ArkAngel: A female mime on her period
mutterfark: Walker: "All these people knew her by name. Who knows their paper carrier by name?!"Who knew there were still paper carriers?Strangely I ended up doing this for almost 12 years. It started as something for money when I got laid off in the first round of the IT bust of 1999-2000. I was just starting out and was most expendable. I ended up as manager for a newspaper agent. Was making $40k/year when we lost our agency. Sadly, after a bitter dispute with my former employer after my last surgery, I'm throwing papers again. Dammit.(but it's income)Pangea: We have one. They leave us some unwanted, shiatty, advertising vehicle at the end of our driveway every day."Hey. Could you go ahead and throw this garbage away for us?"Why can't I tell them to stop delivering a thing that I absolutely do not want?! It's not like I could leave small appliances or crappy furniture in some guy's driveway every day without their consentIs it a newspaper or a freebie? If it's a newspaper your carrier is an independent contractor who throws whatever is on his/her list. If it's a freebie(out here the Acorn is the big one) you can usually call them and ask them to "skip" your address./life takes us down some mighty strange paths ;p
