Got this email from a reader the other day. What do you think?
What if you purchase (or want to purchase) something that is too heavy to carry several blocks…like several bags of groceries or a boxed bookcase or tv stand? Maybe you cannot afford a taxi and don’t have a car. I live 8 blocks north of DCUSA. I have to push these things home in a shopping cart. Unfortunately my work hours only allow me to shop on the weekends (during daylight hours) which by then the sale items are mostly picked over or non-existent
So for all you folks who think this is silly and wasteful, form an escort service for shoppers and seniors to help then get their purchases home safely.
