    A lot of Target goes through Sure Post. Either way we are screwed.

    I wonder, if we get crushed, if UPS will divert some of the "proximity" packages to the USPS, so they look bad, and not us as much.

    Bring it on. Paid by the hour. More money in my pocket. They come off one at a time, whether I have 140 stops or 250 stops. Don't matter to me

    Yep, that Friday will make the rest of peak seem like a breeze...(shorter days, less stops, less miles, at least that's what I've been told.) :rolleyes2:

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

    First all people get is the ups tracking number email when it's shipped surepost.

    Second. Working 7 days a week was the only way usps handled last year. They will always deliver their packages first then surepost if it comes down to choosing what to service.
     
  17. A helper,also saves you time at red lights!

    upsbeernut Sometimes I feel like a nut, sometimes i dont.

    Already had to help a slug that was overdispatched with my usual Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday stops and he had a helper for the first time. They gave him 240 on a 700 and didn't know the area, we are screwed.(or I am)
