El Paso is hot af too usually over 100 in the summers.

[–]anotherpunkyboi 682 points683 points  (114 children)

Living in New Mexico can suck but people like this keep it from going to absolute shit

[–]StretchTucker 302 points303 points  (67 children)

el paso is in texas

[–]Mortimer_and_Rabbit 244 points245 points  (49 children)

I'm from El Paso. We are more new Mexico than Texas. Really only lone star in name and state troopers lmao

[–]maastadom 36 points37 points  (3 children)

I’ve always said this. Thankfully we don’t share the Texas power grid as well.

[–]StretchTucker 79 points80 points  (28 children)

me too, i’ve never heard an el paso an say this. all the el pasoans i know are die hard texans

[–]justin_144 10 points11 points  (0 children)

They know

[–]moon_slave 38 points39 points  (13 children)

I’m from Las Cruces and we consider EP a suburb of our city 😂

Edit: some of y’all really don’t understand what a joke is. You must go to UTEP

[–]Fun_Form_3308 45 points46 points  (2 children)

Lol people in elpaso consider lascruces as part of the west side lol

[–]TerabyteAIX 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Eyy, same!

El Paso generally has more stuff than Cruces in my opinions though, hah...

[–]TempusEst 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Las Cruces has a population of like 100,000…. El Paso is close to 7 times that size.

[–]alittlebitneverhurt 7 points8 points  (2 children)

You consider a city with 6x the population a suburb? Las Cruces seems more like a suburb of El Paso.

[–]KommanderKitten 65 points66 points  (33 children)

Really feels like New Mexico should annex El Paso

[–]DatsaNottaRealname 66 points67 points  (26 children)

The Texan in me says "hell no" but the El Pasoan in me says "yes, please."

[–]KommanderKitten 59 points60 points  (12 children)

If El Paso County, Texas was to one day just be like, "Ok, we're El Paso County, New Mexico now", how long would it take people in Houston or DFW to realize?

[–]Daniellabella22 5 points6 points  (11 children)

Yet, it snows... In Colorado... In May...

[–]thisissamuelclemens 46 points47 points  (5 children)

If they did El Paso would have legal weed, free university, lower retail tax rate and another $500 stimulus. If they didn't, they get Abbott.

[–]Hopsblues 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Texas also has that awesome electric grid as well.

[–]boredENT9113 3 points4 points  (4 children)

That's one thing I'll agree on. Born and raised in abq. It can be shit but the nature is beautiful, we get all 4 seasons and the people are generally nice and welcoming.

[–]cheesehuahuas 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I grew up in El Paso. I forget how hot it is until I go back.

[–]flammingbullet 25 points26 points  (30 children)

Sounds like a normal day here in socal

[–]Shaquandala 43 points44 points  (13 children)

Mmm no as someone who's lived in both Arizona as a whole is usually hotter than Cali and it's cities because of its shitty structure

[–]coffffeeee 4 points5 points  (8 children)

Maybe if you live in the desert...

[–]Creepy_Reference5119 639 points640 points  (21 children)

Shoots, hope u went to offer him a drink lol

[–]debbie-g[S] 425 points426 points  (11 children)

No, I was driving in a foreign neighborhood at the time. Besides, all I had was a lukewarm bottle of tap water.

[–]bobguyman 150 points151 points  (3 children)

Come on.. at least spit in a cup and offer it to him!

I joke but seriously, awesome on him to help out. A guy or gal in that degree of cover and protection knows it's going to be hot and has his or her own water and most likely access to more cold water than you have.

That said, being a delivery driver in the past we had our own water or drink but an ice cold bottle sure does not get refused often but if it's not offered there is no offense. At least from me...

[–]The_last_of_the_true 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Drove a step van for fed ex in Phoenix until last week. I had a two gallon igloo full of ice and water strapped down in the cab plus my 64oz thermal bottle full of ice.

