    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Well we had to ask all our pick ups if they were open the 2nd 3rd 5th and 6th I felt like an idiot even asking

    I don't even ask. I just put "yes".

    Our mall driver has 65 pickups--I'm pretty sure he didn't ask all 65 if they were going to be open or not.

    65 pick ups how many stops? And only 1 route delivers this mall?!?!?

    The mall is only a portion of his route. The 65 pickups are mostly smaller shippers and are not all in the mall. He averages 90-110 stops and is usually one of the first back each night.

    I think pre-load shift shouldn't work on July 5th. I rather work on July 4th and have a day off on July 5th. Why? because fireworks starts at 9-10 PM and so I can't stay up at that time because I need at least 6-7 hours of sleep for my body to function properly. :) I'm gonna have to skip having a good time with family because I have to sleep early. >_< I thought I had vacation the end of June.. wth.. I need to talk to my supervisor tomorrow >_<

    Doesn't it suck when a job gets in the way of having a good time?

    Sad part is, I actually wish I was working on the 4th...no friends to hang with this year, no lake, no burgers and dogs on the grill, nothin'. Maybe, I will be 'that guy' walking around alone for the fireworks.

    The life of a loner really sucks on holidays.
