Royal Mail Opt Out

To try and stop loads of crap coming through my letter box, I have signed up to the Opt Out programs for advertising etc.

I have found out that you can also opt out of the hand delivered Royal Mail stuff, this is the unaddressed stuff that Royal Mail deliver, this is of course good news, however Royal Mail as being complete bastards with it.

If you opt out, not only do you stop junk mail but you also stop important government information leaflets, this is so wrong I cannot believe, Royal Mail should not be allowed to do this, how are they getting away with it.

Surely its easy... this advert for some insurance company only goes to opt in people, this government leaflet goes to everybody, how hard can it be, it's just an easy way for the Royal Mail to scare people into not opting out, its disgraceful.

To cap it all.... its says that we might still get some of this junk mail when they use temp staff ! clearly they don't know how to train people either.

Phones on Airplanes

I shake my head in utter despair as I read a report that says airlines are going to allow people to use their mobile phones on airplanes.... what the hell.

Has anybody had the misfortune of sitting next to someone on a train making a call... HELLO ITS ME... it's horrible, the train (and airplane for that matter) are too loud, it disturbs everybody within 50 feet, come on can't you live without your phone for a few hours !! I for one can and welcome the fact that I am free from all the shit of everyday life.

Keep airplanes silent, keep mobiles banned.
