    A paper route was a great way for kids to earn their spending money, Too bad most papers have gone to adults only routes.

    Not only that, the kids who delivered back then were way more reliable than the adults who deliver now.

    When I was growing up, Mom got a special metal box put on the house for the paper (it rained a lot there). No way could she get the paper boy to put the newspaper in it, even though it was labelled “Newspapers only.” Nope, it was dropped on the front porch or nothing. Nowadays, everybody has those little plastic newspaper boxes-on-a-stick. Times change.

    These days it is adults that have those routs.

    This exemplifies Lucy’s psychiatry skills perfectly.

    When my twin brothers were paper boys (over 40 years ago), they rolled the papers perfectly and never needed rubber bands. I remember taking turns, one day going with one twin, the next the other, and each twin gave me my “own” house to do.

    I was a paperboy. When I ‘folded’ my dailies to throw onto porches, they never came undone … without the need of rubber bands. A couple of my customers wanted the papers tossed onto their 2nd story porch (duplex houses), which I also did well. I had apartment dwellers who lived on various floors with landings, and was able to toss them from the ground level to the various landings. Developed quite an arm back then. Paperboys are a thing of the past though. Now adults deliver papers whilst driving the wrong way down the street. I sometimes wonder if the demise of paperboys was due to the laziness of today’s kids, or because of child predation.

    I’m going with laziness which is in turn a result of NEVER having to earn anything.

    Our son had a Sunday only route of about eighty papers. I’d get up with him and drive him ( before hockey practice ) and he collected once a month. At eight years old he was making close to $100 a month. Christmas $500 easy.

    Nowadays we get our daily paper delivered by someone who drives a car to deliver newspapers.

    When all of us old folks pass on, print newspapers are history.
