My imagination

Many mail boxes in Melbourne have a little sticker on them that say "Advertising material not accepted, thank you" - which is to prevent the people who stick real estate fliers and pizza delivery menus into your mail boxes (seriously, stop doing that pizza people).

However, whenever I see one of those signs I just picture the mail box as a giant monster and when someone puts mail into it's mouth it chews once and determines whether it's advertising material or not. If it's not, it happily gobbles it down. If it is, it spits the pizza delivery menu out with a polite but firm "no thank you."

How does your imagination run wild?

  1. Those are the kind of signs we need on our mailboxes. I barely get letters, it's all "junkmail" or advertising material.
    P.S I dream of flying...

  2. Haha - I'd love to have one of those stickers as I hate junk mail, but I don't want to miss out on drooling over yummy pictures of pizza!!

  3. I love the pizza flyers, absolutely hate the vehicle and appliance flyers. I wish I had a sticker. Or a mailbox monster.

  4. We have stickers here that say, 'NO unaddressed mail." There was one church that used to ignore the stickers. I used to imagine confronting them; about the sticker, how environmentally wasteful it is to put paper in my mailbox that will go straight to the recycle bin and how I didn't read about church in English so I certainly wasn't going to do it in a foreign language. I was going to do this very eloquently in said foreign language (in reality I don't even speak eloquently in English; let alone in a foreign language but I imagine myself making very eloquent speaches) but they never seemed to deliver when I was home and I haven't received one of their flyers in a long time.

  7. Sadly my imagination is no where near as entertaining as yours! But a mail box monster would be such a great thing to have!

  8. Hah, that's a good one. Too bad the mailbox monster doesn't just swallow it and recycle it automagically into chocolate chip cookies!
