Observations and Perceptions of a Charlotte Bicycle Messenger
Monday, November 22, 2010
For those of you out there wondering if the courier business in Charlotte NC is still holding on during this country's deepest recession, I present to you evidence that it will take more than an economy to eliminate the messenger. Look at the smile on Rich and the resolute determination to provide great custom, customer service to the client on the face of Swazey, that's right 'ey'. The other day during our CMA meeting at Starbucks we discussed the future, not the past of the Charlotte Messenger business. Apparently there are some changes on the horizon for all of us as we pedal forward with a livity concept that dates back 6,000 years and beyond to the time when Gods walked the earth and called for their overland messengers to deliver scripts of love and orders to battle. And, when I say all of us, I mean all five or is it less than. Wait, one, two, three, four, five, yeah roughly five. That number may not accurately represent the entire Uptoon Messenger Pool, but it does quantify the couriers, including me that I talk to regularly and share information with. Work, work, work. I hear that all the time and yet it mainly just feels like growth to me. Monday morning, not so early. I slept in a bit and am heating some real bread for toast that will soon be bedaubed in butter and real jam. Then out the door for the big buildings and a short holiday week of only three days. Good day all...