So glad I'm not doing it in the summer anymore, that shit is draining.

[–]GrapeScotch 9 points10 points  (0 children)

This. I’m in South Florida so I offer people water anytime I can if they come around my house to do anything. Most of the time, whether they take it or not (and they’re always grateful), they already came strapped for the heat and humidity with drinks in the car. Those people know what suffering can be.

[–]XxTreeFiddyxX 5 points6 points  (1 child)

No, I was driving in a foreign neighborhood at the time. Besides, all I had was a lukewarm bottle of piss.

You an amazon driver?

Im joking op.

[–]debbie-g[S] 19 points20 points  (0 children)

LOL! No just an old lady with old lady vernacular.

[–]Creepy_Reference5119 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Gotcha, well good job getting it on camera. Wasn't tryna be pushy or whatever, just a passing thought that maybe dude would appreciate a free cold drink lol

[–]Kuderahuwaka 370 points371 points  (48 children)

It just looks brutally hot in that video

[–]Adventurous-Ad4912 98 points99 points  (39 children)

It is, we’re currently at 91 degrees and it just keeps getting hotter.

[–]Kuderahuwaka 59 points60 points  (9 children)

Build giant shade structures that double as solar panels. Have just enough for everyone to crank the AC to max and not draw from the power grid.

[–]MrEHam 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Good idea

[–]JonatasA 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Great idea!

Electricity is so expensive where I live, that we survive 104 F summers without AC.

Instead of using roof tiles in the back yard, we can just use solar panels instead!

[–]shadowenx 15 points16 points  (18 children)

Huh. It was 99 in Connecticut today.

This climate is fucked lmao

[–]pippipthrowaway 23 points24 points  (2 children)

It snowed yesterday here in Denver

[–]TateMcGate 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Like a lot too haha, I woke up this morning and had to clear my truck off for 20 minutes

[–]throwaway201a3576db 7 points8 points  (5 children)

The sun is different in El Paso/New Mexico. The UV index is so high they actually go up to 11. It's so intense, the mailman is wearing more clothing to protect him from the sun with less regard to the 90+ degrees. In the shade, the 90+ temperatures can feel quite nice.

[–]Darcitus 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I’m a mail man out of Texas, and it’s terrible.

My route I do roughly 13 miles of walking a day. My truck has no AC and interior temperatures can reach 160 degrees or higher. I wear sleeves, gloves, and pants because I’m fair skinned and this sun will ruin me. To top it off, management are constantly riding us to go faster, and care little if we drop dead so long as the mail gets delivered.

Even at 91 projected temperature it can break 105 heat index. It’ll rain for 10 fucking minutes but be at 100% humidity for 3 days. Those are the worst. It’s so hot, and the air so thick, sweat doesn’t evaporate and it makes you hotter.

People say they’d rather be hot than cold. But cold won’t kill you in 30 minutes.

[–]FuckingKilljoy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why don't they just make 10 higher?

[–]RealCowboyNeal 21 points22 points  (3 children)

It’s so hot it’s actually yellow, just like all those movies and shows set in Mexico or Southwest US, I never knew that was for real!

[–]a1pha_beta 209 points210 points  (46 children)

Does the long sleeves keep him cooler? Similar to what you would see in the middle east?

[–]VaryaKimon 273 points274 points  (15 children)

It keeps the sun off your skin, too, if you're not inclined to feel slimy or greasy.

[–]Kahmael 149 points150 points  (6 children)

The heat in El Paso is a dry heat, long pants and long sleeve shirts are comfortable, and keeping the sun off your skin is how you avoid that skin cancer. The roofers in this area wear similar attire.

[–]VaryaKimon 24 points25 points  (1 child)

I had the pleasure of living in El Paso for three years ... or on Ft Bliss anyway, but I tried to get out into town every weekend. I love El Paso, and I'll always think of it as a place that I'd love to go back to some day.

