What do you look forward to... In the mailbox

Posted 31 May 2011 - 09:37 AM

I don't get much in the mail anymore, but occasionally something shows up that I look forward to. It's usually something like the B&H Catalog (geek heaven) or one of the dive magazines I get every few months. The Victoria Secret catalog/sales aint bad either... just sayin'

What do you still get in the mail that you look forward to?

-Programmez magasine is cool too!

Wow, I can honestly say nothing. I've pretty much got it to only receiving bills.

I'm with CharlieMay on this one. I never get anything except junk mail and bills. Far too many bills.

Letters are wonderful surprises, I still have some friends and family who write letters.

I actually enjoy the act of sitting down at my desk, paying the bills, and balancing my checkbook. So, bills aren't the nuisance others may consider them.

Packages of electronics, video games, and other stuff are always awesome.

All you need to get your mail more interesting is to do like Chris, get the Victoria Secret subscription!
(No offense Chris, I know you don't use thoses, is just take some ideas for future presents like me!)

I'm pretty sure the reason Chris gets the Victoria's Secret catalog is to give the coders trapped in his basement something to read on the single 5 minute break that they get every week.

With the day that I'm having, I'd happily trade it all for a spot in that basement. I might actually be able to get something done without having to worry about the coworker who technically has seniority over me, but decides to sleep an hour or more each day, then immediately wake up and start telling me what I need to do before the end of the day... I really want to stab people sometimes. I guess it's a good thing I'm not a complete sociopath...

I tend to look forward to getting mail from my friends (I currently have 2 out of the country). Granted, this is all email. At the moment I don't normally receive anything except bills in the mailbox... It is a bit of a boring thing to get...

I feel your pain, Sometimes my coworker(bosses) do the saime, and then at the end off the day they say the saime too.
"Havent you finished yet? I gave like 5hours to finish that"
"No you didn't bastered you just gave me that task."

The most interesting things that typically show up in my mail box are court summons for the previous resident of my house, who has yet to inform the authorities that he no longer lives here.
