I don't ring doorbells, hurts my bonus
"Drop, knock, go."
The least amount of customer interaction is best. —my old supervisor
I don’t ring door bells unless I know there is no dog and an attractive woman lives there.
What if there is an attractive dog?
Depends on the size....
I ring doorbells, and if I hear someone inside, I wait until they open the door and I hand them the package. I also drive the speed limit and don't work off the clock. Coincidentally, I had 60 stops Friday. Wonder why.
'Cuz you're a slug?
Never been call a slug during a "safety ride". Nice try, Nancy.
I thought UPS taught the "new" method....
Stop, drop, and roll.
Knocking, ringing the doorbell, and announcing “UPS” at residential stops helps reduce theft and damages by the elements. I can’t announce UPS all day, especially on a dense residential route, without coming home sounding like I chain smoked for 90 years straight. I typically don’t touch security system doorbells, such as Ring, Nest, etc., because I refuse to talk to people through their doorbell and listen to some of the BS they spew through them.
I do knock and ring normal doorbells at each and every house though unless the customer instructed otherwise. It only takes like a second and a half tops. Only bonus babies and people that are scared to death of being ridiculed for their numbers have a problem with doing that.
I don't ring or knock unless I need a sig. I'm sick of being yelled at by so jackass that thinks I should have rang the bell instead of knock or the other way around.
Actually he is following the methods amd working safe
dont wanna talk to people, hear their life story nor their problems. don't want to lug package up stairs or put in garage. dont wanna come in for a drink or milk and cookies.
less contact the better.
if they open door i say hi , gotta go see ya next time and keep walking away.
When did "feeder drivers" start making residential deliveries?
I always liked talking to my customers but then again I'm a friendly kind of guy.
When you are in a route long enough you get to know the people
I dreaded the house where people were always home.
