Wasteful Advertising

All junk mail is waste but here are two particularly useless and this wasteful examples.

Verizon keeps sending us, about weekly, a letter with accompanying folders inviting us to switch to FIOS. The ridiculous part being that, while being mailed to our current address, it explicitly states the address of service: our former apartment

And today I got a great offer from Delta Airlines on flights to New York City. I'm typing this on our porch, and if I stand up and look to the left, I see the Empire State Building. I checked, it is still there. Delta airlines wasted a bit of advertising budget on us once more.

UPDATE: Me and my big mouth! When I threw them into the trash, I mean recycle box, I noticed those Delta flights were FROM New York. It was still SPAM though.
