i went through nearly 200 (physical) mails today. things i hate:

  • unasked-for customer magazines
  • redundant account statements (hello web??)
  • bills-cum-advertising
  • “special” offers from lousy companies
  • “moving” pleas from dumb charities
  • “management” magazines

maybe 10 of the 200 were relevant. if i get my banks to stop sending me statements which are online anyway they wont have an opportunity to spam me with their “special offers”. funny how marginal businesses that should focus on transactional efficiency want to create “added value” through stupid customer magazines. i don’t want to hear from my bank. they are eating my margins with their posturing. time for some shakeout.
