Somehow I managed to get on the mailing list for AARP, the Organization Formerly Known As The American Association Of Retired Persons But Now Known By Acronym Only. I probably put down a fake date of birth on an unrelated website that asked me for my age many years ago, and now every few weeks I get junk snail mail from the organization courting my imminent membership.
The mailings offer me all sorts of protection with no necessary medical exams. Perhaps I should hold onto the junk for twenty years (you just have to be 50 or older), because they may change their policies in the mean time. I will always have the “But it says on my application…” excuse.
I’d be worried if in twenty years organizations still accept paper applications through the postal service.
