    Let's take a look at the special 2-step process which ended up with efficient delivery of newspapers at the new paper route job @PopeADope said he was getting:

    Why are newspapers (and phone books for that matter) still even a thing?

    Because old people from that generation still exist.

    Just think of the stink if some people didn't get their daily supply of toilet paper.

    Its not just "old people" from any specific generation who grew up with those and without online news and phone numbers. And I know lots of Boomers and surving Greats who have moved on. Of course it pretty much is a geriatric demographic who still uses those (and primarily cable news as well), but it's pretty much stubborn people who haven't moved on (such as how I am happy and content in having let all the "fake life" e-crap pass me by once it became a thing).
    And i too would prefer an actual newspaper; no links, no clickbait, no going here and there, just the news.

    No, we don't. We're all dead, but some of us are too slow to have realized it yet.

    Sounds like a plot for a Final Fantasy game.

    Don't have a phone book...or want one. But I love my newspapers. I read several, and I like the ability to look as deeply into any story as I want, or for less interesting ones to just read the first paragraph or two. I don't like having my news packaged up and spun by talking heads. Having multiple newspapers with different political preferences allows me to look for something closer to an unbiased view, by comparing the reporting and the op-ed pieces against each other.

    Pish-posh! Long past retirement age, but I still get up at 5:00AM 6 days a week and go to work...because I like to. And then follow that up with several nice pints at the local pub afterwards, and I'm a happy old fart.

    Sorry I didn't reply to this thread to sooner. I've been without a phone.

    The job is great. I like walking and i like newspapers. The bike ride there and back is rough, and the job is hard on my knees. it's disgusting how much papers we throw away though at the end of the day.

    I love the job though! it's great to be a productive member of society! :)

    yeah I actually lost my partner on the other side of the street who is much faster than me and he had the map, and I thought I should just go straight and I was delivering newspapers to the wrong houses and wound up in the wrong part of the city. Nobody knew how I got there when the van driver found me. And a bunch of houses that weren't supposed to get papers got papers
