Please tell carriers to use the newspaper tubes! Not in the tube? No Christmas tip.
I have addressed this issue many times over the years, and here I am talking to a wall again. Tell the carriers to use the newspaper tube. We did not give our carrier a tip at Christmas for this simple reason. The paper is ALWAYS on the ground. When it rains, the bag is often torn or not tied and the newspaper gets wet. The tube is not what I would choose for a lawn ornament, it is there to hold the paper. Please tell the carriers to use it.
Also, tell the carrier to SLOW DOWN in the neighborhood. She comes through just about the time the kids are headed to the bus stop. The speed limit in our neighborhood is 20mph. She is doing 30 - 35.
I agree with another customer who posted: go back to the youth carriers.
