Pathetic post is a pain

Have your say

Have you ever had what I call ‘pathetic post’?

It’s that mail that comes through your door in quite a big pile, and you rifle through it to find there’s absolutely nothing that’s directly for you.

But you think some of it must be for you or must be quite interesting because it’s such a big pile.

But in the end, it’s either direct mail stuff addressed to ‘The Householder’, which you think is going to be for you because it comes in a proper envelope, or it’s catalogues for stuff you’ll never use, along with something like a letter from Barclaycard offering you 0 per cent interest.

I was just wondering what the most pathetic load of post you’ve ever had might include.
