    Was in one of my highrises doing pickups. UPS dude was using a handcart with no tub and dropped the frickin envelope down the shaft. He was freakin out and shiitte. What will happen to him? Just curious. Was funny as hell though.

    He'll be fired!!!

    Honestly, probably nothing will happen. Shipper will need to resend whatever the package was, and the driver will put envelopes in totes from now on.

    I bet elevator mechanics find lots of treasure at the bottom of the shaft from this kind of thing. Rings, keys, money, condoms, who knows?

    You used the words shaft and condoms almost together but had nothing to do with each other.That is almost poetic!

    It is more sophomoric than poetic.

  11. I did that twice as a rookie. Things happen! Never got in any trouble over it.

    How would you sheet something like that? I don't recall seeing a "fell down elevator shaft" option available.

    Once I dropped a NDA letter down a crack between the front door and a deck. It was under deck where I couldn't get to it. I went back later in the day after my other airs were off to help the customer get it out.

    Beat me to this. Always watching out for those deck gaps. Don't know how many pens I've lost over the years.

    I use the time I spend in elevators to empty my pockets of any trash that I may have picked up along the way.

    Believe it or not it's not hard. I've had lots of stuff fall out of the cab of my moving truck and bounce along side me on the pavement as I drove.

    The other way would be if you are carrying a stack of light boxes and have the diad on top. It could easily slip off as you're getting out of the truck and fall in the drain. Around here there are just grates that the water goes through

    , but the other design for storm drains is where there is a cutout under the curb [​IMG]where you could physically throw something in the drain that wouldn't fit through a grate.
