Every morning when I open the front door and see our two newspapers(his and hers) there I say a little note of thanks to our carriers.
What treat it is to have something delivered every day...I lived for years in a remote country location and buying a newspaper meant a long drive to town. I never take this little luxury for granted.
Our carriers DO leave us cards with their addresses and I really appreciate it. I am not up when they come by and I tried leaving envelopes for them and they were never picked up.(it is dark most of the year and the guys are in a hurry). I also worried about them falling into the wrong hands etc.
With the card and addy I simply write a cheque and send it off.
I undertand and appreciate how hard the work is and how low the pay is. I hope all my guys customers give them a tip-15-20.00 for almost 365 days of service is nothing!
You think you're not ever going to be able to eat another thing, but alas, you will find yourself feeling strangely peckish around teatime. The more you eat, the more you want. That's the way it goes."
