That didn't take long. Today, the day after my 50th birthday, I got a letter from AARP, with membership card already printed in my name and dues card ready to go. What, they couldn't get it to me yesterday?
They bring to mind the Chinese restaurant a couple of blocks away. Order from them and the doorbill rings almost as soon as you hang up the phone. One wonders if they wiretap their customers' homes so they can have the orders ready.
If I do join AARP, which is unlikely at the moment, I wonder how much extra it would cost to get them to send the AARP Magazine in a plain brown paper bag. Don't want the neighbors seeing it & such.
