Oh the memories:
The people we bought our house from kept telling people to mail things to our address because they were going to travel around in an RV and end up in Florida somewhere. Apparently they had not gone very far for their first destination. The guy was coming back during the day while we were at work and checking through our mail for his mail! It was a bit freaky. Finally we mailed a letter to him at OUR address and he finally stopped.

Yes, I wonder if she made ANY address changes.

Yes, for 5 years. Weekly, I get a handful of mail for old residents. I sent it back. Sometimes it's returned to sender. Other times, it come straight back to my house. *sigh*
The post office is really no help anymore... seems we've run out of options.

No, but I get my neighbors' mail all the time. Oh, and in high school I'd always get mail for a guy who had the same last name as I, despite being in a completely different year.

For a while, but it didn't last long.

Occasionally we get post for the man who lived here before us. He also died here, so that makes it even weirder.

My family has lived in our house for 9 years now and we STILL get mail for the people that used to live here.

Yeah sometimes.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 3/20/07 - 7:43:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I don't but we still get calls from people that had the previous phone number.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 3/22/07 - 8:56:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, we get a few different names and it's very annoying.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 3/22/07 - 1:34:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
There are always a few.
14 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 6/18/07 - 11:22:14 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nah. It'd be awkward. We've been living here a majority of my life. Although when we first moved here, I heard some questionable scary motorcycle men came over asking for someone.. but the house was vacant for a number of years before..
14 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 6/18/07 - 11:25:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. We've been living here for almost 14 years.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 7/9/07 - 5:27:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. I later ran into the guy in a bar (it's a small town) and he told me to throw it all away.
14 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 8/14/07 - 3:56:12 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, we did when we first moved in here but that was more than 10 years ago.
14 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 8/22/07 - 9:16:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, we were the first people to live in this house.
But we get the neighbors' mail all the time. I live on a street called Deep Trail Lane, but adjacent to it is LONG trail Lane, AND LONG TRAIL TERRACE! Ugh... once, we came home and found guys digging holes in our yard! And actually, they were Comcast guys who were supposed to be digging in the house on LONG TRAIL LANE. By the time we caught them, they already ruined my mom's garden.

yeah we kept getting an amex bill for the previous owner. After sending them back "return to sender - moved" for about a year, i eventually sent a letter to Amex and told them in writing to stop sending them to this address. took a while after that, but they stopped
