Fall is here, it's getting cooler, and the days are getting shorter. Just as we prepare for the colder times with heavier shoes, thicker tights, hoodies, and scarves (huge-lose-yourself-in-them-because-they-come-up-to-your-head scarves), we need to prepare for fall food deliveries.

I can't pretend I'm Mr. Thoughtful from Thoughtfulville, USA, population ME! It wasn't my idea it was Geri M's on a Facebook page where people notice things happening in Rochester, Minnesota.

"To EVERYONE who orders delivery. Now that it gets dark earlier and earlier every day, if you order something to be delivered PLEASE turn ON your outside lights so we can see your house number.

PLEASE PASS THIS ON"

I think that's a great reminder. I would love to add, "Everyone, please make sure you have an easy to read house number," but some developers seem heck-bent on making finding that number guessing game. So I won't add that.

I will say one thing tho...I think that guy in the picture up there is carrying empty pizza boxes. Just like when people drink coffee on cop shows...the cups are empty!

Let me know if I missed anything...

These suggestions aren't a surprise, but for centuries food delivery has been asking for us to help them out a bit. Maybe now is the time we start. PS - This is not for you, a good person that strives to be kind and attentive. This is for people like me, that forget. Or people that are mean. Or just people that need something to look at on the terlet.
