Real Life MMD: Can I keep the magazines?



  • I seem to remember reading somewhere that there is a difference between first and second class mail - undeliverable 2nd class being disposed of rather than returned to sender?

    When my kids went off to college, needless to say they did not bother to redirect their mail, I would simply redirect it when it arrived, that was in the 1990's. Such redirection does not seem to work in the noughties?!?

    However, as you have just moved, suppose something were sent to your old address, what would you expect the occupier to do with something of yours?

    Now you do the same.

    What can she do? The previous tenant hasn't left a forwarding address. If I'd done that, I'd expect the occupier to bin it.

    Keep reading the magazines, you've tried your best to report it.
