Okay. Someone explain something to me here. When did “Magazine” stop meaning “bunches of glossy pages stapled together mixing light reading and colourful advertising” and start meaning “Junk E-mail”?
Because I’ve signed up for some Free Magazines for arthritis sufferers. And I was expecting to get, you know, actual magazines. Instead I get these emails filled with handy tips like “try taking Aleve for Your Arthritis Pain”. I also get countless emails for power chairs, canes and, ironically, the AARP.
I guess I get what I pay for and free is free so I should stop complaining. But I do wish they’d be a bit more fair and call it something slightly more accurate, like ‘e-newsletter’.
