    I live about 10 min from my area and only attend a Group Meeting every other Thursday for supplies and a Safety Meeting. That's about 20 min from my house. Kind of miss the old days where we met every am at a restaurant and waited for the paper tickets to arrive. Sure felt more like a team back then. Oh well - Progress!

    Geez, LOL, after a few times of that happening, we figured out that clipping them to a clip board would hold most of them in place in case they hit the floor. Hubby used to put a dinosaur on top of his to hold them in the seat!

    What about laying completes on the dash and they blew out the window. Try explaining that to a fellow locator who just happened to pass by while you were scrounging them up.

    Funny story: Hubby was my trainer when I first started with his company. (Note: we were already together). I was in my first few weeks and got REALLY, REALLY aggravated one day. Called hubby and said, "I QUIT......THIS .......F.........JOB........... AND .......... YOU......... CAN........ DO ........THESE..........D..........TICKETS......... .YOURSELF.
    I probably had over 100 tickets, already in order, and I slung them through his truck window. He just smiled and waved bye. MADE ME SO MAD THAT I FOLLOWED HIM AND HE HAD THE LOCATE DONE IN LESS THAN 5 MINUTES.

    He used to tell me to listen to my locator, it would talk to me (Metrotech 810). I used to tell him the damn thing didn't speak my language!!!!! That was a very long time ago.

    I drive 70 miles to the office in the morning, and 70 miles back home in the evening.
