Dear Similac

Maybe some of you can relate to this as well...

Dear Similac,
I was having a perfectly "fine" day until I came home and checked my mail. As I opened the mailbox, the contents nearly fell into the road because there was little room for them after the box of formula samples you sent me. Now I've gotta tell you, this is not the first disturbing delivery I've received from you, I receive your coupons on a regular basis. I'm not even sure how I ended up on your list.

However, the problem is that I don't need your coupons or your samples. You see, back in February we suffered a miscarriage. I'm sure that our baby would've loved your wonderful product and I would've appreciated the coupons. On several occasions, I've thought about writing you to ask you to please take me off your mailing list because it still hurts to receive these items. Then I wonder about the future and think "maybe someday we'll want to receive these things again..." and then I'm a mess.

I'm sure your deliveries are normally received with great pleasure by it's recipients. But I just wanted to bring to your attention that there are those of us out there who dread them. We understand that things don't always work out how they should.

Maybe I'm just hyper-sensitive, but it still hurts, almost 9 months later.

P.S. This goes for you too Baby Talk Magazine, Enfamil and Pampers!


  1. No, you are not hyper-sensitive. I get a Fisher Price catalog all of the time because I bought my niece something, and I called them YELLING saying, "I don't want your stupid catalog!"

    So it's normal.


  2. Ok, so I'm not crazy then! lol! Glad to hear its not just me... but sorry you've experienced it as well.

  3. I can only imagine how hard that is :(!

    I would probably call and ask to be taken off the list... but make sure they'll allow you back on when you DO have a reason to be on.


  4. I can only imagine how hard that must be.

    I would call them and asked to be removed, I know someone who called and screamed at a bank for continually sending them emails about setting up education funds!

    Lots of hugs!!

    Happy ICLW
