Went to Walgreens on today to pick up the Sunday newspaper. They are running a special on it for 99 cents, which is almost half price for the paper. This is great when you don’t want to get the newspaper delivered to your driveway. I wish I could say delivered to your door, but those days are long gone. Now the “paperboy” is typically a fat old lady driving a broke down piece of shit gas guzzling minivan on the wrong side of the street at 4:00 in the morning, throwing the newspapers out of the driver’s window as she drives by.

If the old cunt is yacking on her cell phone (to who knows who at 4:00 am???) or its raining or if she is in a fucking hurry because she overslept or got out of the depot late, or any of the other shit that life throws at us, there is a 2 in 10 chance that she will forget to throw your paper in your actual driveway. Plus the odds are against you that the newspaper even put your address on the poor woman’s route sheet in the right order, or at all. Or that the newspapers got to the warehouse on time, or that they delivered enough inserts to make an entire Sunday paper. So if getting a Sunday paper is important to you, I recommend finding the drug store of the month or convenience store that is selling them for half price and stop in to buy your paper. The down side to that is that if everyone did that then there wouldn’t be a need for a paper delivery person anymore and those jobs are fucking important to these people especially these days with the economy still in deep shit.
