Senior Citizen with a New Baby

Do you ever wonder where some of your junk mail comes from? I sure do. In the last couple of months, I have started getting mail from AARP, Senior Citizens worried about Social Security, and various offers targeted at the retired community. I may be older than I ever have been, but I still have a way to go before I start getting senior citizen discounts.

On top of that, there seems to be another version of me out there in somebody's database that says I have just had a baby. They even (thought they) knew how far along I was, because the first package I got said "only 4 more months to go" and was full of samples of formula, diaper coupons and other items of baby related paraphanalia. (Just to clarify, my kids are in highschool, and no, I have not been recently pregnant.)

Four and a half months after I received the first baby set, I got another packet congratulating me on the birth of my new baby, and then just yesterday I got a packet "filled with lots of specials for me and my baby too". It seems I get exclusive savings and nutrition tips. (Here's my own nutritional tip...breast feed your baby and stay away from Nestle Good Start Supreme!)

What a scam! Nature provides us with the optimal nutrition for our babies, for FREE, and these Yahoos want me to buy some chemical crapola for my imaginary 2 month old baby!

I just wish they'd tell me whether I had a boy or girl, and what his/her name is!

Oh someone's pulling a joke on you! I did that to my high school English teacher with the Army Recruiters. All you have to do is fill out a card and mail it-and BOOM! there you are. Up to your eyeballs in sample diapers and a free nuk pacifier.
