It’s completely reasonable to have a sticker requesting ‘No Junk Mail’ on your letter box these days. I am one of those, yet on a windy day supermarket catalogues are like tumbleweed and end up littering our street.
As I dutifully picked up pages from my front garden recently I couldn’t help but be appalled by the selection of non-food commanding my attention! I hadn’t made the correlation between junk mail and junk food before. They sound the same, hey? I wonder what came first? Junk mail or junk food? Maybe there is a chicken joke in there? They are a perfect union. The supermarkets must get the message out; it’s a desperate price war. Who can sell the most sugar and processed food for the best price? Wow, Fantastic! I’d better get to the shops.
Actually I did go to the shops, I drove to each nearby supermarket and surreptitiously filled my pink “green-bag” with as many catalogues as I could. There was something in these for me….
