Welcome to Mark's Rebellion

As you may notice, Mark has a sense of rebelion in his humor, politics, and other past times.  Be glad you don't have to work with him.

Here are some simple (but irritating) things you can do to fight back from ...

Rome did not create a great empire by having meetings,
they did it by killing all those who opposed them.

Junk Mail Rebellion

When you get ads in your phone or utility bill, include them with the payment.  Let them throw it away.

When you get those pre-approved letters in the mail for everything from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and junk like that, most of them come with postage paid return envelopes, right?

Well, why not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it in these cool little envelopes!

Send an ad for your local dry cleaner to American Express.  Or a pizza coupon to Citibank. (I especially liked this!) If you didn't get anything else that day, then just send them their application back!

If you want to remain anonymous, just make sure your name isn't on anything you send them.

You can Send it back empty if you want to just to keep them guessing!

Eventually, the banks and credit card companies will begin getting all their junk back in the mail.

Let's let them know what it's like to get junk mail, and best of all THEY'RE paying for it!  Twice!

Let's help keep our postal service busy since they say e-mail is cutting into their business, and that's why they need to increase postage again!
