One of my two friends has a dilemma:
My morning routine is always to get up, shower and then go downstairs and have my oatmeal while I read the paper. Generally, I go to the front door at around 6:50AM and my paper is there. For the past 2 weeks my paper has not been waiting for me when I open the door. The paper only arrives at about 7:15PM.This messes up my schedule and makes me irritable. My paper ‘boy’ is a middle-aged man who doesn’t have 2 pennies or 2 brain cells to rub together. I want to call and complain but I feel bad for him. But, on the other hand, this is his job and just because he may be hard up doesn’t excuse the fact that he’s not waking up early enough to deliver the paper on time (delivery is promised by 7AM). I’m torn. Do I or don’t I call the the newspaper’s offices? By the way, this is the same guy who took his 2 teenage kids Trick or Treating and was pushing a shopping cart so that his kids could dump their loot in it and go get more.
I suggested: 1) Ask the delivery guy why he’s later than usual; or, 2) Call the newspaper’s office anonymously, just saying what street you live on.
What do you think?
