Well the dreaded day has finally arrived.
Here in the US, at a certain point in your life, you are sent a letter from the AARP asking if you want to join their organization. That’s the American Association of Retired Persons.
This letter is sent nowhere near to when you are planning on retiring. How the AARP is able to mail these offers out so accurately near to your big birthday is a mystery to me. I happen to work in this type of database marketing, and I still don’t know how they do it. Maybe I should have titled the blog ‘Old Dad’.
Oops, in the process of opening up their offer, my feeble old hands seem to have torn the envelope into a pile of unreadable garbage.
I’m sure they will send me another one in a few months, they don’t give up so easily.
