    I was hoping this was going to be about boobies. Years ago after bitching about dim lights on my 800 and basicly getting told I didn't know what I was talking about I upgraded them myself with the best set I could find back then. I petty cashed them and installed them myself on route. It was so much simpler when we could petty cash stuff. I petty cashed a great flashlight also. I got called into the office for the flashlight but nothing was ever said about the headlights.

    I used to petty cash anything from phone calls (pay phones), brakefluid, windshield wash fluid, and on one occasion a meal when I was forced to wait 2 hrs., to help a driver who gave me 2 long as you had a receipt, it was paid for

    I petty cashed a $20 map book one time. Boss said no way, you need to pay it back. I said "sorry, the money is already turned in, if you want it back use the grievance procedure." Never heard another word about it. It also came in handy for flashlight batteries during peak.

    And you want them to swap lights

    I would say he would know about petty cash. Back then you could take cash out of your COD money and as long as you supposedly had a good reason and a receipt for what you bought it was ok to buy what you needed. As time went on they kept lowering the amount you could spend using petty cash (at least at my center they did). The last I remember it was limited to like 5 bucks which pretty much put an end to it. When UPS quit taking cash as a method of payment that killed it for good. I'm sure as with everything else at UPS the petty cash rules varied center to center.
