    I cut the grass today. Only one yard my own. I don't feel your pain. Next year try and get this week off. It always sucks. Bad

    I was done at 2:00 with 129 stops. I had 5 letter boxes that get picked up at 5:15 and 5:30. So I sent a message in asking if they could find someone to pick them up. An hour and a half later while eating lunch at Friendly they came out of my board. I punch out out at 4:20 and got my guaranteed 8.

    This week I got about 3 hr of guaranteed pay, 5.5 hr's of OT, .66 hrs of bonus pay at OT rate for working more than 10 hrs 2 days plus 8 hours Holiday pay.

    Today wasn't bad. One of my drivers showed up and pulled off about ~50+ pieces for various businesses she knew were going to be closed. It really looked like it was going to be a relatively reasonable day for many drivers. Monday's start time is two hours earlier than normal, so I'm sure everybody is in for a real treat.

    I asked to be off and instead they had me come and run my route and half of another. Meanwhile there were cover drivers sitting at home not working. #logistics

    Our center management team told us at the beginning of the week that this would be a long two weeks. But we already knew that. I'm so glad I'm on the 9.5 list. :)

    In the southern supplement, that would be a fileable offense.

    It was over 9.5 for almost everyone in my center today. Over 10 for many. I punched just under 10. Some centers are well planned, others not so much.
