    At least they left your old diad holders, I played diad plinko for a couple of weeks dropping it through the hole where the missing one was.

  5. eats packages

    eats packages Low elevation homes, hoping for flood.

    I have a GM Johnson metro map book from one of the runner-gunners and it works 10 times better than mapnav or the manifest maps. Huge mistake not to bring it with me on my first qualifying trip and instead acted like a hotshot. Still am one, they're missing out lol.

    It’s a crutch that will screw them in the long run when the maps don’t work

    For years whenever there would be a new street someone would always throw those packages in my package car. For the last 6 months since we've gotten Map Nav I would sheet and DR on a different street a couple blocks away. I'd, then actually deliver it to the correct address. It screws up the Map Nav and the new drivers go absolutely crazy that its not correct.

    PASinterference Yes, I know I'm working late.

    Have fun never learning a route. Do yourself a favor and learn how to read a map. Bet you can't.

    I covered a few routes that had them. I actually threw out the one I had on my old route when I switched.

    I hope you have the worlds best dispatcher, because the cradle is definitely a hindrance in the blind with a bad trace.
    Give me rdo and google maps and I will know every shortcut and back alley in a week.

    Prick!

    When we got our first computer (for the kids), I built a database of my route that I could sort by name or RD number. I printed it out, and put it in a binder. Mostly, I just wanted to learn how to use the computer.

    My cover driver loved it, and would add notes for me when I was off. My center manager saw it, and asked if I could build one for every rural route in the building. Told him he couldn't afford it.

    I had an extensive one for my route and depending on how bad you burned me I would leave it for a vacation driver if they played by the rules. Skip your break-drive 90 mph-leave me with a bunch of send agains guess what. My card box would go home with me the next time.
