I do not smoke. Nor, in fact, have I ever been tempted to smoke.
When we lived in Peoria I got a letter in the mail, addressed to me, one day from Marlboro. Junk mail sure is getting strange, I thought to myself as I tossed it in the trash.
Then I got another letter from them. And another. Then I started getting small packages. I just kept throwing them in the trash.
Then we moved to Lincoln. I didn't think much about the Marlboro mail issue. Until I got a large box in the mail, addressed to me. They had found me.
I was dying of curiosity to know what was inside, but in the end I never opened that one either. I still get small packages every couple of weeks from them. I have yet to open a single one.
So my question is, why does Marlboro think I smoke? Did they target all Amy Roses across the country, or did they actually follow my move from Peoria to Lincoln? Does anyone else get mail from Marlboro?
In other junk mail news, Devin gets a lot of coupons for baby items addressed to a Kevin Rose. So, did the baby-items-coupon-people get his name wrong, or was there a Kevin Rose living here at one time who also had a baby? Strange, strange.
And last but not least twice a week, every single week, I get a credit card offer - for a credit card I already have. That makes me a little nervous about their competency.
All in all though, I get a lot of mail. How nice.
