The Jerusalem Post

Hardsell at the Jerusalem Post. For years they've been trying to get us to subscribe to the paper copy, claiming that it would arrive daily. Over the years we've tried a few times, but daily doesn't mean on time.

Quite a number of years ago, when my father-in-law was here, he subscribed in one of those deals, first couple of months practically free, then you pay, and it was a disappointment, since the paper came late.

Since then he has passed away and is buried in the local, Shiloh Cemetery, but like clockwork the Post's telemarketers call him to sign up again. Each time I tell them that he's no longer in this world, and they should delete him from the list.

About a month ago, my husband agreed to try again, and this last attempt was worse than all the previous ones. The paper comes by mail a couple of days late at the earliest. We demanded that they cancel it, and it has taken days for the cancellation to take effect. All it does is stuff up our tiny mailbox with old news. And for that they're charging us money.
