Brown (UPS) 1, Fedex 0 (or… Fedex Major FAIL)

I was sitting here at home working, and I spied a Fedex truck stopping in the street in front of our house. At first I thought he was just going to put something in our mailbox (is that “legal”?), but apparently he determined the package was too big to fit inside. I saw the driver get out of his truck and start to walk up our driveway – that is, until he saw Nikki, our super-friendly 2-year old border collie running toward him. Nikki veered off at the last second, and continued running away from him (that’s pretty much all she does is run) – BUT, the dude freaked out anyway, dropped the package, and high-tailed it back to his truck!

WTF? He left the package sitting in the driveway, where it could easily get run over and would be exposed to the heavy rains expected today. All because Nikki was running around maybe 75-100 feet from him. IAt least he could have done what the wimpy lady-postal-service-driver does, and just pull into the driveway and start honking the truck’s horn to get someone’s attention. At least then the package would be delivered safely.

Now, contrast that to the regular UPS (Brown) driver who has our subdivision’s route. Nikki loves him (Bandit not so much, but he’s far less threatening) because he’s established a relationship with her. He keeps dog bones in his truck, greets and pets her, and never has a problem making a delivery to our house. I’m willing to bet he has multiple dogs at home – probably larger breeds.

    Inexpensive Restaurants/eating Places On Michigan Ave And Jackson St In Chicago? My family is taking a trip to Chicago and we will be there for, like, seven hours at least. Only one day. Of course we will be hungry and are looking for cheap (like $5 a meal or order or whatever there is) food around lunch time.

      Wow, it's a little difficult to find out an inexpensive option, though there are really a lot of dining venues along the Michigan Avenue.

      Based on my knowledge, I recommend you to go to Shaw's Crabhouse. Dishes are cheap there and they got a very reasonable lunch menu. Well, you may have to pay around 40 dollars for a meal. But you'll get enough food for your family. Soups only cost 6-10 dollars each, salads are 5-6 dollars. They also got a number of cheap sushi options.
      Visit their website to check out the lunch menu
      http://www.shawscrabhouse.com/chicago/menu.shtml

      well, the Tam Popo Japanese Restaurant is also a nice option. They serve cheap appetizers (from 5.5 dollars to 12 dollars). This restaurant also provides lunch specials and lunch box which only cost around 12 dollars.
      Their lunch menu: http://www.tampopochicago.com/Menu.html#

      Since you're going to stay at Michigan Avenue for seven hours, you must have some time to spend after lunch. Why not try to explore this area. There are lots of places for your family to hang out. one of the hot spots is the renowned Water Tower. If you love shopping, then you will find a number of pretty nice stores.

      When I was searching affordable restaurants for you, I also found a page with much info about things to do around Michigan Avenue. Maybe it'll help you a lot. Check out it to see whether there are anything that interests you:

      Hope this info can be helpful. Have a good day!

    How Much Is Parking In Chicago Union Station’s Parking Garage? This parking garage is located kitty-corner to Union Station in downtown Chicago.
    Preferably long-term parking from a Thursday to Thursday (1 Week), either the day rate, or the total amount due. Also, is there a special entrance for long-term parking? Is long-term parking different than short-term, price-wise and parking location-wise? How secure is that parking garage?

      I only know these that are close to the station-

      517 W Jackson Blvd.
      (312) 322-0191

      550 W Jackson Blvd.
      (312) 663-1490

      320 S Canal St.
      (312) 786-0111

      320 S Clinton St.
      (312) 427-3898

      311 S Wacker Dr.
      (312) 408-8115

      525 W Monroe St.
      (312) 986-6855

      I put the phone numbers because the rates can change suddenly. If you need to contact the station, the number is (312) 322-4269. They could probably tell you which areas are safe. I rarely drive in Chicago. The station address is 222 S. Canal Street Chicago, IL 60606 in case you want to mapquest it.

      A Sanctuary city is where the city government turns the other way where illegals are concerned.

      In my opinion the Federal Government needs to do some serious A$$ kicking in these cities.

