    Not yet I'm trying to get my wife to do helper this year. It's her last year before she graduates. I want her to experience peak just one time. I got the go ahead from sups and HR now I just have to talk her into it lol.

    Nah I'd just like to be the boss of her for once. Instead of the other way around.

    I kind of wish my wife could be my helper. She would be an awesome helper.

    Really small center? We have a stand alone HR building where all that goes on.

    We got the PCM to start letting people know that we were looking for helpers. I asked tonight if the route I am on gets a helper, yep scheduled to start on Nov 14th (I think). I figured I would put up a note at the coffee shop and cafe and hope for a local farmer that is looking for some holiday money.

    Does your center allow Seasonal drivers to have helpers? We had one of our part-time preloaders drive for peak last year. He was on a downtown route, and they told him that he couldn't have a helper because he was seasonal.

    You must not have much experience being married.

    Actually she says the back of the package car is a fantasy of hers. Now I don't know that her in browns would do much for me. I'd fight thru it though.
