More junk mail

I had a follow-up phone call from a representative of the company that sent me the mobility scooter bumf. Had I received it? Would I like to arrange an appointment to talk about my requirements? He seemed rather nonplussed when I told him what I'd done with his catalogue. He said he'd take me off his database - we'll see.

Meanwhile, amongst today's offerings was a flyer from some local estate agents offering me the world. They are concerned about me: 'Are you about to loose [sic] your dream home?' I'm tempted to ring them and say that should I ever have a cottage in Northumberland that I plan to release back into the wild I'll let them know. They have also used commas in place of apostrophes. Good grief.

  1. Julia, that's too funny. You know what 'they' say?

    "If you love something, set it free.
    If it comes back to you, it's your's.
    If it doesn't, it never was."

  2. How refreshing to find something humorous about flyers!! I use them to light a fire in the log burner and never thought of having a titter about them! If I get another politician leaving their bumf in my letter box, I will take a leaf out of your book...and tell him what he can do with his manifesto! : )

    1. Thanks for calling by, Angela. I almost feel sorry for your parliamentary candidates. Almost, but not quite.

  3. The question is, would the mobility scooter fit through the doors of your new home?

    1. Wendy, I hope it's many years before I have to find out.