    This Girl On My Msn Keeps Saying She Wants To Be The First Black Notorious Serial Killer =/? She told me that when she turns 17 she’ll start killing males and leave the female gender symbol on their forehead. Now how do you deal with someone like that? I don’t think she’s kidding either. We’ve been talking to each other for years now.

    UPS TRUCK DELIVERY TIMES? I just got this…
    Doraville, GA, United States 04/16/2012 12:42 P.M. Arrival Scan
    Memphis, TN, United States 04/13/2012 8:04 P.M. Departure Scan
    my house is 10 mins from Doraville will I get it today? What times do the trucks go out for delivery…..

      No, you will not get it today. It arrived at the UPS distribution warehouse today. It will be sorted tonight and put on the delivery truck. You will probably get it tomorrow. Tuesday morning it should say “out for delivery”. And, no, you can’t go to the warehouse and pick it up today. It is in a pile of thousands of other boxes.

    Driving A United Parcel Service Stick Shift Delivery Truck? I need answers from experienced UPS Package drivers only. Im a part time supervisor, and they plan on making me a driver shortly. My company told me to practice by showing up on a Saturday when there isn’t anyone around, hop into a package car and drive around. Now I have experience driving a stick shift car, but not a UPS Delivery Package Car. What are the steps in starting the package car? I know its clutch down and brake down, then turn it on. Need tips on shifting, some Package cars shift differently than others.

      Same as a car, except is larger and wider (Watch the right side of the truck so you don’t side swipe things) Trucks will have a floor shifted transmission of 4 or 5 speeds and shifting is in “H” pattern. Most trucks will have a dashboard decal showing the shift pattern. Please note that most trucks do NOT have a synchronized transmission. You’ll be grinding gears at first, but once you get the hang of it it will be a piece of cake.

      While UPS may frown on this practice, once you’ve become accustomed to driving a truck you can learn to shift without using the clutch once the truck is moving. It’s an “ole” truck driver trick to keep your legs from cramping .

      Depends, i’d call it a Pick up truck but at work I say to customer “OK I’ll send the delivery truck to pick it up” or id just say truck…. why does it need to be explained as more then just a ‘truck’?

    AP Physics Help! A Delivery Truck Travels 20 Blocks North, 17 Blocks East And 19 Blocks South.? A delivery truck travels 20 blocks north, 17 blocks east and 19 blocks south. What is its final displacement from the origin? Assume the blocks are equal length.
    Magnitude
    ___ blocks
    Direction
    ____?? (counterclockwise from east is positive)

      Draw a picture for yourself to make it easier.

      so let’s pretend the blocks are 1m long each. that means the truck travels 20m north, 17m east and 19m south. Now draw three vectors in head to tail orientation. so what i mean is draw an arrow with magnitude 20 and faced north, connect the head of that vector with the tail of the vector with magnitude 17 and faced east. then connect this second vector with the final vector that has magnitude 19 and faced south. so now you should have three vectors and it almost makes a rectangle.

      now we want the displacement, all that means is add the vectors. since we already have the magnitude of the vectors: 20, 17 and 19. we just need to add them with respect to the coordinate system that you get to choose. the most simple way to do it is to set north and east positive.

      now we have displacement = +20m +17m – 19m = 18m. So now we have our total displacement and we know that it is in the positive direction. But there is a problem, if you look at the drawing of the truck’s path, you will see that it goes up 20m to the side 17m but it comes down only 19m, that means that there is 1m difference between the first vector and the last vector, which also means that the total displacement is at an angle.

      Don’t be scared of the angle it just means that our displacement is not perfectly east. it is a little to the north. so we need to find that angle. It is a little to the north because our last vector is only 19m and not 20m, so to connect the displacement vector to the 19m vector it would be an angle to the north east.

      to find the angle: we know that the displacement vector is 18m and we know that the width of the rectangle if we were to complete it would be 17m. so that means we have 2 sides and an angle in between, so we use cosx, where x = 17/18. because if we were to complete the rectangle, we would find that the displacement vector of 18m makes a triangle that has a 90 degree angle and the 18m vector is the hypotenuse and the 17m vector is the adjacent.

      cosx = 17/18
      x= cos^-1 (17/18)
      x= 19.2 degrees.

      therefore the magnitude is 18 blocks 19.2 degrees.

