I do sincerely hope my Santa stamps trigger someone out there.

Actually, I'm bothered far worse by the cost of a stamp than I am by what's on it's face.

I used to be offended by junk mail, until I realized that without it, that .50 stamp would likely cost a dollar. So I stopped complaining.

no, actually I'm replying to a thread, stating that I think, in my own personal opinion, it's pretty darn lame to be offended by a postage stamp....but I believe this country is dog dead tired of people crying "I'm offended".

It's all hypothetical. OP simply asked if people would be, I myself have never known anyone offended by a stamp nor has there been much if any confirmation in the thread that some people are.

thanks

but you hear so much these days about people being so offended by nothing....why not just "walk on" and stop allowing others to annoy you...there are much bigger fish to fry.

Itís really still not common though. By that I mean we all hear about it, but personally I donít know people who fit that description at work, in my family or otherwise.

I don't either, wouldn't hang out with such a cry baby, however, I hear about it all the time on the news...this one is offended and companies cave to that offense, and/or say I'm sorry, so? And I should have been more clear on that....I honestly do not run into it at work or with friends or family. However, would be real funny while with friends to try and pull one over on them and say, "I'm offended by what you just said". LOL, and see what happens.

Taking offense is a choice.

It would be interesting to keep our noses peeled and when we see this happen, post the article for discussion...?

and yes, middle-aged mom, being offended is a choice, but I believe those that do this, already know before their claims of something being offensive, will cause companies to cave into their whims, for fear of law suits?
