    Re: What's the best bluetooth headset?

    I keep mine in the drink holder as well because it would just get knocked off my belt or fall out of my pocket. I can't wear a watch for the same reason. Handling boxes while wearing a watch just doesn't work for me.

    Agreed!
    Wallet in the pants while delivering equals a pain in the back at days end.
    It took me a few years to figure that one out. My wallet goes into my lunch box when I put it in my cab in the morning.

    A wallet in the back pocket is the number one cause for sciatic nerve damage in males. Combine that with bouncing in a P500 seat and you have a damaged nerve or depleted bursa that haunts you the rest of your life. I now carry my thin front pocket wallet with very few necessaries.

    I have a Jabra JX10 that I barely ever use. It is an awesome headset though and very tiny.

    As far as a wallet, Monday-Friday, it stays in my backpack. On the weekends it is my front pocket. Of course I don't carry a big honkin' wallet llike most of you probably do. I carry one just big enough to carry two credit cards and my driver's license. And cash is held seperate. Note: you should always carry stuff in your front pockets since it prevents pickpockets from getting your stuff.

    The first month of running feeders I started to loose the feeling in my little fingers on Tuesday or Wednesday. One of the old timers asked why I was massaging my little fingers at a turnaround point. I told him my fingers were numb and he quickly told me to quit sitting on my wallet. Within a day the feeling returned to my fingers and I never kept my wallet in my pants pocket again.

    Later when I bumped into package the sup that was training me asked why I kept my wallet in my right shirt pocket and I told him my story. He quit sitting on his wallet and within a week his back problems went away too even as a sup sitting in the office. Back then there were no jump seats for the helpers or riders.

    The very first time I went to a chiropractor one of the first questions he asked was, "Do you take your wallet out of your back pocket while you are driving?". Now I can't hardly stand carrying it in my pocket.

    I have never heard of it effecting the hands or fingers, but I sure believe it. That one little nerve seems to go EVERYWHERE. I have a hard time with folded handkerchief in my back pocket at times. I guess I should get a back pack to use, that would get me more room without stuff in my front pockets.

    Hmm, I usually drive with my George Costanza wallet in my back pocket. I have the usual aches and pains. I'm going to try carrying the wallet in my backpack and see what the result is.

    Good tip.

    In a nutshell, ( I just caught my pun).
    If it is big in the front, no problem.
    If your pants are filled big in the backside,
    you got a problem.
