Photo365 - 282 - Yellow Pages

When I was young I took a job delivering Yellow Pages (telephone directory) in my spare time in the Wadsley area of Sheffield. I was paid something like 7p per book to deliver. and it helped fund my photography while I was working in retail. It was hard work, and for a week my parents house was full of Yellow Pages stacked high. but I delivered around 1000 books so I was paid 70 which, at the time, was about two weeks wages.

Today, while on a fungi forage in Laughton Woods on the annual D&D meet, I saw someone's efforts at delivering Yellow Pages. They will have been paid, but dumped them in the woods. Idle gits!