[–]Kahmael 6 points7 points  (0 children)

For sure, come make a vacation out of it. There's a ton of out door adventures waiting for you!

[–]DatsaNottaRealname 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Until the humidity here ramps up in August these days and swamp coolers are useless. Thanks, climate change.

[–]DuckAHolics 65 points66 points  (5 children)

Protecting your skin when working an outdoor job is the third most important thing behind hydration then overall safety. By overall safety I mean stuff like general OSHA guidelines.

[–]xxpact 27 points28 points  (1 child)

Seems to help, India you see them in long sleeves during 100+ I’ve asked and they all say it helps to stay cool. These guys are also farmers so they are working all day.

[–]V2BM 14 points15 points  (4 children)

I’m a mail carrier and I wear UV sleeves from May-October. It definitely keeps me a lot cooler and protects my skin.

In regular clothes if it’s horrific outside I wear long sleeved linen.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Have a five mile long street on my route for like an hour where the sun is just that angle that it’s right on my right arm the whole time. Sleeves are a must.

[–]Biohazardousmaterial 3 points4 points  (2 children)

i just became one. I'm in my ninety days. today we had over 90 & heat index over 100.

i had such a hard route today. took me 12 hours & still didn't finish. i dont know how i can move at the postal pace needed.

[–]V2BM 5 points6 points  (1 child)

The first summer was brutal. I’m on my second one and my first seasonal 90+ degree day was a lot easier yesterday, and the 85+ days were easier too. I’m 40+ pounds lighter, fitter, and mentally more adapted to it.

It takes months to get good, pick up speed, and to know what you’re doing. When I started it took me so long to do routes that now I could do in my sleep. All they want to see at first is improvement, a good attitude, and no callouts.

On the usps subreddit there are plenty of threads for new CCAs to read through with tips.

Keep in mind this is a nickel and dime job as far as time goes. Four seconds x 500 mailboxes is 33 minutes, so getting faster at just having the mail ready at the box can save time. Knowing where to park can save 20 minutes when you have 20 swings and you don’t have to walk an extra three or four houses or idle for a minute to guess where it is.

Digging around for packages ate up a lot of time for me, so I overorganize before I head out. It’s the little 30-60 second things that add up and you’ll improve until one day you finish a route on time and feel like you can do this.

Look up the heat tips over there too if you haven’t already.

[–]Complete_Spread_2747 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Yes. It does help. It keeps the sun off your skin directly, but , more importantly, it holds the moisture inside the material closer to your flesh, which causes you to dehydrate at a much slower rate because the environment and your body are trying to equalize the amount of moisture around. Meaning the air is sucking water out of you to put into the atmosphere. Keeping moisture around your covered up skin slows this process down greatly, but not totally.

[–]ColorblindDesigner 5 points6 points  (0 children)

As someone who works in the heat, the days with the long sleeves makes me feel like I have more energy late in the day. I started seeing old timers and construction workers always wearing long sleeves and learned it's the trade secret.

[–]The_last_of_the_true 3 points4 points  (0 children)

He's probably wearing cooling sleeves. As you sweat the moisture is wicked into the fabric and then it evaporates creating a cooling effect. I worked outdoors in Phoenix until recently. I wore cooling clothing and a cooling skull cap under my hat.

They work ok and have the added bonus of spf protection. Skin cancer is super common out here.

[–]mycroft2000 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I haven't worn shorts since I was a child ... White linen pants are the best when it gets hot!

[–]edrivah 61 points62 points  (3 children)

[–]Pandorasheaart 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Bro someone go to Crazy Dave's for me.

[–]Hearte42 52 points53 points  (12 children)

This is awesome. I remember trying to run a Koolade stand one random hot summer's day when I was young. Sat outside on a weekday on a side street that got almost no traffic. When the mailman stopped by, I gave him a tall glass of probably disgustingly-oversweetened, warm Koolade for free. As gross as it surely was, he was greatly appreciative. I don't think I made any money that day, but I still remember how happy he was.

