This morning, December 14, we received the local paper meant for Thanksgiving Day with heavy advertisements. I am quite puzzled by this. Did the delivery person want to throw away the old trash without filling up their own trashcan? Or, did she/he genuinely make a mistake (I think it unlikely because the oldness and heaviness of the delivered paper). In any case, the point is that we did not receive today’s paper. I think the delivery of papers used to be much more reliable in the past (say, 10 years ago). I wonder if this is one of the signs that tell us that the society has changed in a way that made people lose conscientiousness and pride in what they do. Or, I wonder if I am simply entertaining nostalgia about the past that never existed.
