    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    I once ran out of tape halfway through taping the bottom of a package. No spare rolls on the car. Set the package to the side and finished taping it when I got back to the center.

    Never use one; I'm faster with a roll of tape and a box cutter.

    I'm sure you have noted that concise brevity is my strong suit.

    I had someone hand me a Dish Network box that was poorly packed and held together with scotch tape and chewing gum. No need to waste my tape...

  8. I had a customer that threw away the Dish box and put the RS tag directly on the unit.
    Customer wasn't very happy when I said no I can't take it.

    I just toss those in the back.

    I picked up a Cheggs box from a drop box that had been stepped on in order to fit in to the box. Tossed that along with the others in the back.

    What tape gun? They just hand you a roll of tape and expect you to use your teeth

    Don't use teeth or a box cutter...

    I use a pen

    Pull the tape tight ~then use the ball point pen to break the tape! Simple as that.

    I get over 70 furniture with scotch tape and I just say to myself "if you feel that's good to go then so do I ".
     
  13. Tape gun: Mythical object made from the Leprachaunn gold at the end of the rainbow, then is carried by a Unicorn on its horn to the Misty Mountains (or Dispatch Office) and guarded by a bejeweled Dragon (that mysterious pt sup who resides in the dispatch office after all the employees are out of the building). The Tape Gun is never touched, and never will be because the Dragon has no other purpose (except to also hoard the actual tape) and will never retire.
     
  14. I have two. One in my truck and one in my locker

    You never know when a girl might need to tape something down. Always be prepared. ;)
