It seems like nowadays anytime you get mail, it’s either mail from people wanting money from you (i.e. bills) or junk mail. We no longer receive letters from friends and family, just piles and piles of junk mail. This can be so annoying. Most of the time I get the mail, then dump it all into the recycle bin. No, I don’t want your TV services, I already have cable and am totally happy with it. No, I don’t want to sign up for the 4,000 credit card applications I get each month. I’ve even filled out the forms where you can ask them to stop sending junk mail, and it seems like this only gave me even more mail. Well when I came across this idea on how to stop junk mail, I thought it was absolutely brilliant! Good bye, solicitors. Hello, no mail days.
Oh look! A credit card application. Well, most of us have heard of the ‘Mail Your Enemies Glitter’ campaign. This idea is similar, but is definitely for enemies that send you pre-paid envelopes.
No Postage Necessary! Even better. Time to load up this envelope so they’ll be responsible for the postage back to them.
This person had a little box of beads that definitely weigh quite a bit when put in an envelope. Not only does this add some weight, but when the beads spill out they get ALL over the place. They’ll be finding these for months.
And here is the envelope all ready to go. They know that this may be a little childish and pointless, but he knows that when they open it up there will be a few swear words yelled at the top of their lungs.
Another way to get back at them is by scribbling over the black solid lines on the pre-paid envelope. The post office will have to hand sort the mail and the receiving company will be charged more upon return. This may not stop junk mail completely, but you’ll definitely make someone SUPER mad when they open up the envelope. At least the thought of their anger will make you happy and make all the effort worth it. Even if it doesn’t stop junk mail completely, it would be a pretty fun prank to pull on solicitors.
