Today, at least in New York, is one of the worst possible types of days to have to deliver packages on a bike. At this point, it's mostly rain, but there's still slushy crap on the ground, and the rain that's coming down is pretty damn cold. In the summer, I'll sweat my butt off - and I won't care. In the winter, snow's not bad as long as you wear goggles. But this freezing slushy rain crap? There's nothing worse. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Unfortunately, I work in web design, so we don't use messengers for anything. If we did, I'd give each of 'em a dollar or so. (depending on how quickly it'd make me broke). It's always infuriated me that we tip EVERYONE in this city, but the people who break themselves every day don't get crap. Tip your messenger.
