Yesterday when Boo grabbed the mail we saw that we’d gotten something from the U.S. Census Bureau and, stupidly it would seem, assumed that it would actually be the 2010 Census.
It was actually a letter telling us that we would be receiving the Census in the mail sometime in the next week and we would need to fill it out and send it back in.
Seriously, Census Bureau? You wasted thousands of dollars and killed countless trees to send me a letter telling me that you would be sending me something in the mail in another 7 days? What could the point of that possibly be? It’s as though they are acting under the assumption that no one in America owns a television or has cable or has been living under a rock and therefore has not seen all of the annoying 2010 Census commercials that have been airing for the past few months thus making it imperative that they send out this mailer to say they would be sending out the census.
Well, congratulations U.S. government, specifically the Census Bureau, for that monumental waste of time, money and resources. Well done.
