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?
I'm taking bets-- what happens next?
They'll deliver the Sunday paper today!
They'll deliver some other day's paper today!
They'll deliver something else completely, like a pizza, or some crayons!
They'll deliver something (anything) to your neighbor (again)!
They won't deliver anything and may put a hit on you.
