To the Boston Globe Circulation Department
In this day and age of newspaper subscription decline I have cancelled my subscription to the Boston Globe. The reason is that when we have snow on the ground the carrier throws the paper into the area of snow. I keep my sidewalk, walkway to my front door and driveway clear of snow. I have had this problem in the past and when I called to complain I was told it would be taken care of and received the paper for 2 weeks at no charge. The first couple of days the paper actually made it to my front porch. I also received a call inquiring if my paper was on my porch. After a few days the paper then was thrown either on my front bank or in the middle of my yard. there is no problem when the snow is not on the ground. However when I have to walk 10 feet in a foot of snow to retrieve my paper it is unacceptable. Hence I cancelled the Globe after being a subscriber since 2004. For $74.00 for 4 weeks this is extremely high for a paper thrown willy nilly onto my property. I receive the Salem News every day and it is delivered to my back porch. The bag reads Globe Direct. It is unfortunate that my Salem News can be delivered to my back porch and the Globe is thrown anywhere on my property. Also I regularly receive an envelop in the Globe from the carrier looking for a tip.
