The Nuisance Of Pamphlet Distribution

Let me congratulate you in case you should live in the Mallorcan countryside. You will not suffer, I expect, from the irritating annoyance of advertising pamphlets being stuffed through your front door persianas or into your backdoor handles, as a matter of daily frequency.

If you live in a town, however, as I do in Felanitx, or if you reside in one of the charming pueblos on our island, you will no doubt feel scourged and troubled by the onslaught of marketing brochures that are distributed by the tons, here in Spain. The offending culprits are the Spanish supermarket chains, furniture stores, chinese take-aways, dental practices, stores of household appliances and travel agencies who try to coerce your custom. The up-side of the matter is that you can commit the pamphlets straight to the paper bin; the down-side is, however, that large amounts of these leaflets regularly litter the street of your community, being thrown away by annoyed neighbours and being dispersed and scattered by wind and weather.

The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: November 10th, 2009. The time was 12:11:01.

  1. It wasn’t long ago that it was the daily bread rolls left by the baker, in a bag tied to the front door handles, rather than pamphlets. I still see that here in some villages where no one would dream of stealing it.
