    Malicious, wanton destruction of company property is a terminable offense.
    Covering the orifice of a beeper with a piece of electrical tape to reduce the volume from “ear splitting air-raid siren” down to “moderately annoying” is not.
    Hypothetically speaking, of course...

    The mechanic will remove it at PMI and report tampering. The center manager should be interested his/her drivers have time to tamper with "safety" features on the clock.

    I find a thin package and place it under my handtruck when its locked in the back. that extra 2" helps keep the BANG BANG BANG sound of the handtruck shifting when I make those sharp turns at 30mph

    If you have one of the new DIAD cradles, you have probably already figured out that it is a pain in the ass to remove the DIAD due to the poorly designed catch on the back. Rather than give yourself a case of carpal tunnel, simply wedge some delivery notices in front of the backboard to defeat the catch. One more thing: the USB port only works while the DIAD is in the cradle and the engine is on but it will keep a Blutooth speaker fully charged. If you try to charge a cell phone it will show an error message on the DIAD but it will still work to charge the phone, you will just be unable to view the map.DC56AF7A-5AB5-41EF-81FC-B131D105BC9D.jpeg

    instead of having a large flashlight, i have a small led, that i have on a lanyard around my neck, never forget to take it home, when extremely cold, body heat keeps it warm, and it will light up house numbers 100yds away,,if only i could read the things at that distance. also has adjustable beam, so i can quickly go to floodlight. hands free when handling pkgs.

    i just have an extra rag or two within reach, and if you are in cold snowy weather i have a extendable snowbrush/ice scraper stashed above the visor area

    IDK if its a hack but, if you have multiple consignees at one address (like a mall or bldg), hit the letter Z. It will break them down by name and not address. I had to find that out by accident ( a while back now) and came to realize that I was the only one who knew about it. Not even the sups knew about it... why am I not surprised. Oh yeah Trader Joes dog treats, they are like crack for dogs. They will love you forever....but don't run out haha

    Seems like a lot of hoops to go through to put a box on a porch.

    If the green light on the diad comes on with a message to take stops from another Driver, just reply back: "No compendre, no speak English!"
    They would be amused by that response?

    Works great for malls. But it seems not everybody has that version of software. It doesn’t work everywhere.

    The new DR bags are garbage but I think yanking a bunch out of the middle and placing the old DR bag school through there will work out just fine. For a while anyway.