    A Delivery Truck Travels 15 Blocks North, 23 Blocks East And 18 Blocks South.? A delivery truck travels 15 blocks north, 23 blocks east and 18 blocks south. What is its final displacement from the origin? Assume the blocks are equal length.

      This should be a simple a problem. All you have to do is set up a triangle.

      The truck travels 15 blocks north and 18 blocks south, that means that the truck travels 3 blocks south:

      15 blocks north+18 blocks south= -3 block north=3 blocks south

      The truck travels 23 east.

      Now set up a triangle,

      The triangle will have a height of 3 and base of 23.

      To find the magnitude of displacement, use the pythag.

      3^2+23^2=c^2
      C=23.19

      So the truck is 23.19 blocks away from the starting point.

      Now to find the direction, you will need to use basic trig:

      so tanx=height/base, x=tan-1(height/base)=tan-1(3/23)=7.43 degrees

      Remember that the net travel was in the south direction, therefore the direction will be -7.34 degrees.

      So the final displacement is:

      23.19 blocks [-7.34 degrees]

    How Late Does The UPS Delivery Truck Run? I ordered a package 2 weeks ago, and finally the Ups tracking page says its out for Delivery as a 6:20 am Eastern Time in Louisville. I live about 30-45 minutes from Louisville and it still has not arrived as of 4:30 pm today. Will it come or will I have to wait another day?
    I’m fairly ticked off right now, as I have used FedEx before and my package was at my doorstep around Noon, when it was out for delivery. I just used Ups because I got free shipping from the website I ordered on. So somebody just leave an answer. Get some free points I guess

    The Credit Purchase Of A Delivery Truck For $4,700 Was Posted To Delivery Trucks As A $4,700 Debit And To Acco? The credit purchase of a delivery truck for $4,700 was posted to Delivery Trucks as a $4,700 debit and to Accounts Payable as a $4,700 debit. What effect would this error have on the trial balance?

    Can someone explain why the answer is 9400$??

      How it was posted
      Dr Delivery Trucks 4,700
      Dr Accounts Payable 4,700

      How it should have been posted
      Dr Delivery Trucks 4,700
      Cr Accounts Payable 4,700

      So instead of adding (credit) to accounts payable, the amount was subtracted (debit). That’s a difference of $9,400

      Example
      Correct
      10,000 + 4,700 = 14,700
      Incorrect
      10,000 – 4,700 = 5,300

      The difference is 9,400

      This should be a simple a problem. All you have to do is set up a triangle.

      The truck travels 15 blocks north and 18 blocks south, that means that the truck travels 3 blocks south:

      15 blocks north+18 blocks south= -3 block north=3 blocks south

      The truck travels 23 east.

      Now set up a triangle,

      The triangle will have a height of 3 and base of 23.

      To find the magnitude of displacement, use the pythag.

      3^2+23^2=c^2
      C=23.19

      So the truck is 23.19 blocks away from the starting point.

      Now to find the direction, you will need to use basic trig:

      so tanx=height/base, x=tan-1(height/base)=tan-1(3/23)=7.43 degrees

      Remember that the net travel was in the south direction, therefore the direction will be -7.34 degrees.

      So the final displacement is:

      23.19 blocks [-7.34 degrees]

    What Schedules Do The UPS Delivery Trucks Follow? Let me clarify: I’m asking about the local area delivery trucks, the last step in delivering it to your house. My specific question is: Do they have two “shifts” of delivery drivers? or do they load up one truck early in the morning and that truck spends all day delivering (9am to 7pm)?

      The ones that deliver to us have their truck loaded in the morning and start their routes, they also pickup packages as well and if they finish their routes they sometimes can go back and deliver more if needed…..
