    Any of you watch this show? My son loves to watch it so we usually watch it together.

    Well there was a Fed Ex driver on the show tonight. His intro before his run showed him at work. He was sprinting back and forth to his truck. He also said he became his Sups best driver by running 44 stops in 2 1/2 hours.

    I almost fell out of my chair laughing so hard.

    Ah, FedEx. Running off stops (literally), leaving their bulkhead doors open, leaving the engine running, parking on the wrong side of the street, not ringing the bell or knocking...Amateurs.

    The last time I was a helper my driver mocked FedEx every chance he got. "Walking is hard!" -- In reference to a driver that parked on the wrong side of the street...so he could run the stop off from the driver-side door.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    One of the first things that I was taught as a new driver was to never disparage the competition.

    When I'm in town I can do 30-45 stops/hour. But when I head out to the country I'm down in that 12-15 stop range.

    I consider myself to be an efficient driver but I am pushing it at 20-22 SPORH.

    30-45? Are you throwing them out newspaper style as you drive by?

    Nah. Some of my stuff is pretty tight. And when you have addresses like 2219, 2221 and 2220 all getting stuff, it's easy to dump stops when they come off in clusters like that.

    And @UpstateNYUPSer , you can I are both 8 hour drivers. I'm sure we have the same pace and efficiency.

    I usually run around 36 sporh. I have been on routes that 16 sporh is burning the route up. So every route is different.

    To be fair, there are times i park on the driver side. Sometimes it's actually safer.

    FedEx air and ground are completely different, would think you tards would know that. Area size makes all the difference
