    Finished up the day with 75 stops and less than 8 hours on the clock. I guess they decided to do something nice for us at my center and dispatched as many routes as possible (probably to keep all the extra pay to a minimum) but it worked out into a pretty easy day for just about everyone here.

    How'd everyone else' go?

    I only loaded two routes and my usual heavy one was light. I estimated earning ~$140 after taxes.

    How long have you been employed by UPS?

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Do any of you feel that it was a smart business decision to work today?

    Do any of you feel that what was delivered today will make any difference on Monday?

    Had 140 or so stops. Also had a helper 3 hours. Since most of my pick ups were closed I finished about 16:45. Got home at a decent hour and am sitting back relaxing with a mixed drink in hand.

    Considering how much on my route was closed, not really.

    Yes. If the stuff for the mall on the mall route I load had not been delivered today, it would be waiting for me first thing Monday morning, plus whatever new volume is to come.

    I did get a delivery today, and went outside to see who it was, but it was a rental van. Label says it was fed-ex.
