    So, you got an extra 15 from the route next to yours. No problem, you tell yourself, I'll just cut down this road and get to it quick. Oh no (!), a friggin' school bus- stopping at each and every 200 feet! So much for fast! Makes your head want to explode!

    When it's 100 degrees and your taking a break, you have to click your fob key 11 times so you can keep the fan on.
    Stupidest thing ever !!!!!!!!!!!!

    In the winter, heater works the same way but I just let it idle the whole time.

    Making sure the route you are covering has a two wheeler. Then the first time you need it you find out it is chained and locked.

    Taking 10 stops off the guy parked next you in the morning because he whined that he had too much work. Then when you get back to the building, there is his PC, parked in its space, washed, fueled up and the engine is cold as ice. Grrrrrr.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    I was thinking the same thing....I've never seen fans in PC's....unless it was something the driver rigged himself.

    We had fans in all equipment down here in Texas. PC's, yard mules, even tractors if your AC was weak. Course it gets mighty hot down here. But it's not the heat, it's the humidity. lol.

    There are different names used for them, I guess it depends on what part of the country you're in.

    or....

    Take 10-15 stops off, finish, green light of death comes on, "Guy you took stops from is still screwed, go get more stops." Meet said knuckle dragger, pick up stops, including 2 stops that were RIGHT NEXT to stops already done. (I refuse to help that guy anymore.)

    The guy was on a fast track to supervision. I guess he figured the faster he got in everyday, the faster they would promote him. He was right. Got promoted shortly after, then made center manager. Got fired eventually. Good riddance.
