    I get paid by the hour so if they want me to do it my way I will;

    if they want me to follow their maps, their Orion, use a crystal ball or use a stick to do a little dousing , it's all the same to me.

    if they give me 8 hours or 12 hours dispatch, I just do it one stop at a time , safely and at a fair pace. they never hear any complaints from me so when I hear them complain TO me about something I just brush it off and give my Mona Lisa smile clearly emitting my ambivalence to their silliness.

    Had to ask for directions for 1/4 of the stops on a route few weeks back.


    They asked if I forgot I didn't know the route. I said you assigned me to the route did you forget?

    Look in the cabinet of the center office. Lots if maps under the pile of pens and sheet clips.

    Thats fine; the first time my “Dynamic ORION” tells me to go up a tractor path thru the middle of a vineyard that mistakenly shows up on the map as a marked road....I will work as directed, bury the truck up to the axles in mud, and then call the center to await further instructions. I get paid the same either way...

    Most of the maps in our center are from around 1995-2000. I've pulled out a few, seen the copyright, then put them back.

    I just wonder what some of these kids now would do if they only had a cardfile to get them through the day.

    The courthouse is always a good source for maps.

    Nothing there. The last county map I could find online was 2008. It was discontinued and not available for sale.

    I covered and bid on a lot of rural routes and depended on cardfiles.

    I often try tourist information booths and real estate offices.

    I used Google maps as a better than paper map. These morons using turn by turn directions are a different story though.

    Some idiot might think that's creative. Probably is hiding from his wife in the basement watching a black and white tv.

    The courthouse will always have plat books. Expensive but the most detailed maps you'll find.

    Rural post offices, carriers, general stores and volunteer fire companies.

    I'll tell you what man the post offices i have tried to get maps or even directions from lately have been completely worthless.

    We had one like that. New postmaster didn’t want to play nice.

    He had all his packages sent to his PO box. After we sent half a dozen or so back, he came around.

    Problem now is these post masters are shipped all over to cover vacations and get their hours in since many are only open 4 hours a day.


    Can't tell you how many times I've heard. Man I drove 45 miles to get here. I'm only here this week. I've got no idea.
