   Tampa Bay Times' customers subscriptions have been drastically declining for the past few months, more than usual for this "non-s****.>


   Also, for those of you concerned about your safety and seek out gated communites to live in for that extra piece of mind that you won't have any bad people coming into your neighborhoods - ...I've got some bad news for you too! Tampa Bay Times currenty has a convicted felon delivering their papers under someone elses name to a gated community in the West Pasco area, and this has been going on now for quite some time now. I wonder how the residents of that, or any other gated community for that matter would react knowing that while they were sleeping Tampa Bay Times has given a known convicted felon a gate code to enter into their development.... Anybody that gets one of those routes with a gated community has to be bonded, and there isn't a convicted felon alive that can get a bond - that's like allowing a sexual predator to live right door to school! YOUR SAFETY COULD BE AT RISK!!


   ....and for you Tampa Bay Times customers that request a special delivery instruction like: deliver to front door; deliver to porch; and/or deliver to garage/carport that aren't handicapped in some way, shape, or form - shame on you, get your lazy backside off the couch for a little exercise to walk out to your driveway to get your paper! For those of you NOT handicapped that insist on the special delivery instructions should be charged for that because it futher delays the driver to have to get in an out of their delivery vehicle to bring your paper to your "special spot" and with all of the changes quite frankly their will NOT be enough time in the night for every driver to throw all of the "special deliveries" and all the rest of their papers before the time alotted before the drivers will get charged a $1 complaint fee for a product we're getting paid .05-.09 cents each to deliver - ANOTHER RIP OFF that screws the drivers   


  Please consider these reasons an extreme that a local advertising company has gone to to stay in business and compete with competitors like The Tampa Tribune. There are several unhappy drivers that feel tremendously taken advantage of but can't leave because they are handicapped and this is the only job they can do or they have a "REAL" job M-F 9-5 and they need this job to supplement their small income.


  After reading this do the right thing and CANCEL your subscription to the Tampa Bay Times!, ...or if you were considering subscribing to the Tampa Bay Times - DON'T DO IT!!!  ...if your living in a gated community right now Tampa Bay Times could be putting your safety at risk - BE FOREWARNED!!
