When I was in preload, I think I had that package. Man, did It stink!!!. I kept throwing it on the bottom belt just so I wouldn't have to smell it all morning long. I'll bet you the whole building remembers that package.A few years ago, back when we accepted cash for COD's, a senior driver had a NDA , COD, cash only pkg with a 10:30am commit. He attempts delivery and of course, consignee is a NI 1. Driver continues his dailey routine and the weather is hot as heck. Later in the day, driver notices that this pkg is leaking. As the day goes on, this pkg is leaking worse and he puts pkg in a DR bag and gives it to the clerk at end of day as a damage. Clerk opens the DR bag and a rotten smell fills the air. Clerk opens the pkg to find snake meat that was not on ice!
This was a little awkward; Last summer, somone ordered crickets, they came in a box with a special netting. They were in my package car on Thursday. I attempted delivery but I couldn't DR due to circumstances, so on Friday they were NI 2, and Monday they were dead, customer was home and refused them.
When preloading I got a box of rotten meat being returned from a specialty store. Put in a DR bag and stuck it under the belt. This driver had a keen sense of smell and hated anything with an odor, including yankee candles or perfume. He smelled that mess soon as he hit the dock and had a fit about it being his. Oh, he was the funniest and best driver I ever loaded for and kept me in stitches with his rants.
Warning to crabby drivers: although I never did it, have heard of those cricket boxes getting a hole poked in them prior to loading.
