    Rainman Its all good.

    We should be ok up till 2 weeks before Christmas. Management has tried to put a good plan into place, and as far as they could, they have succeeded. Things will start getting super heavy then, even worse when Brand Ex starts turning away business. At that point, stick your head between your legs and kiss your butt goodbye.

    If our chiefs do as they say, we will be turning away pkgs last week or so too. And this really needs to happen with all carriers.

    PASinterference Yes, I know I'm working late.

    I heard they will either turn them away or charge more. Im predicting the latter.

    I think the whole issue will be if the bean counters in Atlanta are able to maintain the plan with its higher payroll or they will fall back into the doing more with less. I think they will sustain the plan but will fall back to their old ways next year.

    Absolutely! Don't think this will happen though since air is a cash cow.

    Our new drivers are terrible. They are delivering 5hr planned days in 11 hrs.

    They can't run any rural areas because they can't read maps, so they are afraid to send them out of town.

    We replaced competent retirees with people who thought all this job required was the ability to drive a package car. I guess they can only work us 60 hours a week.

    Is it just me or does it seem like 2 weeks ago we were just saying it is too early for peak threads because it was only August?

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

    Yeah I'd like to see them explain that. We charged you more but still didn't get your stuff delivered. Lol

    Recently had a seasonal deliver 50 stops in town and it took him 10 hours. Had to get help from 5 other drivers.

    Amazon is an idiot. At least we learned a little from last year.

    Tuesday should be the last guaranteed delivery day, with Wednesday to clean up the leftovers.

    Should be and reality often diverge. You know as well as I know some cubicle dweller in Atlanta will once again tell Amazon "yeah we can do it" and we will be left cleaning up their mess.
