    no_map_needed Knowledge is key, Experience is power.

    I would always check out what people ordered from Omaha Steaks walking the box up to the door, but this year we can't and it's leaving me with an empty feeling.

    Seems like there’s been a significant decrease in smoked turkeys as well.

    I don't read anything on any box except the address or apt number. I don't care what their name is or where it's coming from.


    Probably why I never learn any of my customers names.

    I used to also read the contents of the Omaha Steak containers on my way up to the delivery point.

    I knew we were missing something, I just couldn't tell what it was. I'm in an area where there would've been an absolute boatload of Omaha Steak packages too. Maybe we'll get lucky for Mother's day and lose the flowers by then.

    Yup. It’s just cardboard. Couldn’t care less what it is, and never even took a second to look.

    It's been a light peak for the most part for me. We have 4-5 routes running in my normal two-car loop plus a couple of PVDs. Good weather most days and lots of Amazon vans everywhere. I took a Code 5 twice this week and went home early.

    When I was a preloader, I always looked at the names, when I had my 1st route, I did too. Now, I hardly ever do.

    We lost Omaha Steak too? We lost Dick's Sporting goods as well
     
  20. Total package

    Total package We can rebuild him

    We’ll lose everything except Scamazon if something doesn’t change. We have drivers that have to tell their customers not to give us NDA because it won’t get back to the building early enough to make the plane
