What the HELL, Verizon?!

I went to the mailbox this morning and found one lonely form letter waiting for me - a serious disappointment and totally not worth crossing the street for. Yet another solicitation letter from Verizon. Verizon was our sworn enemy for a while as B had raked up hundreds of dollars worth of debt with them from the band days. One day he just stopped paying and they weren't too keen on that. But we've since made nice and apparently they're quite forgiving. Amazing what a $350 check will do.

So while we were once receiving cellular death threats from Verizon, we are now receiving wedding wishes. Except that... wait... I don't think Verizon was on the guest list, were they? Oh wait, no they definitely were NOT. So can you please explain to me how the hell they found out we were married and are now sending us congratulatory offers regarding said marriage? (No, I didn't change my name with them, no we haven't filed taxes yet, etc.)

CREEPY! Any way you slice it and any explanation you can put forth still makes it creepy. Normally I'm pretty good at keeping any kind of big brother paranoia in check, which is impressive if you knew my father, but this one was a little much.

i used to have to scour the property transfer records in lexington to see who had bought homes worth a half million dollars so we could solicit their business for the store. you can pay for information on marriage licenses, property name it (in some states).

best of luck with verizon!!

Oooh, that IS creepy! Too bad they didn't send a more tangible wedding gift. Some more wine would have been nice.
