Paper Chasing

OK, so I get the Sunday paper delivered, mostly for the coupons. (Technically, I get Thursday through Sunday, even though I only pay for Saturday and Sunday, and only really want Sunday-- it's confusing, I know.)

I didn't get my paper last Sunday, so I phoned for redelivery Monday. It was too late for it to be delivered Monday, so they'd send it Tuesday.

Tuesday: No Sunday paper.

I spoke to someone Tuesday, who said oh, that automated system doesn't work in your area. (Nice to know!) She promised to call the carrier and send one out.

Wednesday: No Sunday paper.

Wednesday I spoke to someone else, who assured me I'd have my Sunday paper Thursday morning.

Today: I received a Wednesday paper with my Thursday paper.

I phoned again. "I'm so sorry, we'll have a supervisor drop off your Sunday paper right away."

A few moments ago: I just received a second Thursday paper.

This isn't the first time I've had trouble with the Gainesville Sun, but it's probably the best-documented.

Now, I'm a pretty patient person, but this is pushing the boundries of even my patience.

HELLO, IT'S A NEWSPAPER. I WANT THE ONE MARKED "SUNDAY," PLEASE. HOW DIFFICULT CAN THAT BE?
