So, for two weeks in a row, I'm FORCED to buy two papers. The inserts are all messed up again this week!

Half are missing. I only got a valassis, no SS. There isn't a WAG ad, a BB&B ad, a KMart ad.... it's like they forgot to put in an entire little section of the freaking inserts!

Last week was shorted something too... and had an extra of the other. So I had to get another paper to get what I was shorted.

It's starting to P me off... dummy paper guy can't even put the inserts in the paper correctly?! COME ON!

That stinks. I hate it when my inserts are missing. I hardly ever go get another paper though. Maybe I should do that next time.

I hate it when the paper gets screwed up. Is there another box that's close enough to go to, which possibly has a different guy delivering to it? Or, you could always call the paper circulation department and complain about the lack of quality assurance this box seems to have. That's probably what I would do.

I've been pleased with my delivery person lately...they've been double bagging the paper so it doesn't get wet!

We have snow on the ground, in the air, all over the place, and for whatever reason my delivery person still doesn't get that you should probably not leave the paper in the OPEN box in a snow storm without a bag. We all know she's a real winner anyway, though. No holiday bonus coming to her from me, that's fo' sho'.

I'd take the open box any day. Ours gets delivered to the driveway so the double bag is very important!!

Ours used to come on the front porch, but our paper lady kept forgetting us because we didn't have a box. So, she installed one, and then forgot us the next day. She's a winner for sure. Our open box is right next to the road where the ice and slush get thrown up by the constant plow trucks coming by.

I would definitely call and complain!

Last week our paper hadn't been delivered yet when we woke up, so I called on it and they came with one right away. This morning it wasn't out there again when we woke up! DH was about to call, but then I thought we should wait til 8--not everyone has a one year old who gets up with the sun. Sure enough it came at 8.
