Can you fish in your breaks if you don't go off area?
Hell yes you can.
Do you think they would try to get me for unauthorised package (fly rod)?
Better to get some afternoon delight.
They would have to go on a seriously stupid fishing expedition to find something wrong with that. Just watching you walk in in a he morning with your fishing pole would be enough for me to respect you. We used to have a guy that brought his banjo in everyday to play on his lunch and breaks. The shock value to ups management was priceless.
I take a nap in a hammock sometimes
Hammock is in my bag. Little camping one.
Oh and one of our old CMs would hang out at the pool at a hotel on his inch when he was a driver. Change to swim trunks and all
Yep. Sups have always told me go do whatever you want on lunch break just secure the vehicle.
Never got to fish on meal when I was a PC driver. I did however pick a lot of dewberries and go to garage sales.

-my first center manager
I had a 3 day lock in ride in May, since then I have went from a new automatic 800 to a old standard 1000! I lost a lot on that alone! Then 3 weeks after my lock in ride, Orion was implemented in our center. So my SPORH have went down & I was called into the office this morning by my OC & he told me he was riding with me again on Wednesday, & told me if I hit the SPORH that I did in May that he was going to terminate me! My question is can they do this & what are my rights in this?
I keep a notebook of all the variables on my route, so they don't pull any bill crap .
How bad are your stops per hour off?
Had three lakes on my old delivery route. Was satellited so I didn't have to bring the fishing rod or bait through the guard shack. Would fish most days in the spring through fall when the weather cooperated. Had many residential customers offer their pier and a couple actually would offer their boat if desired.
We have a guy that brings in his fishing pole everyday.
Fish on brother, fish on! I just find it hard to fish with out a cooler of beer. Back when I was young I'd play basketball with whoever was at a court. Then they couldn't beat me. They never came back. Now I'm too old for games.
Be prepared to file a grievance for harassment (Article 37) and for an extra contract agreement (Article 6). You should also file a grievance for already being harassed for when you were threatened with termination related to a "production" issue.
My buddy got suspended for this one time. He was literally a 1/2 block off his route, they wrote him for excessive mileage. Just be sure the lake is on your route I guess.
Biggest peice of ever invented lol
Do you have a 3 peice fly rod that fits into a tube? I know orvis fly rods come in a very nice tube about 3ft long. They are nice enough nobody would question what it is, however if you prefer a 4ft 6 ultralight would be good, I'd bring it in and put it in the truck after I got back to the center one afternoon. If you bring a lunch box or backpack you could but hooks, sinkers, lures and ect in there. Goodluck!
