It's the most wonderful time of the year! Unless you deliver packages for a living.
Yes, all of our online shopping brings in big bucks for FedEx, UPS, DHL, and the US Postal Service. But the employees at those places are under a mountain of work, buried in packages, and it's hardly a season to be jolly. More likely, tis the season to have sore muscles, a headache, and feel run over by the delivery truck each day. FedEx says more than 19 million packages were shipped on Monday. Here they come.
How late has your mail been lately? Don't be mad at the carrier - he or she is drowning in letters, boxes, and catalogs, and after looking at all the addresses, we're lucky his or her vision still works well enough to find our houses.
