    Hello Brown Starbucks employees,

    I have a friend named Jeb who recently received a promotion from unloader to package car driver. He's a very fair-complected fellow, so it's not well for him to be out in the sun for such long hours. In relation to this, I should also mention that he's Amish. He'd heard from a friend at work that this site was a good resource for employees with inquiring minds, so he kindly asked that I defer to you all for answers on this matter. Being that he's Amish, there is a sworn tenet to uphold against using technology. He wanted to know if it was possible for a religious accommodation to be made so that he could be excluded from having to use the DIAD to complete stops since the DIAD, as you all know, is a robust article of tech. He wanted to know if he could use paper and pen/cil to record his stops like you all did 30 some odd years ago. Granted, this would drastically shorten his stop count, but God has to come first. Thanks in advance!

    I still have paper delivery records in my locker that I will donate to Jeb. 50 packages per page, no markovers!
    He is also welcome to park his horse and buggy next to my F150.

  4. How is he going to drive the package car if he is against technology?

    At least he can grow a beard now. He could work a golf cart route and use a horse and buggy instead.

    You all make very striking points. I'm just going to tell him to be a PVD instead that way he can deliver from the sanctity of his horse-drawn wagon and talk to his helper management team about recording those stops on his notepad that he uses in place of a cellphone anyway.

    Makes about as much sense as a bunch of white boys, that have never had shave bumps in their lives, get approved for shaving waivers. :rofl:

    Wavers-----people who stand outside of Liberty Tax offices.

    Waivers-----forms releasing any and all liability.

    Are drivers still submitting paperwork for shaving waivers ?

    In my Local, you only need to know one word.... to grow a beard.

    Your "friend " religious accommodation would create too much undue hardship for UPS. Tell him to find a new religion

    Yep. As long as there is a waiver on file that’s all they care about.
