    The night before drink three beers. During the day drink three two liters of Mountain Dew. You should be fine if you do this.

    That's gonna make me have to go piss a lot. I don't like getting out of the pool that much.

    Why? Isn't that why we have option days? I've not had a no pay in 5 years and we get 7 days a year. I've taken 2 days off this year to date.

    If I thought they wouldn't leave us out there till 900 like Monday I wouldn't be so concerned, but yeah, I don't see that not happening.

    For what its worth when we have two feet of snow or it's 98 degrees I never call off. I always go on the bad days and take my days off on the good ones. I lead by example but don't begrudge anyone for calling off anytime they want. This is a business and they plan for stuff like this so they will figure it out. It's just one day

    cosmo1 Just another internet hooligan.

    Personally, I love the 2 feet of snow days. EC and easy money!

    Yeah, I get where you're coming from. The issue is when we have 5 people go home a day and have low senority drivers arguing over who's not going to run the route as they all want to go home, I think they can figure out who's gunna "suck it up and go to work" as it's not going to be me. Such are the benifits of not using my option days and making back door deals. I don't owe management anything and they don't owe me anything, only what's agreed upon in the contract.

    It'll be interesting monday morning when I'm questioned by my Oncar for being over allowed on Friday.
    I'm certain to be on the "5 Least Best " list,and it will be a big chuckle fest when he tells me he knows it's hot,but can i try and improve my performance?

    That's good, you are more then welcome to work in 100 degree weather, I will more than likely use one of my contractual paid days to not have to.

    Saturday will not be much better ... maybe even higher.

    My team captain asked me if I could play tennis on Saturday and I said, "Nope. I don't play tennis when it is over 85".

    I'm doing a photo shoot of a wheelchair racer for his sponsor Saturday morning and I'll be processing them on my PC in the heat of the day.

    It's a lot easier to put up with the heat when it's doing something you enjoy and can take breaks at your own pace. Hope your pc doesn't shut down like the DIAD does at 95degrees.

    Can't take breaks in tennis when you want - it's a league.

    My DSLR camera will shut down when it gets too hot.
    I have learned to take a large thermos bag with frozen packs in it so I can put my camera in there.
