    I know its only November but I cant wait for these temp hires go back from the rocks they came crawling out from! They suck as drivers destroy everything they drive and then deny that they did it to begin with! Plus if you try to help them they know everything! They posted work at my building for Thanksgiving and you should here them say how they deserve to work it instead of senior drivers. One guy said company guys made enough and they should let casuals work!

    I would be very happy to let a casual work ahead of me on Friday.

    Maybe let go of some of that negativity, it cannot be good for your health.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    Can't wait...I've got a few snot nosed seasonal drivers on my line. I'm not your mother...stop asking me everyday which belt your route is on...it's not my job to keep track. They're like helpless lost sheep with diads. Ummm...Where is FL4? Seriously?? How do you not fall down more...do you need a helmet?? Lmao

    The negativity is that the two seasonals I load for....aren't gonna tip me at Christmas.

    My loader is going to get hosed this year. Another preloader broke his back and is in a halo, so rather than tip our preloaders, he is going to get all of it. Plus, I am smoking up a batch of ribs for him and his family.

    I don't mind get hosed for a good cause....but not because seasonals don't know any better. Daaamn that's terrible....he can have my tips too!

    He did it on vacation, so is getting disability, which is very, very little. He won a bid to go driving 10 years ago, went to school and went back to the preload after 3 weeks. Said he was not interested in giving up that much family time while his daughters were young.

    He is a good guy and will be back to the preload.

    It may not be my place to say this..without approval from Cheryl. But situations like your preloader...where we know it's not a scam....if hypothetically we were directed to a Paypal donation site to donate money for his family....I know I'd give something for an injured Teamster brother. I'm sure a bunch of us on here would too!

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    I will give my loader a $100 tip for his efforts throughout the year. If I were to prorate that for Peak it would work out to about $10-15.

    rod retired and happy


    Although a really nice idea I can picture it getting abused by some.

    My regular drivers will tip me....why should the seasonals? They're only working here for a month or so....and frankly, I make more than they do, so I can't even blame them.

    Then why did you whine how they "aren't gonna tip me at Christmas"?

    Whining? No, stating facts....do I appreciate being forced to load seasonal routes? No, center manager is essentially taking money out of my pocket. But I WAD.

    Agreed, it was just a thought. Holidays are tough enough without being out with an injury amd losing money.

    Incidentally, do you think you'll work up the sack to ask out the OMS clerk by Christmas? You could take her to Dunkin Donuts for a coffee, and wow her with your senior ctizen discount!
