Any Centers getting Peak food?

    In the past the center team would provide a spread of food at least one day during peak. Last year we had about 500 chicken wings from a local joint, in years past Chili etc. In these days of cut backs I wonder if we'll get any grub this year. Maybe the center manager will pull some food out of his MIP if the company won't. We've had drivers bring food in the past.

    Feeders is having food next Tuesday. This is a logistical nightmare, as we have people starting round the clock. They have also asked drivers to help out by bringing something.

    Speaking for myself, I won't be eating anything because I'm a little leery of an all day buffet where nothing's been refrigerated for who knows how long.

    I am a big fan of "It's the thought that counts" though, and I am happy they are doing this!

    Maybe I'll bring something non-perishable.

    Not to worry. That's why the Centers are kept at 45 degrees.

    Maybe ice cream will work out well.

    What if the chicken came from a Union restaurant?

    After a long cold day I'll eat whatever swill they put in front of me. I just wish they could put out a frosty keg.

    All I know is almost everyday when I get back, there's always a mound of empty pizza boxes. Somebody's face is getting fed and it sure as hell isn't us drivers.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    We had donuts, coffe and juice/milk yesterday.

    Our center manager is usually pretty good about this and I suspect we will have pizza sometime next week.

    I always eat what ever thay put out 'cause I don't want to be the only driver without food poisoning tomorrow.

    You're kidding about the food, right? This whole thread is a sardonic joke, right?
