I carry a similar loadout:

Swiss Army One-handed Trekker (Non-serrated) - for use as a blade and tool; I carry on my hip for ease of use. One-handed operation.

Smart pwn - for calls and shit.

Sunglasses - 2nd shift means sideways sunlight.

Average-ass ink stick and notepad - I'm a writer and sometimes my co-workers say some pretty rank stuff worth noting.

Minimag LED Pro+ - Brighter than my old Minimag LED; super bright for the money; I carry on my hip for ease of use.

Timex wristwatch (same model) - I set it to exact time so I'm never early getting to work.

Carabiner - goes on front belt loop for car keys; sometimes I take my housekeys off so it's quicker.

In the car:

Pens galore - just in case I forgot mine.

Car-mounted GPS - using my phone is a hassle; this device can be turned on and charged in my car, and is of quick use.

CB radio - The locals that talk on it are really funny and they help pass the time. I can also flick a switch and talk on a PA speaker under my hood to tell the little children to get out of my way when they're being retards in the street.


Most useful is probably the flashlight.

if this is your first delivery job make sure you get a good small flashlight and buy some good pens to keep in your car at all times. I also bought a mini clipboard for a few bucks and had the credit card receipts on it. It increased my tips by a lot because when someone didn't fill in the blanks I handed it back to them and told them "You need to fill out the entire receipt" and 80% of the time would add a tip. Also, countless comments of "Fancy/Convenient!" as it is hard to sign a receipt when you have to find somewhere to do it at.

If you drive a older car MAKE SURE you have:

  • a good jack
  • 1 full sized spare in the trunk (junk yard sells these for under $20)
  • lug wrench - it makes it much easier
  • jumper cables
  • rain coat/poncho

    use the maps as much as possible and use google maps in a pinch. This gets you used to learning the lay out of neighborhoods and what not as google maps just tells you where to go.

Google has produced the following suggestion:


It seems to be a shady market on the whole though so stick with something well-reviewed. Also, have you considered rigging your phone or an older one you have?

I would recommend checking out the Amazon Best Sellers Category as whole:

The ones mounted in rear-view mirrors seem the most practical to me.

Most actual millionaires drive common, paid off cars. Interesting read

Not to say your boss was a millionaire, he could have been a broke dumbass. But the perception that nice car = successful person was one sold to us by marketing execs. The reality for most people is nice car = big car loan.

Maybe something like this? Might not fall under the same issue as pepper spray... Though might not be effective against 100% of dogs (then again, pepper spray wouldn't be 100% either)

Only using Amazon as I've had it there in a wish list, as I've been pondering getting one, so it's easy to grab in my mobile. -

You should check out the garmin speak plus. It’s really comparably priced with other dash cams, but it’s really useful. Garmin Speak Plus

I use a check presenter and a G-2 for credit card receipts, it makes signing for credit cards so much faster and the customers ~90% of the time remember to clip the pen back to the presenter before handing it back.

This particular one, The Rexing V1 2.4" has G-Sensor, WDR, and Loop Recording. Though to be fair I really like the shape too.

Driver here, my advice buy a streamlight stylus pro.

These are more than adequate and rest assured you'll use it a lot.

With good service it's seldom necessary to question a guest's honesty. But standing up to an irate customer isn't something you should be expected to know by instinct.

I spent a lot of time in my first years as a manager going over and over in my head how to react to angry or frustrated customers. My bosses told me what I had to do, but they didn't tell me much about how to do it well.

I think ultimately you have to develop a sort of customer service persona that is unfailingly polite, and you put that on when you interact with the public. You might think you already possess and use such a persona, but the unfailingly polite persona is made of a metal stronger than vibranium and it never breaks.

It also helped reading Danny Meyer's Setting the Table.

The G1W is probably your best bet for recording quality vs price. Here's a review with some footage.

Sorry this happened to you. ]:

A metal spatula costs less than ten bucks. Screw "the principle" of the thing, I'd just buy one and tell everyone "we're using this now."

Here is the page on Amazon! It’s also online on Barnes and Noble’s website but they’ll charge you shipping for days.

It’s released with a limited edition cover, too. If you want to look at some of the promotional stuff before you bite the bullet (I feel weird telling people that they should just buy it) here’s the Facebook page. It has videos, descriptions and stuff on it.

I deliver in a safe part of town, so I don't worry about it much but you definitely want to lock your car every time you leave it. My car is push to start, so I keep my keys on my belt, but you should keep your ignition key on a clip that you can remove from your locking remote, that way you can leave the car on while being able to lock it when you leave to go to the door.

Call the customer if the house is all dark and scary in a bad part of town and tell them to turn on the porchlight. Don't go walking up in the dark.

Get a big MagLite flashlight with a bright LED bulb with a belt holster It can blind attackers or be used as a weapon, as well as help you see address markers on houses or building numbers on apartments.

Nothing else besides this to recommend, but I have a knife, tazer, and punching tool as well for defense. There is a myriad of self defense weapons available online, one of my favorites being a monkey fist, which is a steel ball on paracord. Simple and inconspicuous, turns your keychain into a defense weapon.
