up the magazine and mailed it to its true destination. And called the third-party subscription service, got them to fix the address and problem solved.

Wrong. The next month I got two months of Smithsonian. Mailed them to Dad and called the third-party subscription service, got them to fix the address and problem solved.

Wrong again. Just the other day, what should I find in my mailbox? Another month of Smithsonian magazine. Now I’m starting to get pissed.

Any suggestions for how to solve this permanently? Without using firearms?

  1. leave out some cottage cheese in the sun. get an old paint brush. paint the cheese onto the magazines. mail away.

    they will not forget!! ... it's how i got the military to stop sending me info. :)
