Don’t Forget to Take Care of Our Delivery Heroes in Shreveport
It is safe to say that the pandemic made us all very dependent on delivery drivers. Do you have an unhealthy relationship with DoorDash or Uber Eats?
When It Felt Like the World Shut Down We All Relied on the Help of Delivery Drivers
From food being delivered to our front steps to groceries from our local supermarket, it seems like we all took advantage of delivery options.
We have a long-standing joke among my group of friends that our Glammy keeps Amazon in business. Growing up, her son Jude was convinced that their UPS driver was a rich man who brought gifts to their home. The Gonzales family has had the same UPS driver for over 15 years now.
One thing that my Glammy does for her driver and for any delivery driver that comes her way is she leaves snacks out. She will bake cookies, she will put out Gatorade, water, and any snack that she thinks the drivers working long hours might appreciate during one of their many stops.
Why Are People Leaving Snacks and Drinks Out for Delivery Drivers?
It's a simple "thank you" in the form of fuel to keep our drivers going. During a time that many folks may blame their late deliveries, mess-ups, and overall bad experiences on their drivers, we all need to be kind to the most overlooked superheroes.
Don't forget to thank Santa's biggest helpers who are working overtime and doing their best to make our Christmas a magical one. Thank you to our UPS, Fed Ex, Amazon, U.S. Postal, and every other driver out there. Christmas would be so stressful without you.
