I believe we need to have a "come to Jesus" moment. Look, I appreciate the job you do--all winter long, no matter how much snow we got, I received a newspaper everyday. That was amazing.
Problem is, I'm still getting a paper everyday. Even though I switched to Sundays only a few weeks ago. I did that for a couple of reasons:
- I need to save some money.
- I haven't been able to keep up with my newspaper reading.
Sure, I understand that when the pile gets too big, I can just dump it into the recycling bin. When I get to a breaking point, that's what I do. However, a part of my brain feels that when I do dump a stack a week's worth of paper without looking at any of it, I'm wasting money. I don't like wasting money.
This past week I knew I wasn't going to have time to read the paper, so I called circulation to put a hold on it. The man who helped me asked "how many Sundays" did I want to stop getting the paper.
Oh, yeah. I stopped getting the daily paper. Except that it keeps coming.
I told the circulation person that I was still getting the daily paper and to ask my carrier to stop delivering it. I don't know if you didn't get the message to switch my subscription, or you think you're doing me a favor by giving me the paper everyday. It's got to stop. At this point I'm cheating the Globe by not paying for my paper. Newspapers are still having a hard go of it, so I really don't want to cheat the Globe. Please don't add a new layer of guilt onto my conscience.
I'm getting to the point where I want to fully cancel my subscription. I can't deal with the paper showing up on a daily basis--at least for a few weeks, until my schedule clears up again and I have a little more time to read it.
You'll get one more chance though--I'm going to put one more vacation hold on. If I keep getting the paper, then I'm going to have to cut you loose.
Thanks for your understanding.
p.s.--I still got my Sunday paper, the one I put on vacation. What's up with that?
