AARP, Drives me Nuts!!!!!!!!!!! You could heat my house with all the Junk Mail I receive from them. I will never ever support anyone or anything that has no REMOVE ME from mailing list.Hear me people I do not want your junk mail. Seriously they drive me nuts How do I remove myself from their mailing list? Does anyone else have this problem with them. Everyday I receive something, insurance, membership, you name it. They must be out of their mind to think someone would join an outfit only to be driven crazier. Gee WHIZ ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just turned 50 last year and the AARP solicitations started coming. I can just imagine what would happen if you joined. I aint ready to receive an adult diaper in the mail or a 20% discount from a funeral home just yet.

I'll never have the attitude someone owes me anything because of my age.

I worked for a company that was always looking for ways to save money. When I turned 50, they bought me a 3 year subscription to AARP. Then I could use the discount on my motel bills. I was on the road about 1/3 of the time. That $35 dollars saved them thousands on hotel bills.

Their mail would make real good fire starter for my wood stove if I had one, but as it is now it works real well serving that purpose when I want to lite off the burn barrel.

I can tell you how to get off a mailing list, anyones in fact, real quick....Cost them money.

All that mail has some sort of Business Reply Envelope where they pay the postage for its return. Contracts with the post office, they HAVE to pay for any return mail using those prepaid envelopes. And the amount is higher than regular postage.

The max amount the postal service will take is 70 lbs with a combined width, height and gurth of 108 inches..

So simply take one of their business reply envelopes, use some shipping tape and apply it to a cinder block, which are still fairly cheap. That will run them $30.00 or so in return postage.

Do that a couple of times, and they will get the message.

You can write them all the letters you want to get off of a mailing list, and that never works.. this does...

If the keep sending you stuff, switch to using an old bald tire..
a Pickup truck sized one..they get the message fairly quick.

Not only does it work, it gives one a feeling of satisfaction.

Also considering that these places all sell mailing lists back and forth, believe me.. it will get you off of a lot of other people's mailing list real fast..

a bald 31 x 10.50 truck tire costs them about $75 or $80.. and by postal contract, they have to pay for it..whether they like it or not.

I'll guarantee this works real well..

I learned this off of a lady who was a customer of mine about 10 years ago. She was trying to get off of some company's mailing list, and after a zillion letters to them, nothing worked.. her son who worked for the Post Office told her about this.

So she tried it several times.. Not only did she get off that mailing list, but a whole bunch of others..plus she was rewarded with a scathing letter from that company's president.

Which she promptly framed and put on the wall in her office.
gotta love happy endings like that one.

I LOVE getting AARP mail.. I just take the prepaid envelop, fill it (and I mean FILL it) with pro-Second Amendment stuff and mail it back..

One small step for mankind.. laugh

Since I've aged and grayed, clerks are always asking if I want the golden age discounts. I've never understood that, as I've earned and still have a sh-tload more money than the youngsters around. They're the ones that need the discounts.
