    Along with winter's short daylight comes this constant comment from customers. It's one thing if it's after 8, but I'm hearing it in the 5 o'clock hour. Just because it's dark doesn't mean it's late people. I don't have bankers hours like you. So for 3 hours a day I have to respond. I often say "always". In July, if I have a long day and it's 8pm I never hear it. Because it's still light out.

    What do you guys say?

    Yup, only 8 years with UPS

    It does seem like everyone else does though. 1/3 of the US doesn't even work at all.

    It's all relative bro. How many jobs do you know of that can make the $ and benefits you do with just a high school diploma? There will always be some tradeoffs for the $.;)

    You also have to realize, you would never make the same $ anywhere else doing the same job. The reality of this industry is you can't have your cake and eat it too. You ultimately have to choose what is most important to you. Time or $.

    It's a wonder why our system can't be set up to move the volume to centers early enough and have it so preload could be wrapped by 7:30am. And drivers could be on road at 8am. Run resi's for an hour and start businesses at 9. Is it really a complete impossibility?

    Yeah, I couldn't believe it when I heard it at 5:15 last Wednesday. On a day I punched out at 8:15. Helper was a no show. I felt like saying, "Late?, I haven't even taken lunch yet!"

    'Why no. I did not realize that I was still working while you are cleaning up your dinner mess. Thanks for pointing that out.'
