Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat, please put a penny in the old man's hat... if you haven't got a penny, a ha'penny will do... if you haven't got a ha'penny, then God bless you!
We love Dallas sports teams. If you are one of our loyal blog readers, this should come as no surprise. We are always blogging about whatever teams are playing, and in case you've been living under a giant rock... football is back!! You know what we also love about football season, we often get to handle Dallas deliveries including Dallas Cowboys football tickets!
We have quite a few diehard Cowboys fans at Dallas Courier. They sport their Romo jerseys often, and I imagine that quite a few will be going out this weekend to buy Ogletree jerseys (I know I will be!).
It is upon us. The week of the Olympic Games. On Friday, the world will collectively hold it's breath in anticipation for the opening ceremony. People will carry their country's flag with pride. All team members will be uniformed in matching garb. There will be smiles. There will be tears. There will be cheers. There will be pride. All of the hopes, a compilation of years and years of work, will come alive in the opening ceremony. From the coaches to the athletes to the parents to the spouses to the children - everyone is on the edge of their seats. People are hoping for a fantastic show. People are wanting to hear stories of perseverance, overcoming unbelievable odds, passion, and talent. We want to see perfect floor routines, lightning fast runs, nail biting sand volleyball matches, and impressive shotputs.
It only happens once every four years. It is the accumulation of lifetimes of determination, persistance and passion. It is a time when the world comes together. It is about being the best in something. It is about standing on the podium with a gold medal around your neck, your country's anthem playing loudly. It is rare, special, inspiring.
Consequently, it is the time of year that Dallas Courier's blog suddenly becomes single-minded: The Olympics. If you're not an Olympic fan, I apologize because starting July 27, you are likely to be inundated with all things London 2012.
Dallas Courier boasts a lot of father's on our team. We have dad's with toddlers, teens, adults and everything in between. We even have quite a few teammembers who have stepped up to the plate and been a father to children (and adults) who either don't have living fathers or who have father's unwilling to invest in their lives.

What does your to-do list look like today? Let me guess... wake up after hitting snooze one too many times; get coffee into system ASAP; try on three outfits before choosing one; get in the car and realize you need gas; rush to the gas station and get just enough to make it to work; arrive to work and check voicemails; answer as many emails as possible; work furiously; look up at the clock and realize you worked through lunch; panic when you notice that daily drop off to your client is due in 2 hours; work furiously again; get in car to make the delivery yourself since you haven't called any courier companies in Dallas; drive fast; get pulled over; get a ticket you won't be reimbursed for; finally make it to the client's office (15 minutes late); make drop-off; get stuck making small talk for 22 minutes; get back in your car and realize it's almost 5:00 and there's no point in heading back to the office.
Question: What do these things have in common: Limousine, Champagne, Tuxedo & Ascot?
What I am about to say may be hard to believe. So hold onto your hats. Industries operate differently in different seasons. Profound, eh? No, but I’m being serious here. I have plenty of clients here at Dallas Courier who have super busy times and then super slow times. There are months when these clients need daily route deliveries Dallas, and there are months when they don’t need a single delivery made.
