I'm less popular than "Current Resident"

Thursday, December 4, 2008

Sarah gets a fair bit of mail based on her professional status. Every day brings at least one piece of mail offering her (what seems like) enormous sums of money to come be a surgeon in a desperately unattractive location. They seem unable to screen for the fact that she’s currently in year two of a six-year program. She also subscribes to several journals and magazines. I, on the other hand, receive household bills and little else. The result? Sarah gets more than ten times as much mail as I do. In fact, we receive more mail addressed to “Current Resident” than to “Steve Davis.” I only received more mail than this accursed “Resident” on two days out of the last 30. Sigh.

you should have gotten that rolling stone lifetime subscription for $100 back in '03. by my calculations the bi-monthly magazine alone would increase your monthly mail received by ~15%. not to mention all the extra junkmail you'd get.

I have the same problem, except I LOVE not getting mail.

I wouldn't mind so much getting mail if every letter had to be 140 characters or less :-)
