    The FDX Ground route near mine has had a large UHaul truck with two VERY SLOW fat chicks on it since right before last peak. I don’t know how they are able to finish the route at the speed they are walking. They park on the wrong side of the road too but the move out of the way when others need through.

    It’s more likely that we’ll stop accepting their volume first.

    Sweet Jesus I hope they don’t revert back to us. Or if they do it better be a deal that makes it worthwhile.

    Doubt it abney is an idiot. I'd compare him to the CEO of circuit city or HQ.

    But he has a rather special bunch of stockholders to answer to. And, for once, that might force his hand to make a good decision. It’s all about optics so he’ll likely opt out of Amazon long before they are capable of delivering all of their own stuff.

    Amazon requires all of their contract delivery companies to drug test their drivers. But I’m not sure what their policy is on criminal background.

    UPS doesn’t drug test us, unless we have a crash. I have heard of felons driving for us, at least a few convicted of non violent crimes.

    Those blue ‘Prime’ vans have AC and a radio. The van I got to check out had folding shelves in the cargo area. They’re all Mercedes vans but I guess they’re not all the same inside, especially the cargo area. Some have shelves but a lot of them don’t have anything. They load their vans up with bags crammed full of packages, emptying one at a time into the passenger seat.

    Not if it’s you and you accidentally back over your own stuff.

    I feel this way. No beards and no tattoos is very old fashioned. It’d be better if they had an approved list of facial hair styles. Funny that mustaches are acceptable when they are like the creepiest thing someone can have.

    About 25 years ago myself and my helper had the cops walk up with guns drawn to the window of our U-Haul while sitting in a driveway at about 9:30 during a peak. We had backed up to the carport(no one home)to drop some bulk. I was looking at a map for our next area. Seems a neighbor called in some suspicious activity. I dam near peed myself.
