I think everybody on my route knows where I park to eat lunch. Sue from the Lyons DPW told me they added that extra parking spot under the tree for me when they paved the lot b/c I always park there. That was nice.

As for the dam, I wished they had used explosives. That would've been cool to see something get blown up.
The guy in the excavator with the air-hammer attachment was busy for about a week knocking it out. Loud as hell, too.

So Tom, is this like real time updates on where your package is by following gps on your truck? Doesn't sound like a good idea allowing the public to be able to track ups trucks..

Yes, it is. It's one thing for management to follow us around...it's entirely a different animal if customers can. I guess they have to input a valid tracking number in order to access the mapping, so that'll help keep thieves away, but still......

Wow. That's a bad idea. Easy enough to order a cheap package from Amazon to get a valid tracking number.

I can see it now, call centers getting blown up if a package sits somewhere for to long. SMH

I doubt USP tracking will be in real time. Just like flight tracking.

What, do people really need to know exactly where and exactly when the frickin package is going to be on their front door step? Give me a break. They already have a system that tracks your "little snowflake package" and tells you that your package is out for delivery on the final day.
Sorry, rant over.

I would imagine there's a slight time delay, but its probably not much. The customer told me it was close to real time. He had watched his computer as the driver on Wednesday delivered to houses around his (while not stopping at his home with a pkg he was waiting for -- ugh). The little truck on the map followed the real one around.

Thieves already will follow drivers during Christmas, its a matter of us being aware of our surroundings and paying attention if we see a car more than once while we're delivering. A few years ago, two women in a blue Chevy Silverado made off with parcels from multiple homes in an area near me for almost a week before they were finally caught. Thieves will always find a way to thieve.....

Yes, some people do. Thats the world we've made.


I just enjoy seeing the smiles from my customers at this time of year when I give them their boxes. It helps regenerate the enjoyment I get out of my job.

On a brighter note related to my job:

The HS football team I've been celebrating for the past 3 months with my avi has made it to the state finals in their division for the third straight year!!!

We get to take the trek to Ford Field again next Saturday! Go Pirates!
