It’s a simple fact that people love the convenience of at-home delivery services, especially since the dawn of the pandemic. These days, we’re relying more and more on delivery services.
Drivers already face enormous challenges when it comes to delivering every single package on their trucks during their shifts. Still, most people probably aren’t aware of the most annoying, uncomfortable, and unhealthy challenge of all: needing to find a bathroom while out on their route.
Why Not Just Stop Along the Delivery Route?
Everyone knows that holding it in isn’t just annoying, it’s also incredibly unhealthy! You may be thinking, “Why don’t drivers just stop when they need to use the restroom?” Unfortunately, it’s not quite that simple.
It’s common for delivery drivers to work long, grueling shifts since most delivery service providers don’t allow drivers to return with any undelivered packages from their routes. Drivers have to hustle to unload all of their deliveries during a single shift.
Furthermore, most drivers are tracked and timed! Any time a driver’s stop clocks in at more than a few minutes, their employer gets a notification, leading to drivers being chastised and, in some extreme cases, sent home for “wasting time” by going to the bathroom.
Where Does One Go?
So where does that leave drivers when nature calls? While they may catch a lucky break with a delivery to a convenient office lobby or coffee shop, more often than not, drivers are forced to make due with makeshift toilet solutions while on the go.
We’ve heard of all kinds of workarounds — plastic bottles, cleaning wipe containers, and even small trash cans in a pinch. These options are simply irritating and unsanitary, especially for female drivers!
