      How many do you think were on area at 7:30AM?

      A couple of summers ago I pulled up a 1700ft driveway and this guy who's about 60 was cutting his grass in the nude. The only thing worse than seeing a naked man is seeing a naked older man.

      I would stop delivering...call them and have someone come get you....ask them how they don't know the BOMB is on your package car...roll the dice with your life..they are masters of that!

      Stop delivering and say you hear ticking. When sups, bomb squat and police show up say "Ops, its just my watch".

      Surprised no centers evacuate when field line chalk boxes open. UPSers might think that is anthrax?

      Don't touch, leave the area, notify your account exec that the consignee at that address requested a shipper number. Sales leads are hard to come by.
