Neither ice nor snow stops her
This last Sunday at 4 a.m., I thought of something for the first time as I looked outside and saw our paper lady. It was approximately 18 degrees and very icy weather. The next time some man throws down a $10, $15 or $20 tip for a pretty little waitress carrying his food across a warm dry room and she didn’t even cook it, let’s think of people who really deserve it.
First of all, I, for one, could do without my paper in extreme weather. Our paper carrier is a lady of let’s say baby boomer age. From her limp, I’d guess she isn’t doing deliveries for the exercise or for fun. She had to use a cane, since it was too snowy and icy to get up our hill. She also sometimes trips over kids toys left scattered in people’s yards, or on overgrown shrubs. But she always wraps the paper, even in the summer, for those of us who get our decks wet watering plants, etc. So be generous with our real dedicated servers. Merry Christmas!