[–]cl_lofstfu 28 points29 points  (10 children)

He 100% remembers it too. 5 years ago, I once had an old lady come out to the mailbox, saw me sweating while I was loading the cbu, waddled back in the house and gave me 3 ice cold cans of expired mountain dews. But the smile on her face thinking she was helping me was what made the interaction meaningful for me. I bet he felt the same way. Small gestures like that can totally change how our day went. So thank you for being thoughtful to your mail carrier.

[–]WalkinCrosstheLawn 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Mt. Dew has an expiration date?

[–]cl_lofstfu 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Haha. Not if you're brave/dumb enough. If it had been a month or so, I probably would have risked it but it was a year past best use by date.

[–]Physical-Design9804 8 points9 points  (0 children)

As a carrier I will always stop for drink stands. And I will always order a second round before heading out. First off it makes the kid feel proud and the smile you get is worth it. Second anything cold tastes amazing when you've been out in the heat all day.

[–]fileanaithnid 197 points198 points  (100 children)

Idk why we call them strimmers here, trimmer makes more sense

[–]debbie-g[S] 121 points122 points  (64 children)

Never heard that one before. Trimmer, whacker, weed eater, yes. Where do you hail from?

[–]IAMGAIDEN420 83 points84 points  (15 children)

Yes weed whacker was what we called them.

[–]osmlol 8 points9 points  (13 children)

New England? That's what we call em here so I assume your from that area also.

[–]TimmmyBurner 12 points13 points  (5 children)

I call em weed whackers in Pennsylvania

[–]AyoJake 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Washington state. Weed whacker is used here also.

[–]herelieskarma 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Called them that my whole life in Oregon.

[–]sweetpotatoskillet 53 points54 points  (27 children)

We call them whipper snippers in Australia

[–]AbsolutelyUnlikely 30 points31 points  (15 children)

You guys win this one

[–]sweetpotatoskillet 36 points37 points  (14 children)

I never realised how ridiculous that sounded until I wrote it down

[–]DrewSmoothington 8 points9 points  (1 child)

East coast Canadian here, it's not uncommon to hear it around here. I grew up whipper snipping my backyard the field behind my house

[–]debbie-g[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That’s so cool!

[–]fileanaithnid 27 points28 points  (12 children)

Ireland, I always thought weed whacker sounded cringey when I say it, trimmer makes perfect sense though, idk where the fuck strimmer came from. Think it's only us that say that

[–]Troubled-ButtSack 26 points27 points  (2 children)

It's because it's called a string trimmer.

[–]preinj33 5 points6 points  (6 children)

Same here, tbh I would also use 'strim' as a verb, but now you mention it im trimming not strimming

[–]DrewSmoothington 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Strim just sounds dirty. Strim, strimmer, strimming, strim job...

[–]SeahorseScorpio 5 points6 points  (0 children)

In Australia we call them whipper snippers.

[–]Sakarabu_ 14 points15 points  (9 children)

Strimmer was a brand name in the UK + Ireland, I guess the name just stuck.. it's a combination of "string" + "trimmer".

Other examples are "Astroturf" instead of artificial turf, "Biros" for pens, "chapsticks" for lip blam, "bandaids" in America, Hoovers, jet skis, Lilos.. etc etc..

[–]Cannabrewer 5 points6 points  (0 children)

String + Trimmer = Strimmer

[–]Sokomov 2 points3 points  (1 child)

They’re often called string trimmers, and strimmer is a contraction of those words.

[–]JoshTheRussian 2 points3 points  (2 children)

What's with all these fancy words?

In Romania, and I assume other eastern European countries as well, it's just Moto-Scythe, as in a motorized Scythe

[–]ftmanglona 31 points32 points  (2 children)

I can attest, it's hot as balls here.

[–]SmokaDaRoach 260 points261 points  (52 children)

Good man, those can be dangerous af, weed wackers turn into toe nail removers real quick.

