    depends on the business

    if you’re talking super-urban all vertical work, absolutely

    if you mean normal suburb business :censored2:, nah it’s better to just take the resi and acclimatize yourself

    I always reply, “I’ll have to GET cool before I can stay cool.”

    TheMachine Are you sure you want to punch out?

    I hate walking into cool places and realizing how soaked my shirt is, having it cool down and then being uncomfortable. Rather be hot and stay in my own hot mess, only getting out of the heat when I need to.

    I’d much rather UPS introduce AC or fans into their package cars like we all know is possible from a multi, multi billion dollar company. AC in the front and rig up a small fan for the rear when working in the back.

    Definitely resi. A lot of hot milfs in little clothing and asking if I need something to drink.:happy2:

    I'd prefer resi since when you know the area they come off so fast. Or maybe one of them high density apartment routes where the guys bitch about how bad it is to fight for elevators in the air conditioning.

    In any event the heat? The cold? C'est la vie.

    And the desperate milfs? Don't :censored2: where you eat no busted up slot is worth my career. I can meet them online anyway

    Neither.
    Country route with lots of windshield time.

    I would agree with you if it weren't for all the damn dust! I love country routes in the summer, but inhaling dust all day isn't worth it so I stick to in town routes anymore.

    It was 71° here today. Didn't have my windbreaker, got a little chilly. Might get up to the 90's by the end of the week, maybe.

    Dang sweet. It was well well over 100 today and I was brain dead halfway through. I can't drink enough water or eat enough salt, with Gatorade and v8 in between.

    Doing indoor business stops I'd end up chatting just a wee bit longer than normal, just to stand under that sweet AC. One of these tech whiz's need to invent an under armor AC suit. I'd pay a pretty penny for one

    230 stops? Must be a really tight area. I do that at peak with a helper.

    For years we had a route that would not be dispatched with over 65 stops.
    But you knew you would finish with 220-270 miles, and only one road in the county had a name.
    Everything was route and box number, some stops 12 miles apart. Fun times

    Those are the best routes (in the summer)

    I hated that route, piece of cake physically, would make you crazy though.

    As long as I got my bluetooth speaker and my phone for music and podcasts, I'm good to go.

    My bad....As long as I have my am/fm radio and some spare AAA batteries, I'm good to go ;)
