    Was 3-hour planned. The air pickups screwed it up completely - without them I would have been done 11:30.

    220-250 miles? Just no freakin way - my butt would be numb.

    For during the week? It would be the plum job to have. I'd kill for it.

    For memorial day weekend when I should have been done by 12? You can have it.

    The only reason I work is to make money. Piss poor management doesn't bother me at all.

    Yeah, but sometimes that mad dog can turn around & bite you.

    If your holding a bone the mad dog will salivate. If you hold a club the mad dog whimpers and tucks its tail between its legs

    Yes, but what "club" does a driver wield?

    IF you averaged 60 m.p.h., which you can't, just the driving part should plan out to AT LEAST 3 hours and 10 minutes. If you add 15 stops, the realistic plan should be closer to over 4 hours. If you are going to work Saturdays, you might as well get paid for the hours you are owed.

    Ah, so you agree with me. What is realistically a 4+ hour day is usually just a 3 hour planned day.
