    My Center had another driver robbed yesterday, the third one this year. In all cases, they were in back of the package car when somebody climbs in with a gun. They usually take the driver's wallet and cellphone, and they usually look for phones in the package car. We were told this morning to just get in the package car and drive off, don't get caught sorting anywhere. We have several apartment complexes we no longer go into, a common denominator.

    Are robberies up everywhere?

    It was worst last year. Heard they even robbed a gold cart helper.

    Was his bulkhead door open while he was in the back sorting?

    Down here it's mid 90's with heat index of 107. You can't sort down here with it closed in these temps.

    If it came down to being hot or being robbed I would choose being hot.

    If it came down to being at a job where I feared being robbed all the time or not, I'd find another job.

    Transfer to the BOG---we are hurting for drivers; however, you should know that you wouldn't come anywhere close to making $125K up here.

    You stay in the back of a closed truck here, and your heat-related death will preclude any concerns over being robbed.

    Dave have you been in the back of one when the heat index is 110 and high humidity?


    You could pass out in 10-15 minutes with no air circulation.

    Sort naked. I'm sure if a guy jumped in the back of the truck and saw some naked dude with 40 year old bush he would turn around and leave.

    Dave doesn't need to sort during the heat of the day.....he does it in the early morning while his truck is still in the building.

    Dave does not sort at any point during his day; however, when I am sitting at one of my drop boxes on a warm day, I have all of the doors open.

    I'm good down here, I live and deliver in Forsyth County, 11th fastest growing county in the US. The crime rate down here is pretty much non existent. One of the lowest counties in Ga for property taxes. I make 125k delivering long driveways and upscale neighborhoods without any fear to my safety.

    Life is good.
