    ”Hey Boss, I’ve got a great idea. Let’s introduce a battery sucking app, that no one will use, right before peak!”

    “Great idea, Johnson! You’re going places with this company.”

    I drove back into the building to tell them my DIAD battery died. They sent me back out and I ran out of hours and brought back 18 stops.

    Asked me why I didn't call. Told them if I called them on "MY" cell phone the battery might die and I might need it in a emergency. From then on I deliver the stops and tell them when it died and they put them into the DIAD themselves because they know I'll take 3 hours to type them in myself. :)

    Try it sometime, it's fun getting on the office phone to tell the On Car that's why he should be in the office for when problems like this happen. :)

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Batteries can run a car 250 miles but ups won't buy batteries to last a full day.


    Makes sense

  5. They have new DIad holders that charge them up now. We don't have them here yet , hopefully we get them before peak.

    I haven’t had a problem so far, but I don’t use that map thing.

    Boss- "any other golden ticket ideas, Johnson?"

    Johnson- "Orion is such a great program, let's only let them view their routes in Orion Delivery Order."

    Boss- "BRILLIANT!!!"

    It's not even in a convenient place to look at it while driving.

    Now you have a map that shows you how to get to your next stop---DAMN----have I told you lately how tough we had it? I used to laugh at the idea that UPS would replace drivers with robots but you guys really are in trouble.

    Its not anywhere close to killing the battery like the radio does. When my DIAD gets to 20% I turn the radio off.

    The person who thought of this idea probably doesn't work for UPS anymore. It makes too much sense.

    We've go them at my center. They do a good job of keeping the charge. I came back at 8:30 the other night and still was at 100% battery
