A new reason to be pissed at Globe Direct

At a meeting earlier this week, Boston city councilors vowed to call Globe Direct to account for its litterin' ways. When they call their hearing, though, maybe they need to reserve some time to talk about the behavior of Globe Direct delivery people. A Roslindale resident reports on an incident yesterday:

I was sitting in my house on Cummins Highway (by Sacred Heart) watching TV when I heard someone yelling "I've got to take a piss!" I look outside and see an older gentleman with no shirt on walking down along side my house, drop 6-7 Globe Direct bundles and take a piss behind my garage! I couldn't believe it but couldn't get to my phone in time to get a picture. I screamed at him and he took off heading down towards Roslindale Square.

Can we just

can we just start a boycott of ALL advertisers who put ads in that nuisance trash?? I'd start a list but that would mean I'd have to ever open a globe direct to know who to boycott.

Market Basket, Star Market, Stop & Shop, Rite Aid

are the main advertisers where I live (Davis Square), sometimes joined by Family Dollar.

For those of you in areas served by other supermarket chains, do Roche Brothers or Hannaford or Wegman's ever distribute their circulars this way?

Globe Direct has now entered the elite pantheon of the Greek gods of Uhub-dom:

In no particular order:

Bikes
MBTA
Storrowing
French Toast Alerts
Griping at Citizen's Connect Connectors for griping in the first place
Space Savers
and now - Globe Direct

Oh yeah - did I say bikes.

In my neighborhood, the Globe Directs are delivered by traffic-law ignorant bicyclists who buzz red lights and scare seniors. They get the papers from 12' foot delivery trucks, stuck under Storrow overpasses.

I wouldn't have described him as a "gentleman".

When you gotta go

By on

You gotta go. I'm surprised we don't have men, women and children pissing all over the place considering the giant containers of soda, big gulps, coffee drinks, etc. I see people sucking on all the time. We as a species must be evolving and developing camel humps or something. Gid help you if you're anyplace away from your home and you gotta pee. Good luck with that.
