I've missed two weeks. Got the next one, the June 11-18. What is going on?
Is the mail crew reading the cartoons? (excuse me, drawings). This is deprivation row for me, I say not entirely sardonically.
In my particular city, or at least in my area, mail is slotted to the residents by a contracted facility into wee chambers every so many hundred feet.
My mail is often buried in advertising flummox; easy to miss a bill.
So, ok, I'm ranting.
Galls me, I used to specify these kind of stupid mailboxes. I'm paying my dues.
That's happened to me -- missing weeks. So frustrating.
When I've complained to the New Yorker I've gotten free replacements. Never knew if it was their end or a sticky-fingered mailperson.
Given mail delivery rep here, I'm doubting it's the NY'r. I got them late, back in old north north, on occasion, but not this late. Low budget person that I am, the NY'r provides hours of actual tactile reading pleasure, away from the computer chair.
You live in NM now.......
The good thing is that they're online more fully now. Gee, I would have missed the Saatchi article, and who knows what else, as I can't just call up the late May issue. Well, maybe, with more effort. I'm just whining.
Sand covers mailboxes, mail cart drives by....
Uh, oh, they're taking my New Yorkers
According to our mailman, The New Yorker has the worst delivery record of any magazine. Why this is, I doubt anyone can be certain, but I personally feel that something is gummed up in the New Yorker mailroom I mean, five days late week after week?
