Online shopping is all the rage these days!!
“Extra 25% off online orders.”
“Free Shipping on all orders over $50.”
“Order now and it will be there by December 24th.”
Shoppers count on the shipping magicians to make it happen! If the vendor says it will be here on time, then by George it will be here on time.
But do the vendors and the shoppers realize that their packages are not the only ones promised to be delivered on time? Do people realize that UPS, Fed Ex, US Postal Service and Elf Express are working as many hours with as many vehicles as humanly possible?
A friend told me the other day that she saw the mailman driving his car that was so packed down with packages he could hardly see!! It’s not safe! hahhaha And have you ever seen a delivery driver speeding to the next house with the long-awaited packages? He might as well have a red light flashing on top of the vehicle so everyone can pull over and let the “emergency personnel” drive by. hahhaa
Today’s Twelve Days of Christmas Kindness Challenge is to show a little love to your postal worker or delivery person. It’s a hard time of year for these folks and showing a little extra kindness will brighten their day. Some ideas may include a gift card for lunch somewhere, a WalMart or Target gift card, a coffee mug with candy, a water bottle, a batch of homemade fudge, tools for a male driver or fingernail polish and lotion for a female driver, etc. The possibilities are endless!
I know it’s Sunday, but get prepared today, and leave it for them tomorrow. It’s just a little Pick-Me-Up for the people who do the heavy lifting!
