Really dude, cough up a few bucks will ya. Take it out of Linda’s checking account, she won’t notice.
How many people worked for nothing last night? NOTHING! NATCH! NADA! Why were they volunteering? Oh right, Pedro from Guatemala was making about $12.00 an hour throwing the rag on doorsteps each morning but there’s a guy out there who says he can do it for $10.50 an hour.
In the meantime Linda and John think its a swell idea if all the people who have suffered though buy outs, sales, lay offs, pension cuts, and stagnant salaries were not “asked’ to run around pre-dawn hours and deliver newspapers. FOR NOTHING! NATCH! NADA!
It will show what a family we truly are. And what a neat idea for a column? Oh this will be so much fun.
Anyhow, allow me to say what everyone at Morrissey Blvd is thinking.
“Hey Boss, how about a little something for the effort? Ya know what I mean string bean?”
Now me personally I think anyone who delivered for John and Linda today should find and extra thousand buck-a-roos in the envelope this month.
Hey Linda from Lynnfield, you better tell your hubby how it works. I mean those businesses on Rt. 1 don’t operate on the good will of their employees. Right?
Say it was a typical Thursday at Sleepy’s and the delivery guys say they can’t work so the boss calls in the sales people from other shifts and asks them to “volunteer” to deliver mattresses for the day.
What fucking planet is that guy on?
So I ask you Mr. and Mrs. Henry, what makes you and your paper different than Sleepy’s and their mattresses; and what makes your employee’s interchangeable and free?
