does it seem like we are getting more volume earlier than usual? For years now it hasn't been this heavy on me until the middle of the month. I don't know if it is internet sales or whether people have decided to buy early but I am getting my butt kicked. I am already working between 10 and 11 hour days all last week and had a couple of 52 hour weeks last month. Being in a satellite center we get our stuff late. Our start time isn't until 9:30 and we are usually still loading at 9:45. I have a 30 minute commute so I am not getting home until 9:30 or later. This is going to be a long 3 weeks I am afraid.
