Are you using the “royal we”?August 28, 2012 8:13 pm at 8:13 pm #511552
Lines were busy when I tried to complain about no paper on my porch this morning. Had to “privately browse” to see the website (even to try to report a service problem).
Wouldn’t even categorize then as irrelevant if there is no way to see the friggen’ thing.August 31, 2012 11:58 am at 11:58 am #511553
I bet they’re having production problems again today. No paper, busy signal on the service line. I bet they’d be sympathetic if I had a problem producing payment for home delivery.August 31, 2012 12:15 pm at 12:15 pm #511554
Twice this week no paper. I think the transition to the new format in a couple weeks is rocky.August 31, 2012 12:45 pm at 12:45 pm #511555
But at least it’s worth getting charged for yesterday’s news to not be delivered, because we are transitioning to a “Smarter Format”.
I wish I wasn’t so set in my ways.November 7, 2012 12:52 pm at 12:52 pm #511556
Only the Dispatch would be 2.5 hours late on election day. Sheesh.November 7, 2012 1:19 pm at 1:19 pm #511557November 19, 2012 12:23 pm at 12:23 pm #511558
