“If you want something, it will elude you. If you do not want something, you will get ten of it in the mail.”  Anna Quindlen

I live in a rural area.  About two years ago, Canada Poste installed these banks of mailboxes to replace all of the old “mailbox on a post” banks on the roadways.  These new postal banks are away from the busy traffic areas, usually down a dead end cul-de-sac.  As a result I usually only check the mail once or twice a week.  I like it though, as our mail is much more secure, and we don’t get all the junk newspapers now.  Still lots of junk mail though – which is surprising.  

I would think with the advent of the Internet,  junk mail would become less and less.  It’s so expensive to produce for one thing – then even more to distribute.  I know because we did it for awhile to advertise our business a few years ago.  High cost for low return.  I don’t even look at the junk mail anymore  – a neighbor has placed a garbage can right by the mailboxes so we can just throw our junk mail in there and then he recycles it.  (Anything with our identifying information though – I bring home and shred)

 I guess we’re still going to be dependent on Canada Poste for certain mail, despite the fact that I take advantage of paperless billing as much as possible, and rarely even write a check or even a letter for that fact.  

Amazing how much the internet has taken over . . . but paper mail still persists!
