We were discussing a new product at work recently and decided we needed more information about it. I sent away for the information and had it delivered to my work address. The envelope had my employer address with ATTN: Jason Marketti
in bold text under it.
When I received the large envelop, it was torn open and it appeared that someone had looked through the material. I couldn't understand why anyone would want to look through it because it was clearly addressed to me. The people who collect the mail at the facility know who I am and where to deliver therapy product information.
I could understand if the information had "ATTN: Therapy Department" written on it, but this mail had my name on it in bold print, how could anyone miss that?
Maybe it is a privacy thing for me and I would expect mail that has my name on it to be delivered to me unopened. I have had other mail delivered to me unopened so this puzzles me.
Perhaps it was damaged in the handling process from the vender to me, I doubt it though. Maybe it was an honest mistake and whoever opened it realized that it was addressed to me. When that happens a sticky note saying so would have helped.
Maybe I shouldn't have mail delivered to me at work. Although the chances of me sharing the information with others at work is greater if it is delivered there. Sometimes I get product information and CEU information at home and I discard it if I am not interested in it, not realizing that others may be.
Why should this even bother me since I was going to share the information anyway?
