I got an interesting piece of mail the other day from a life insurance company, addressed to my husband who died 10 years ago. "Here's that second chance you hoped for, Mr. xxx." And, his acceptance is guaranteed, regardless of the condition of his health. Yep. It says so. In black and white. They go on to say they want to do something for a too-long neglected group. Ummm, it's really a bit late for a second chance, and I don't think his particular group is in a position to care.
I know names get on mailing lists, but really. 10 years and 2 moves later, and he still gets mail?
