Had to cancel the WSJ. It’s a little expensive but that wasn’t the problem. Reading all the weeks papers took up to much time but that wasn’t the problem. Got a real long trek from the house to the street each week with the yellow recycle barrel, and that wasn’t a problem but getting closer to it.
This is the problem.
All of a sudden, the delivery person for the WSJ has begun ‘tossing’ the paper onto the (unpaved)
driveway private road leading to the house. And that can’t happen, especially in the winter since a rolled up newspaper concealed under the snow can jam a snowblower in the performance of it’s duty.
In my correspondence with the robot ‘intelligence’ running customer service for Dow Jones; I’ve been unable to get that concept across.
Our service standard is to deliver to driveways when possible. The standard varies for multi-unit buildings, depending on carrier access to the building.
So what about roads? A 350 foot, unpaved road that services two houses and a total of three buildings. Is that not more a private road than a simple driveway? And a jammed snow-thrower would be four hundred feet from it’s garage if it became disabled.
Pity the delivery service for the WSJ are such robotic dickheads. Cancel.
