Boy, I signed up to this site post-haste

https://www.catalogchoice.org

I don't know how we get on the mailing list for Adam and Eve, but imagine my embarrassment at opening my rural mailbox to find a catalog advertising bedroom wares. It looked like it had been thumbed through, too. I bet the old ladies at the tiny PO in our tiny-tiny town had a scandalized peek at the naughties and skimpies before sending it our way

Zounds IF I want to order that kind of stuff, I'll do it online thankyouverymuch, and expect to receive it in a plain brown wrapper with a discrete, non-identifying return label . I don't want to be getting some blatant, sexually themed catalog in the mail!

Just imagining those little ladies at the PO looking thru that! LOL

Everytime we got an unsolicited catalogue I would immediately e-mail their customer svc dept. requesting we be removed from their "lists." Always told them IF I wanted to order I would go on-line.

Our mail carrier was very happy!
