Default Someone stealing my papers?

The last few weeks, I've either been shorted 3 of my 6 Sunday papers, or someone is walking off with them.

When I call to report the shortage, they only bring out one paper, so I'm still short 2.

Has this happened to anyone else?

:-) We had this problem when we first moved into our house.... It was the neighborhood dogs. They would steal our paper right out of our box. Probably not what is happening to your paper but I thought I would make you smile! My husband soaked some newspaper in Tobasco sauce put it back in the box and it cured the problem.

I'm sorry your not getting your papers and then to have the newspaper company only bring you one in return would be even more frustrating!

2 weeks ago I was only brought one paper. When they came to re-deliver, (luckily I was home) they were only going to give me 1 but I told them I was short 2.

Then with my Tuesday paper they delivered 2 more Sunday papers which had extra inserts in each one.

Very strange...not a problem since. Hope you get your problem fixed

They may not be delivering the right number of papers. Keep telling them how many their shorting you, even keep track on your calendar if it is a consistent problem.

We had one or two of our 3 papers missing on quite a few occasions. One of my neighbors commented that they were just leaving all the extra papers in front of our corner house, and she was getting rid of them for us. Very thoughtful of her. I just let her know that I was paying for 3 papers for the coupons. It was a pretty good laugh for both of us. Now we try to get the papers early, and we've been getting them all more consistently now.

Well, we called twice yesterday, and they didn't even come out with ONE paper, let alone 3. Very discouraging. The person taking the "missing papers" calls was pretty rude too.

Two days later, the rest of my papers got delivered this morning. Better late than never. Going to try and get up early to see what is happening next Sunday.
