Won't Miss #25 - mailbox junkmail bombing
In America, it's illegal for people to walk up to your mailbox and just cram advertising in it. This is the reason why restaurants in big cities hang menus on your door handle rather than cram them in the mailbox. In Japan, anyone can cram anything they like into your mailbox. If you go away on vacation for a week, you're likely to return to a box that is bursting at the seams with advertising of all types.
I won't miss having to weed out the crap from my mailbox everyday or sorting through it all to find my real mail.
