Okay so I notice in my mail that I got the smartsource flyer. It has the loyds BQ cp and a 1.00 off Peter Pan coupon and a Hormel Chili. I also have a PO box and got to thinking about how most people just toss these at the PO in the trashcans next to the tables for sorting mail. So I head to the PO and of course there are a couple of cars outside even though it's closed. I mess around in my car and wait for them to leave and get impatient waiting on this one couple to go in the PO (lol maybe they were waiting on my so THEY could stalk the CPS) and go in and sure enough, 6 trashcans FULL of this flyer. I casually grab a few and decide to go back later tonight when I will have more of a chance of being alone...

Is this illegal? I mean, they threw it away in a PUBLIC trashcan... hehe. I'm sure there are cameras but who is going to watch those unless something big goes down. Am I completely NUTS?

It's not illegal. If they wanted it, they shouldn't have thrown it away.

Not illegal at all ... in fact, once something is pitched it can even be retrieved by the police and used in evidence without a warrant. That's how not illegal rifling through the trash is. The only trick is trespassing, but they have to ask you to leave and you have to refuse before it's *really* trespassing, so you're just fine.

And since you rent a box there, I don't think they could do that, even...

Thanks Guys! I finally got the baby to sleep and headed back up there and scored 10 more inserts!

I told hubby I was going to make a deposit into the bank (which I did that too) so he wouldn't have me committed...LOL
