    What did you do to cause disciplinary action. Did you hit something?

    As long as you let them know what the situation was and put the ball in their court, it's on them. All they can do is pay you the OT.

    They can only discipline you if you did not take your full lunch.

    Sounds like a new supervisor.

    Scottyhawk What is it? A brown box. Duh

    I think that is not too shabby to do a 180 stop route blind by 9 top job

    Open letter to Over

    Of course we are friends. But weeks ago I gave you 72 hours to figure it out and you never came back to it. Now you proclaim your love for me and serenade me but then close the thread. What's a guy to think?

    uhhh, it wasn't me that closed it....
    But I do luv you, man....

    PS, I guess I'm really slow. I remember you giving me time to figure something out, but I don't remember what...

    As long as you love me, that's all that matters.

    You were nothing more than the messenger of the sad fact that, once again, their fu%ked up "plan" was an abject failure.

    The important thing was that they got the packages out of the building, they got the preloader off of the clock, and they cut out enough routes to look good on a report.

    Minor "details" such as missed packages, missed pickups or drivers like yourself who didnt get back to the building until after 9:00 at night just arent part of the "big picture." You arent the first driver to come back to the building at 9:00, nor will you be the last. By Tuesday they will have completely forgotten your late night and will be hard at work screwing things up for someone else.

    and when i talked to another driver that i had to pick up more stops from he told me that he had done the same type of route with less stops and didnt clock out until 945 and hes been driving for over 20 years

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


    First its just numbers pay no attention. Second if you didn't take a pay actual and got your guarantee all that means is you had less than 8 hours of work that why you showed up over allowed. This happened to me once while training. I Was done in 7 hours but only had a 7.5 planned day. Since I was Paid for 8 I showed up .5 late instead of .5 early.


    Also did you have air that didn't make it back to the trailer and did not notify them the air wouldn't make it back? This would be the only way they could punish you.

    well tomorrow if they put me on a route ill ask him after he chews my butt for being back late and see what he says all the while i try to keep from laughing at him. my on road has been with the company less time than i have and also has less driving time than myself.

    Let them be :censored2:, I have yet to see them come back with an accurate time study on an add/cut or garbage route. Every garbage route I have run I have been at least 45 minutes over and they get :censored2: but there is nothing they can do to dicipline you.
