Signs of age...

1.Well, that didn't take 'em long...

Actually, for an unknown and strange reason, I got a bunch of mailings from AARP about 25 years ago.  I finally got fed up with it and sent them a letter saying that I was a 26 year old mother of a 4 year old, 3 year old and 1 year old. I didn' t have time to think about retirement and besides, at that point, I was entirely doubtful that I would live that long...The mailings stopped.

Until now.

2. Paperless billing -- tired of filing more and more papers, I have begun to avail myself of this convenient option.

So far, it has cost me 3 late fees...It's getting to be an expensive convenience.

3. As I left the grocery store parking lot, I saw many people carrying lovely bouquets of flowers to their cars, and then I remembered that was what I came for. I had to go around the block and come back...on the upside, we have more than enough eggs for the rest of the month.

4. I know there was something else...hmmmm...

5. #2-4 have been happening for some time now...It's just bugging me more this week for some reason.

Hey Les, at least they took a break until you were 50 - they started mailing me for membership at 48. Made me realize that I was really going to be 50 - seemed ugly at the time. Now, I can say welcome to the club. The 5-0 club is ok.

The paperless bills are making me crazy. In theory it's great however; not in real life.
Hang in there, it'll only get worse!

My friend is 26 and the AARP mailings just started for him. No idea where they get the notion he's old enough for that (not to mention, AARP is not for Republicans).

About Me

Needing an outlet for various thoughts rattling in my head, I've created two blogs -- One about my real life (leslieisverbose.blogspot.com) and one where I can vent. (leslievents.blogspot.com)
