Why are driving while at lunch?
No, the warning that says "local rules blah blah blah gotta take your lunch within the next half hour." Maybe it's a regional thing
Must be I don't get a warning like that.
Homemade cooler - portable a/c, moves more cool air than those pricey ones...
After using it for a while, people realize it does almost nothing to reduce the ambient temp inside a van. Yes it will blow some cool air if pointed directly on you, but ice will not be effective at reducing the air temp surrounding you, neither inside the cab, nor the back end.
Follow up review...
Much more effective to dunk you head in a cooler full of ice water!
Now, a blower motor set up to expel the hot air in the back of the vehicle might help more.
I just back up to a dock with air conditioning inside, and use a fan to dump air inside and out the front of my truck while I sort the load.
Or find a windy spot, park sideways to the wind so the wind blows in one door (close the other) and out the back door.
You take your hour lunch from 10-11 because they gave you commits?
No he's saying he punched in for the day at 11:00
I keep my LED light that lights up half the street in my hazmat tag holder on the bulkhead.
You must be in Washington/NW Region. We won a lawsuit over lunches. Then they added that screen.
If you have the new diad cradle, make sure you have your board in it for the navigation back to the building. You don't get messages while it's in the cradle, so you won't be lying when you say you got the message to go help somebody when you were already back to the building.
Genius! Good looking out buddy.
Actually messages so come through and green light will flash intermittently. You just don't get the beep that comes with the message like it used to.
Actually even before the new Map Nav cradle I would simply keep driving. Mostly because I didn't let it distract me on the drive in and would check message when I got back to the building. Either way, they could tell if you activated DIAD to check while driving. I just chose to not to drive distracted. ;-)
If you put the dolly extension under the shelf it will not move
I just place a tote there and put any small pickup/send again pieces in it.
Wonder how your truck looks like, we have here in every Truck a separate space especially for carts.
Btw: cupholders of eternity
I've never seen a package car like that...
Mercedes Vario P Serie this is a small "P60" or short "P6er" We drive a P100
Funfact this little fella has a netto load capacity of 4.4t, that the highest of all UPS Trucks in the 7.5t roster
Your truck has a glove box? That's crazy, we don't have those in my building.
My supervisor just tells me to go back out and help. Already being back to the building means nothing. Well I guess it adds like an hour of driving to my day. So that's easy money.
And when space opens up on the floor on the other side for clerk work.
Separate names with a comma.
