Dismiss Notice

Hi Guest. I just wanted to let you know that there will be some service disruptions here over the next few days. We're moving to a new server on Monday and then the latest version of xenforo is going to be installed. ~ cheryl

    Cradle utilization. They've even started posting the daily numbers on the center door. Gotta make those metrics, or else! I'd settle for the darn things to work properly. Loose connections, not working, sporadic successfulness.

    The best part was when someone in the PCM asked are we still required to keep DIADs behind the bulkhead going to & from center? No, now we're telling you to use the cradle! It's not distracted driving when you're instructed to do it.

    Back when Rod and I were pups, we didn't have to worry about getting chastised for excessive backing. I think even if I were driving now, I'd have to take the heat for backing. Knowing how UPS judges accidents, I'd never put myself in a position to be blamed for a fender bender, no matter what the rules say. I took this grab from my dash cam. Driver could have used a large driveway to this business, but chose to park right after a blind curve in the road. I presume to prevent a back. Car came around the curve, possibly speeding, almost hit the rear of the PC, and had to swerve in my lane. If he had hit the PC, do you think it would have been an avoidable accident?

    When those kind of accidents happen all of a sudden it’s “you should have gone in driveway” ...the driver will always lose

    Don't back, but follow Orion which tells you to back.

    It's not the drone who gets in trouble, it's the driver.

    This job is great when you stop giving a :censored3: about their numbers, and management realizes you don’t give a :censored3: about their numbers.

    We currently don’t have a flavor of the month because we have a huge influx of new, poorly trained drivers that have been trained on Orion, and they don’t know what the hell they're doing out there.

    been noticing a lot of 1 number off... the spa label will say “101 @IVE GOTTA PACKAGE 4U drive” whenever the real address is “102 @IVE GOTTA PACKAGE 4U drive”

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

    Instructed to keep the diad in the back? That’s the first I’ve heard of that

    Because people just follow the directions. That on some routes suck.

    Also when you do things that make people robots and shut their brains down lots of little mistakes happen because they’re no longer engaged.
