With all of the crazy weather lately, the flooding of Parma yet again, and the fact that for the past few weekends I have been subbing some Plain Dealer routes, it has reminded me of some of the letters that I used to write to my customers. For those of you who don’t know, I started delivering newspapers back when my son was 3 months old, and I continued with it until April of 2016. In those 18+ years, I have seen it all. I’ve seen swimming pools fly, police chases, been almost impaled by surprised bucks, been chased and threatened by drunks, harassed by teenagers with nothing to do, and I was once even chased by a naked man in North Ridgeville, who was either mentally unstable or on some serious shit! I remember I had a hard time getting my car in gear because even though I was scared at the time, it was also quite humorous. Anywho, I have saved some of my favorites, and will post them here for you to enjoy from time to time. (With that said, I was more than accommodating to the disabled and the elderly at all times, and did my best to make it as easy as possible for them to get to their papers, BUT, I do not take well to threats, or entitlements, or down-right liars.) The following is a letter I received in February of 2016, followed by my reply.
Final outcome: Dick is still a customer, and lucky for him, I’m subbing that route NEXT>>>>LOL
