Chicago Reader press critic Michael Miner wrote earlier in the year about coming home from vacation and seeing a bunch of Chicago Tribunes piled up — even after canceling the paper.
Today he writes about trying to stop delivery of the Tribune’s weekly ad flyer, Red Plum/Local Values. (“It’s the advertising rag that Just. Won’t. Go. Away.”)
He makes a weekly call to the Philippines, where Tribune’s customer service operators are located, and asks that the freebie publication be stopped. It never is.
My advice, Michael: Forget the phone calls. Instead, wait for the delivery guy (you work at home, right?), and make it clear to him that you never want to see Red Plum/Local Values on your lawn again.
