Dear Milkman, Part 2

Dear So and So...


Dear Milkman,

I am sorry I had to let you go. It wasn't personal. Remember when our relationship was first starting? You delivered more milk than I knew what to do with. My husband suggested offering sex to get you to stop. Ah, those were the days.

And really, we did have a good year together, didn't we? Organic whole milk waiting at my door - every other week. Saving me countless trips to the store for the expensive milk my baby girl consumed - some days like water.

But then there was that troublesome issue with the bill. You know, the bill you never left for me to pay. The bill that caused me countless phone calls from -and games of phone tag with - your billing department. Seems milk is not free. Well, duh, I know that. But how exactly is a customer expected to pay a bill she never receives? I am left to ponder that one ... after paying $129 - in one lump sum - ouch!

I must admit my porch does look a little sad and empty now that our insulated milk container has been taken away ...

But good riddance to you. I'll be purchasing my rbST-free milk from the market ... or Costco if I am feeling really adventuresome.

From Moo to You,
MommyBrain

We had this happen with newspaper delivery. But in our case we had cancelled the delivery and the delivery person kept throwing it in our yard. The delivery person was actually sent to our door looking for payment. I sent Hubby out to tell them to go fly a kite - not my fault they kept throwing newspaper on my lawn.

I'd love to have you drop by my place: Life Makes Me Laugh

Ooh, I had the Newspaper thing too. And, you'll appreciate this one. We canceled our subscription because the numerous typos were too distracting. We still end up with it on our porch from time to time. My husband, in protest, said to leave it there. Then it got rained on, as happens often in Oregon, and the we had paper pulp. Guess we showed them, huh?

No one will deliver milk this far out of "the city," and all the CSAs are pick-up, which is funny since we're closer to the farms. It's hormone-free grocery store milk for us too. (And Costco on the occasion I want to drive 45 minutes.)

We got totally suckered into the Smith Brother's Cartel as well...They've been delivering since the end of June, and....NO BILL...Looks like I'm not the only one, LOL! Oliver is now drinking more milk than they deliver, tried to up my order for the last three weeks, the slip is always gone, no extras. ARRRRGGG! Time for this girl to kiss the milkman goodbye too!

Sad, especially since they inspired me to re-start my blog! But we let them go long ago and haven't missed them. My delivery guy was hot though! Mike. mmmm...

SPEAKING FROM THE CRIB said...

am i totally oblivious. had no clue milkmen still existed. we def need one at my house. my husband has a phobia about drinking or eating the last little bit of ANYTHING and he loves milk, and i really just ignore the problem most of the time, and so what i find at the end of the week is about 5-6 gallon jugs of milk with just a LITTLE BIT left in them. little does he know that i pour them all into the jug that appears to be the fullest, so he really is drinking the last little bit whether he likes it or not.

Too funny! It sounds great to have milk delivered, but what a cost, literally :-)

I didn't know they even delivered milk anymore!! I used to do that and even when I did get a bill it was still "ouch"! to pay it each time! lol Monkey hardly ever drinks milk. I can only get one glass down him a day. I have started using PediaSure in the afternoons to get extra vitamins.

I LOVE my dairy delivery. I blogged about it, too: http://broadbrains.blogspot.com/2009/03/dairy-deliberations.html
I don't know if this is available in your neck of the woods, but it's worth looking into.
