Mail To The Dead. II

When I posted my Mail To The Dead last year, I thought that the mailer will somehow get to see it and stop sending further mails as I had rung up their office and had requested them to stop sending any more mail and had also completed the paper work asked for by them.

The Indian Public Sector companies march to their own drum beats.  I had posted my experience with them on the telephone immediately following my father’s death which caused quite a lot of amusement then.

Look at this envelope.


And the letter’s first page!

After the conversation I had with the lady last year, I had followed up with formal communication with copy of the death certificate and also an affidavit confirming that he did not leave behind a grieving widow. Today, when I rang them up again, there was a different lady at the post and she promptly suggested that the mail must be delivered to the widow. When I said that there was no widow she was stumped and said that there is something wrong and that she will rectify the records.

I shall keep you posted on developments as I am sure that something like this happen again.

    The American solution would be to simply register yourself as the widow.

  2. Yes, our mess with the insurance company has returned, too. 🙁

  3. zI get 5-6 pieces of mail per week addressed to Lynn. It simply goes in the recycling bin. People much smarter than I get paid to handle the marketing for these companies and so who am I to disagree with them. One of the senders is her insurance company – interesting as I received a notice from another company stating a claim was denied because Lynn is dead. Gotta love insurance companies – that claim had been open and unpaid for over a year.

    Craziness! They even referred to him as “late”. Wow….

    Are you sure that LATE isn’t one of those strings that get consolidated down to just LATE – I can’t think of anything satisfactory other than Love All The Earlybirds…

    Aaargh! RR, let me pretend to be the widow, sign whatever’s needed and finish the matter off. Frustration!

    And that would make me your fake mom. Respect.
