"What Were They Thinking Thursday!!??" - Sly Snail Mail

Lately I have been getting the same bill in the mail over and over for my cable company that I canceled over a moth ago. I have called and talked to someone on the phone 3 different times to try to get this thing straightened out and for some reason man and machine can not converse. Each time I call, the customer service rep is so apologetic and says they just can't understand why this hasn't been canceled in the computer. I am starting to get really frustrated. It just seems to be a very inefficient use of paper and mail. 

How many times has this happened to you? You call and talk to someone on the phone to get something canceled or dealt with but you are never taken out of the system so you constantly get junk in the mail. My brother is 32 years old and hasn't lived at home for 15 years yet his credit card statement still gets sent to my parent's house even though he has called and changed the address numerous times. 

Another extremely annoying thing we get sent in the mail are magazine renewals. It is so frustrating because it's not time to renew! We keep getting statements that say, "Hurry, renew now! You're running out of time!" No we're not! We have 2 more years on our subscription. It gets really confusing because every time we get one we have to check quickbooks to see when the last check we sent was and how much longer we have on our subscription. They are just trying to get more money out of us and we will end up having a magazine subscription for 50 years! Does this happen to any of you out there?

We are just frustrated this morning and so we just wanted to vent a little bit! Just so we don't ruin your day thinking about all the accounts that keep sending you mail, here's a couple fabulous shoes from Miu Miu Fall 2011! Drool!
