- 99% of the junk mail we used to get has been eliminated.
- More freedom: We are far less dependent on mail system than I thought possible. I am convinced our country could survive if we had mail delivered MWF instead of daily. And how much money would that save us?
- We can usually predict what is coming: some paper bills we still get, a few RV magazines, a post card or letter now and then
But you never know what is waiting in the mail and sometimes we get surprised. We did last week:
I got a T-Shirt in the mail along with a hat. From Safelite Auto Glass repair.
About 18 months ago (April 2011), while we were in Albuquerque had our windshield replaced on our car. We were so impressed with that, we had a technician come out to the Roadrunner and fix some chips. Both Danny and John did an excellent job and I wrote about it in a blog.
I was very impressed and gave them high marks on the follow-up survey. I am not sure if I suggested they send me a shirt or mug or hat so I could advertise for them....It would not be beyond the realm of possibility as I have been known to do that occasionally.
At any rate, when we got our last batch of mail, we had a box with nice letter from them along with a T-Shirt and hat. Nice touch!
You never know what a nice word now and then will bring. Or a smile as you walk through WalMart. I don't do either often enough. But sometimes I do.
That is it for this edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles! Thanks for joining us! Until next time...
