    OK, I hate to be so positive, but I feel I had a very fair 3 day ride. So, of course, everything that happened on that ride is included in my SPORH.
    The things that were not included (because they didn't happen on those 3 days) are:

    1. Delivering off-route misloads.
    2. Meeting another driver to take/give work.
    3. Meeting the air driver to dump reds.

    I can generally average my SPORH on days when the above doesn't happen.

    When you put your fuel in the DIAD you get the fueling allowance.

    That is true, but the fuel allowance is less time than it takes to put it in the DIAD.............

    Of course none of that happens when they ride with you, they make sure of that ahead of time. Just make sure you note that when they do your 3 day review..

    Voiding a first attempt on a bad add when a second attempt is credit for the first stop.

    Stopping at a comm stop bet 12 and 1, not able to show an attempt.

    Calling other drivers to set up meets, which the center should be doing, and not being compensated for the phone.

    While it happens less now than it used to - filling out waybills, especially Int'l and doc's. We used to get a time allowance for waybills collected. Also double tripping back to the center. We are no longer allowed to code out double trips and have to eat it as on road time. There is even calling the brokerage hotline, although most drivers don't even bother - the first thing that happens is you get put on hold.

    I guess I can chalk it all up to being paid per hour anyways, but I actually like to go home once in a while.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    We still get credit for double trips in my center.
