Lucky Magazine: mystery subscription

April 3, 2008

The secretary handed me a subscriber copy of Lucky magazine yesterday.

Addressed to me.

At work.


It appears, according to the mailing label, that I have a subscription through the end of the year. If my puzzlement isn’t entirely evident, I’m confused. I have no idea where this subscription came from, nor do I know why it’s going to my work address. I never send any sort of postal mail to work, that’s weird.

I asked my coworkers if any of them were trying to hint that I need help with either shopping or style, but they all denied responsibility. There doesn’t seem to be any indication that this is a gift subscription, either.

    I’ve had a mystery subscription once too. Just randomly I started receiving Stuff magazine at home. I got it for just over two years and then suddenly, just as randomly as it started, it stopped. I never received a bill or call or anything about it.

    We randomly got Rolling Stone here at work for awhile. We make shingles so it’s not like we are in the entertainment industry and it applies to work. Still have no idea why or how we had that.

    I wish I received random mail at work. I only receive boring work-related catalogs (and my job is really boring).

  4. Maybe it is one of those promo “randomly send mags” things?

    Wish I were that lucky LOL

    damn girl.. what’s up wid you and getting free stuff all the time

  5. ~Howie~ Thanks for commenting! I’m considering giving them a call to find out where the sub came from. Too curious?

    ~chocoholic~ Welcome! So this isn’t a completely unknown phenomenon? Was that subscription addressed to one person in particular?

    ~savingdiva~ I don’t even have time to open the packaging here, so it’s a little less fun, but it’ll be good to have some emergency reading for the train since I forgot my book today.

    ~FB~ 🙂

    I’m hoping it’s to make up for the tram leaving early w/o me yesterday making me an hour late going home, the train leaving early w/o me this morning making me half an hour late to work this morning, and my purple pen exploding in my bag this morning. Three bad things, three free things 🙂

    I think the Rolling Stone was addressed just to our business but it was awhile ago so I can’t remember exactly. Fortunately, I have to sort the mail so I would keep them at my desk. 🙂

    And I’ve been checking out your blog for a little while but haven’t commented until now.

  7. ~chocoholic~ Whoever works the front office often gets to nab Big Boss’s random subscriptions, too, if they’re addressed to the business or him. 🙂

    It’s good to hear from you, and I hope you plan to stay de-lurked!
