OK let me RE WORD this...Is it acceptable for your place of work to USE your address to send you religious pamphlets?

I've looked into it, checked my facts and I'm 99% sure it's them.

  • And OF COURSE it's unacceptable. Who'd be silly enough to think otherwise?

  • Could it be another employee from work that has gotten ahold of the addresses? It's not acceptable for a job (unless it's a religious job) to send things about religion to your home address. How do you know it was them?

  • Your work is sending you religious pamplets? Does your work have anything to do with religion? How often are you getting them. If it is only a few a year I would throw them away and not risk my job over a few pamplets.

  • I dont know if it is acceptable but if its a pamphlet just toss it out if you dont agree with it. It could be a coworker or someone else entirely that is sending them to you and wants you to believe it is directly from your work.

  • It's probably not the right thing to do for a business however if you don't want the literature just throw it away.

  • Even though you are 99% sure, you can't prove it. A few months ago I had a web design client who was horrible to deal with and then tried to get a backhanded refund after she had her site designed and uploaded on her server (she filed a complaint with her CC company). It took a lot of fighting, but finally I did get paid. Within a week I started getting hundreds of spam from all kinds of companies. I know it was her, but I can't prove it. Same for you. At least with yours you have some sort of paper to send back to the sender. Maybe you should bring a few to work and scatter them in all the trash cans. That way you can send the message to whichever person is sending you the materials. Also, I would call the church and ask to be removed from their mailing list, they might think you want their literature.

  • I don't really mind getting religious mail but that seems wrong to me. 


    Answer by MrsHouston47302 at 9:50 AM on Apr. 6, 2011

  • Just throw them away.

    Answer by pookiekins34 at 9:52 AM on Apr. 6, 2011

  • Or just flat out ASK them if that's what happened so the air can be clear. You can't lose a job because you asked about some mailings.
