    For signature required packages, do you spell names correctly/accurately or do you spell phonetically?

    I get lazy and usually just guess. I screwed up a name so bad one time I was called into the office for it.

    The name was pronounced "shyter"

    It was spelled Schiter

    It was written in the board like this:

    name.png

    My guess was not remotely close:

    I just spell it out how it sounds. One time I realized I was spelling a customers last name horribly wrong for over 3 years because of how she said it with her accent.

    TheMachine Are you sure you want to punch out?

    Usually they are aware their last name is a [email protected] of a last name and spell it for me, after I give them the glance that signals your last name sucks.

    If they don’t, I say adios and put whatever I want in the diad.

  17. I give the customer my board and tell them to type their last name cuz I can’t read their scribble. And the people with the long long last names.

    On a signature required package with a difficult last name, I peel the PAL label off before the delivery and use that to type the name in. You can also type in the name from the address label. I have seen where other drivers typed in "Man or Woman" at a CIR stop.

    Right, if I saw a sig. req. ahead of time for some crap foreign name, I would print it out on the back of the del. notice pad and regardless of the name they signed that's what I entered.

    Not a big fan of customers punching buttons on my board. I had one customer who use to try and take my board from me to punch it in his name. I backed away like he was trying to grab my dong.