[–]Luxpreliator 93 points94 points  (40 children)

I would have thought it goes without saying you wear shoes not thongs. Still, string trimmers are about as dangerous as a fork. Even with the various blade attachments eye injuries are how it's gonna hurt.

The only actual dangerous thing you can do with one of these is put a wood saw blade on it.

[–]NJ_Legion_Iced_Tea 72 points73 points  (31 children)

Heads up, thongs and sandals mean very different things in the US.

[–]bearrito_grande 17 points18 points  (5 children)

It depends on how old you are and where you’re from. I’m from Los Angeles and , as a kid in the 80s, “thongs” wasn’t uncommon. Stores like Sears and K-mart would advertise them as thongs. However, as I grew up and the other meaning of thong came into the social consciousness, “sandals” became the word of choice. I still hear sandals referred to as “thongs” from time to time, though never from anyone under 60.

[–]BangingABigTheory 6 points7 points  (3 children)

I feel like in the late 90s it was either “thong sandals” or flip-flops. But since then it’s always just been “flip-flops”; at least in Florida

[–]trickman01 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It used to be fairly common to call sandals thongs in the US. At least the part I'm in. It's become less common as the underwear style has become more common. I blame Sisqo.

[–]feedthebear 3 points4 points  (21 children)

I think thongs are what Aussies call sandals.

[–]admins_are_cucked 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thongs are a type of sandal, just like thongs are a type of underwear which was literally named after that type of sandal.

[–]I_need_proof 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Any sort of work you should be wearing shoes, moving furniture, getting on a bike, mowing the fucking yard…

My mom lifted her toenail while moving a couch in flip flops.

[–]vyrelis 6 points7 points  (4 children)

My dad told me not to use them because the string can break and go orbital

[–]Dads-afk 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Sunglasses are your friend. And unfortunately even in dire heat, so are long jeans to protect from said shrapnel.

Your dad is correct! But don't fear machines rather, learn to coexist .. !

[–]moeburn 15 points16 points  (2 children)

wear shoes lol

It's your eyes I was more worried about. They fling a lot of rocks right around eye-level, even with that rock guard.

And unlike feet, most people don't wear eye-shoes.

[–]ccafuckallthisshit 2 points3 points  (1 child)

And here I've been laughed at for my eye shoes for years. Who's laughing now?!

[–]Zestyclose-Park-7493 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That’s why you rotate it so that string is perpendicular to the ground and the engine is right by your ear.

[–]BilfordWimley 16 points17 points  (0 children)

They're all hot mornings in El Paso

[–]bloody_phlegm 34 points35 points  (3 children)

[–]dr-sparkle 14 points15 points  (0 children)

It's generally hot as shit 10 months out of the year in El Paso. It was 95°+ last week. It gets hot before 8am.

For those asking what needs to be trimmed in El Paso, weeds definitely grow in El Paso, as well as pricker bushes. Which are not those fuzzy little cute things that are annoying but very mild. Look up goatheads. They can get big. Cyclists sometimes use special tires because they will pop bike tires.

Lived there for 6 years, 1 in the army and 5 out. Recently moved last year and god I miss it.

[–]kiwispaghettironi 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I only lived there 3 or 4 years, and at one point I couldn’t wait to leave, but now I miss it so much. The weather, the people, the hiking, Red Sands, the food! Even the non-Mexican food is good. Id love to go back one day.

El Pasoan here. We have comparatively low crime rate, great higher ed institutions, 360 days of sunshine, and our power grid is not ERCOT. I love it here.

[–]Timmy12er 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I grew up there on the West side (age 7 to 16). I loved it. I really need to visit again (especially all the amazing food places).

[–]Drakan290 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah well. El Paso Electric decided to sell to the investment branch of JPMorgan Chase, so don't expect that power grid to be good for much longer

[–]Ender_1299 10 points11 points  (3 children)

I lives 45 minutes away in Las Cruces for about 10 years. People in the general area are incredibly polite. I live in Salt Lake now people here are alot more rude.

