Wall Street Journal

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.

road to house under that snow

Imagine a rolled up newspaper somewhere in the first ten feet under two feet of snow.

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.

Pity, it is the best newspaper in the nation. And this must be the worst, most boring post I’ve ever put up on this blog.    Have to add something.img_7462 14-08-29-091 tumblr_n6ydas3YzE1rwxhnlo1_500 picdump-14-10-10-161Better.
