Sweepers Only
I do the same! Once I got to the website and it was all for horses and livestock. I live in a tiny apartment.

Here is mine: I get emails letting me know that my Facebook "friends" are having birthdays, or I get a friendaversary post from Facebook. LOL - I don't even know those folks.

When the sweepstakes form requires a phone number, in addition to ALL your other info.

But MILLIONS of hearing impaired people do not have any type of phone, only Internet & e-mail. Sometimes you can put in all zeros & it will go through.

But, for example, last year I won cooking supplies from one of the biggest cooking sites. I kept wondering why it never arrived, so I contacted them.

They checked with the manufacturer, who was supposed to send it. The mfg told them they can't ship to anyone who doesn't have a phone number! You don't ship to a phone!

The cooking site people straightened the mfg out & I received my big box of cooking supplies.

Getting a "free" hat or tshirt after several hundred hours of filling out forms and deleting emails.

pausing in mid-conversation because you heard the UPS or FedEx truck turn the corner...holding your breath to see if they are stopping...and then back to the conversation; they went past...

After having a busy day away from the house and when you finally get back in the evening to relax hubby says " it's gonna be a late night while you catch up, huh?"

Another thing is every time you walk into the bank and all the tellers, etc turn to look at you and say "what did you win?"

Winning coffee, receiving it at the P.O. Box, and having the employees at the post office tell you that the wonderful aroma of your package has been driving them all crazy!

Signing up for freebies just so you'll get some kind of package in the mail to compensate for having a dry spell.
