Can I have my mailbox back please?

by Jessie K on November 6, 2012

I voted. And now for the love of sweet Mary, can I please stop receiving those glossy pamphlets featuring a down-on-her-luck, hard workin’ American gal wearing overalls and carrying a wrench? I don’t know what’s more offensive — the daily glut of political propaganda that’s awaited me in my Netflix box these past three months, or the suggestion that the lady of this household wears overalls. Oh no you din’t.

Unless it’s 1992 and I’m on my way to a Salt-N-Pepa concert with a guest performance by Milli Vanilli, I do not, repeat, do not wear overalls. Just because I live in the country DOES NOT MEAN I WEAR OVERALLS!

(Unless it’s really, really cold and I’m forced to break out the insulated Carharrts.)

AMEN LEAVE ME ALONE I don’t really want either one of them. They seem to think the more they cram their propaganda down your throat the more you will believe it. Bah humbug. For ten cents I would write my Cattle Dog’s name in. He would be more honest and smarter. Vote for Mad Max Hooligan. Take a bite out of Congress.

Oh god – early 90s flashback! Thanks for that momentary respite from election coverage overload.

We have all mail in voting in WA, soI voted weeks ago. I wish I could have opted out of mailings/phone calls/e-mails for the last 3 weeks. My recycling bin runneth over…

oooh lucky you.. you got a sticker! My county is so poor we didn’t get stickers for voting! I am with you on the endless calls and mailings. I am not voting based on a commercial.

I too am so looking forward to the end of the political campaigns. I haven’t gotten much mail from any of those running and didn’t see the one in overalls but I’d be just as upset with it as you were.

Nice sticker! We just got the little oval ones – but my 6-yr-old daughter got one too since she helped me put my ballot in the scanner. I’m with you on the junk mail. Our phone was taken off the hook 2 weeks ago (have to have a landline for internet out here) and won’t go back until tomorrow.
