When no one is home and there isn't a spot with a roof to leave the package, which is more important:
Dry packages? Or your success rate?

Toady I chose the latter when I saw a UPS package was already sitting there soaked.

Success rate is a mind game created by Amazon to make you believe you have to get as close to 100% all the time. In reality, as long as you're not below Amazon's cutoff for a driver, it doesn't matter at all. I'm sure 5% isn't a dealbreaker as the white van drivers routinely returns up to 5% of their daily packages.

I drove up to the warehouse and the new guy that was checking IDs said "It might rain today!" He handed me a brand new roll of 100 opaque trash bags. Without protest or any meaningful response, I thanked him and proceeded with pick-up and delivery of my route.

It didn't rain.

I haven't used a single god damn one.

But when I decide to stop using grocery bags for trash... oooh. I gotsabout two years worth.

Just ask a vest for bags. Or knick some if the vests are cheap dirtbags (looking at you in Vegas, Hydrophobe.

This is why you invest in buying plastic bags before having to deal with inclement weather.

No need to invest if you can just get it by the rolls from the station. I usually have a couple of rolls on hand. Just a couple of weeks ago, I see a box of rolls of the bags just sitting in the parking lot at the station. I guess the white vans took all they needed and left the rest behind.
