For almost a year, a DHL guy from Lipa makes a 30-minute motorcycle ride to our house traversing the dangerous zigzag road in Cuenca every month just to deliver my Adsense check on time in our house in San Pascual. They just can’t complain, because I paid DHL $24 to deliver it to our house. Rain or shine, they deliver.
My father is the one who is always accepting the package since they only deliver during weekdays while I’m here in Manila. Since they didn’t know what the package contains, my father told me that these DHL guys sometimes asked him some questions. Like, “Why do you have this monthly package? What does it contain?” where my father would simply reply, “An important document from a friend abroad.” Some of them are even suggesting that I should send the package here in the office rather than in our home in Batangas. I think, they are a bit uncomfortable having that long and dangerous trip every month and having no additional payment because that is just a part of their job. I say dangerous because it’s a zigzag road, with provincial buses and big trucks accompanying you, with a deep cliff on the side. (Tama ba? may bangin sa tagiliran?)
Well, good news for them. Since I already opted for Western Union Quick Cash, yesterday was their last trip to our house (Yes, I received my check yesterday.).
I just like to say thanks to these DHL delivery guys whom untiringly and courageously delivered the checks to my house, rain or shine. Thanks a lot for bringing the checks safe and sound! Kudos to all of you! Thank you very much.
Their boss should give them a raise.
