Someone out there deserves a thank you

And on a side note–it has been raining in California. A lot.

UPS, at least around here, decided that it would be cheaper this time of year to buy some bicycles with trailers rather than rent extra trucks, and to hire people (often college kids on break) to deliver the extra loads of packages that way. Stay in shape, earn a little money, and put a smile on the face of every person you ride past.  We’ve had the bikes deliver to us twice now that we’ve seen.

This morning nobody was in a hurry to dash out into the downpour to get the newspaper.  I finally opened the front door in the afternoon to–

–and there, tucked right against the door, out of the rain, were two packages.

And our newspaper between them.

Fun stuff. We don’t have the bicycle delivery guys around here…and of course, the rain would make that no fun at all right now!

We don’t have bicycle service here, but your delivery person has the spirit.Isn’t it nice to have someone take that extra little step. Kudus to him, and Merry Christmas to you and your family. Enjoy your little buddy Parker. Pat

What a thoughtful person. They’ll go far in life. Some boss will notice that he/she goes beyond the call of duty.

What a sweet, thoughtful gesture!! Three cheers for that delivery person. May it be paid back to him/her many times over.

Indeed that was most thoughtful. My UPS guy knows I’m handicapped, and has carried packages clear into the house for me. He once lugged in a big, heavy TV that barely fit through the door!

Oooh! Packages! Wonder what’s in ’em… (Christmas has got hold of me, for sure!)

Ours come in trucks here (given the many, many inches of snow, makes sense), and I’m trying to catch them at the door to give my thanks. What a job this time of year!
