    Don’t teenaged, bicycling pluggers also have the same issue?

    It was kinda nice to get the paper in the A.M….had a real nice guy who would always get out of his car and bring the paper to the set it on everyones porch….One morning I looked for the paper and it wasn’t there….so as I was driving my usual route, I hear someone honking …It was my paper guy…he said he saw me go by, he was running a bit late… he said,
    " I know how you like your paper to read at work"…Now that is nice and does not happen that often anymore…

    If only all customers were that nice. I used to deliver paper on a morning route(actually 3) and very few of my customers were nice even when I went out of my way in the way I delivered their morning paper to do it the way they wanted. All I got were complaints that it was wet, late(whether my fault or not. In all fairness, I had a few that regardless what happened, as long as they got it they were happy.

    My husband and I delivered several newspapers in our career. You are right, some people you just can’t please. Thankfully there are enough of the nicest ones to even it out. We determined that the people that wanted the most service was the ones that was the hardest to get money out of and the hardest to please.

    Let’s talk ‘wet paper’ complaints. Sometimes a little shower will catch you off guard just before daylight. But, what makes me sooo mad, sprinklers. Why do people have to water their driveways and sidewalks. Are they trying to grow concrete for a backyard project?

    Hey! That was me this morning! I was wondering who was on the road that early on a Sunday morning and it was the paper delivery!
