You won't believe this

Direct mail campaign gone wrong: AGAIN! You may remember my post about the Portland realtor who mailed a mess of a direct mail out to a list of people paired with the wrong names. Long story short: her direct mail firm screwed up and paired couples incorrectly on the mailing. So it was addressed to me and someone I've never ever heard of. Her follow up mailing was still wrongly addressed.

Guess what came in the mail today? You guessed it! Another postcard from this same realtor, suggesting we plant trees in our neighborhood. But it was addressed to me and this other woman whom I have no idea who it is! It's kind of freaking me out. It's gotten to really be the direct mail company, or list, from hell, and she should just dump the list and start all over. If I wasn't such a happy-go-lucky person, I'd be pissed off about it. But you know me. Hahahhaahhahaaha. Sigh. Good times.

UPDATE: Okay okay. I was being sarcastic in my little quip there about being a happy-go-lucky person. BWAH! I'm so not. AdRi read my blog and totally called me out on that. SARCASM people. I was being sarcastic. That is all.

Wow. I'd send a reply letting these people know that they are totally stupid sales people and should probably be considering what unemployment can offer...

On another note, for some reason when I'm at work your site comes up as 'error 404 not found' I thought you'd left us! :( Glad you're still here! :) (stupid new web filters... :P)

I'd definitely let them know they are asshats. You know, just to f*ck with them.

that is bizarre! don't know how they expect to make money if they're not addressing their direct mail correctly.

I like carrie's and patti_cake's ideas ;)

Maybe she's looking for 'reject' guy from the previous post!

that is just so sad. It is a common problem. If I were more coherent I could describe how because of unisex first names, I somehow got listed on some official records as well as multiple mailing and phone marketing lists as my stepmother's husband. Odd considering how against gay marriage they are in NC -- yet I was able to accidentally marry my stepmother. All because some loser in some office filled out some name wrong on a form.
