Apparently our names get put on mailing lists which are sold to those companies. I'm getting offers for funeral insurance, life insurance, and AARP every couple of weeks.

I think that the people who send these things out are too young to understand that not all people over a certain age are dependent upon these products. These people make unwarranted assumptions based on age bias. It's a bit like assuming that all young people are gangsters based on their age. As Spock would say, "That is not logical!"

aarp has prolly spent several hundred bucks sending me promos, i guess it's a tax write off and they will continue. if you have a major health issue, you even get promos from funeral homes.

Many companies know more about us than we realise. I wonder how they know when we've turned 50? I have no idea what Jazzies are sorry.

At 40 the over the hill jokes start, I guess by the time 50 rolls around they think we hit rock bottom. Pox on them.!!!. Everyone wants you to plan your funeral too. They got us dead and buried too.