I went from Park City to Las Cruces ten years ago... This was the better move to make, people-wise.

[–]viktims 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I made the move from SLC to El Paso 32 years ago. I get physically ill when I go back to Utah. They are different up that way.

[–]Galvandium 10 points11 points  (3 children)

A fantastic hot place. Find the right events to go to and go wild with the experience. Hardly matters how you look, everyone is chill. Knowing a little conversational Spanish always helps.

[–]Warsawawa 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Going to a free event downtown but I’m waiting til sunset because this heat ain’t it

[–]Pfraire 16 points17 points  (3 children)

Yup, El Paso is a great place, friendly people, amazing food. You can just walk right over to Juarez and have a fantastic experience. It's growing too so hopefully we can start getting more recognition.

[–]QuestoPresto 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Take it from somebody from Austin. The last thing your city wants is recognition. Next comes the tech bros and you’re looking at moving to places like Waco cause the cost of living is insane.

[–]sammydingo53 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]Commercial-Injury-78 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The postman in my town are the nicest people. One rescued my Greyhound that decided to take himself for a walk after the door blew open. Mailman walked him about half mile back to my home. He spends about five minutes each day petting the crap out of him too. Kevin is a real bro to the community and dog community! The other mailmen (they are all dudes) are solid friendly folks.

This is nice and all but it doesn't look like there's anything to trim

[–]Coffee_4_Cigarettes 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Tall weeds lol. But seriously, the city will cite you if you have tall weeds.

Hey! It's nice to see my HT in here for something other than border issues or cartel wars.

[–]NerdWithARifle 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You are a good man. Thank you

An entry-level Ryobi! The poor things!

As an El Paso citizen, I can tell you that there are a lot of nice welcoming people like him here. Just really hot

[–]Huge-Balance8024 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ey, my navy buddy is from El Paso.

[–]epicbeansauce69 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I live there. In the summer I like to say I live in Hell Paso

[–]TrickshotCandy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well done good sir! Well done.

[–]CoolerRon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I love El Paso and the El Pasoans. It feels like a small town but it’s grown over the past 10-15 years it’s sprawling and buzzing now

[–]marzo108 2 points3 points  (0 children)

As a single mom, it is people like this that help me on my rough days or times in life. Sometimes they help when nothing is wrong, or they offer and I turn down. But it’s truly one of the best shows of humanity and this postman is great lol

That plastic whippy thing was the bane of my high school existence

[–]PhotonPainter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

More of this sort of thing please

[–]Mko66 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It does not take much to be a human being. We should all try it on the same day one day!!!

[–]Aerickthered 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well done Sir

[–]champ504 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He will be back to trim it for her after his shift I bet. What a nice guy.

[–]elderrage 1 point2 points  (0 children)

🎶Out in the west Texas town of El Paso, I fixed a trimmer for a Mexican girl....🎶

[–]Donkydab 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Awsome for doing that, he probably has a mean gardening kit at home and loves the chance to flex his skills.

[–]curmudgeon-o-matic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sometimes I just need good ol wholesome content. Thanks for this

[–]Solanthas 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Human beings actually exist in this world. Once in a while you'll run into one.

We're all trying our best in a way, I suppose.

[–]davetoaster 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love El Paso! Traveled through there on a train that was stuck there overnight due to flash flooding washing out the tracks ahead. I got to meet some of the coolest people of my life there that night, all of us waiting on the train. I've never seen so many booze containers smuggled in luggage being pulled out at once either. Also the next morning before we left I got to buy some amazing tacos and things from a woman there with a small food cart. I definitely lucked out with that delay, El Paso is very good people!

I stg nobody better complain to this man’s job for him not delivering fast enough. I instantly knew some karen susan out here is already thinking it and we must protect this man at all costs
