‘Tis the season. . .
. . . for a motherload of marketing emails.
Everyone has something to sell me this holiday season.
Little do they know that I’VE ALREADY BOUGHT ALL MY CHRISTMAS PRESENTS.
Because of this, I find the incessant stream of store emails incredibly annoying and I am taking the time to unsubscribe from the grievous offenders.
I estimate I’m getting about 1,000 emails a day, from all sorts of companies trying to sell me stuff.
I have a friend Joe, who doesn’t participate in gift exchanges.
He thinks they’re too commercial and encourage spending money on things that aren’t really necessary.
This is true.
My dad doesn’t need a coffee maker and my mom doesn’t need more wine, but I can’t help myself.
I love gifting.
It’s my love language, or something silly like that.
Nevertheless, all these emails are turning me into a Scrooge.
I can only hope that the emails will slow down once Cyber Monday is over with.
