    Stupid-stupid. How can you set a time limit on washing trucks? Some days they are dirtier than others. They still wash trucks?

    My Forest Park Hub doesn't have a real Car Wash. The other four Atlanta hubs do have one but UPS doesn't care what it's fleet on the Southside looks like. Bent fenders, busted hoods, bare metal scrapes all the way down the frame rails, car numbers and logos worn off. My package car might get rinsed off twice a year if I'm lucky. I have to carry a bottle of window cleaner if I want to see out of my windows. Safety last.

    You can check the oil but aren't allowed to add any until after New Year.

  12. P10 gets 15 minutes each. Of course, that's only for exterior without using soapy water and a brush on the rims.
    Heck, if the lug nuts are rusty it probably doesnt mean they may be loose. Unless they are.

    IF you’re a driver... don’t wash unless it’s OT. Get that 8hr guarantee under your classification.

    Then let your wash/porter know that you washed your truck so they can file a grievance for missed wages if they get cut short any day that week.

    I’d say a good car washer should be able to sing his ABCs in about 15 seconds flat while on the job.

    I had a supervisor admonish me for washing my truck. He was big on safety. I told him that my wheels were dirty. "So" was his answer. I told him that in order to perform a proper pre-trip I have to check the wheels for running rust that would indicate loose lug nuts. I then asked him, " How can I do a proper pre-trip if I can't see my nuts?". He didn't have an answer. He just shook his head and walked away.

    Sweeper I need a bigger broom

    If you can’t see your nuts you’ve got bigger problems than dirty wheels.
