    8:20am Hey sup can he run my route for me so I can go home? Sup walks away.....
    8:59am Yes he can run the route..
    9am I tell sup..I'm over dispatched with 25 air stops, I'm going to have late air...

    Ended up with 4 late air...

    Next time another driver wants me to cover for them ill politely decline... this is the second time I got screwed by leaving the building late by helping another guy get a day off... And monday I'll be in the office because of it..

    HAHA. If a senior driver wants to go home over you, he doesn't have to ask. You use your seniority to bump the junior guy (YOU)

    If you told them you were going to have late air, the ball is in their court. However, with your recent track record.....this doesn't really seem like a job you will be successful at

    The center manager thats covering for another center manager loves to fire and suspend drivers. He fired a guy for sheeting up business past 5pm... never been in trouble before, he sat home for 2 weeks waiting for hearing.

    Not to sound like "them", but what are his production numbers like? Like if you get sent help everyday on routes other drivers accomplish, that might be the rest of the story. Maybe.

    Also, if he is covering for a center manager....and firing people left and right....maybe he is not covering. And he wants you to know he is not covering.

    Always assume the worst from your enemies, jedi

    he might not be covering if the other center manager doesnt come back, hes been gone for a week now, maybe he got fired or quit.

    If you have too many air stops, you simply have to tell them before you leave the building. Run straight air with no ground, its their problem then not yours....

    Well, sounds like you told them you'd have late air, so there's that.

    At least you still have a job in which you can be pulled into the office for!

    But, you should be fine. Tell your center manager what you told us, no worries.

    That happened to me twice. The third time a driver tried to bump me 10 minutes before start I told the US and he got me back on my original route. Don't let management and other drivers bone you like that.

  16. I thought he fired a driver and he was home for two weeks? How does that work if he's only been there for a week? Time travel?

    You cant be fired for that by the way. If the dumbasczz sat home for 2 weeks hes a complete idiot lol.

    Just buy a 5 year supply of cherry lube and it will be ok for you. Weve all been through it. Your first 5 to 10 years driving usually suck unless you get lucky and get a bidded route quickly.

    A wise man once told me, you can't let it bother you. The second you give ups the authority to stress you, it's game over.

    Under promise, over deliver, and always error on the side of caution.
