    I was wondering if there were any posters on here that were from outside of North America.

    Maybe you should start by telling us why people desire to leave the Manchester centre. If it's just because your centre is run by a gang of drooling idiots then, sorry dude, all centres are like that.:)

    1500-2000 pieces per day???!!!!! Is that all letters or something? How many trips back and forth to the centre do you make in a day? Jesus man, the other day I left with a cubed truck, did 90 deliveries, 10 p/u's for a total of 220 pieces. And that was a stupidly busy day! ***?

    For many years the average stops on a vehicle in the metro Los Angeles area was around 140, including the pickups. Pieces have risen a bit since there are no more limits on how much weight you can ship to any one address per day.

    I do a resi route in the whittier hills I usualy have about 120 stops done by 12 30 1 pm My route is really tight and I worked (and Bitched) with magement a lot so EDD is set up perfect 20 stops are at a medical building that only takes about 15 mins to do. On the way back to the building at 2 I pick up 3 bulk stops around 300 400 packages daily , thi s fills up my delivery truck and I drop it off at the building and pick up the 40 footer (wally) I then go get the rest of my pick ups , about 15 of those are palatised already for me , Im cool with all my customers and always go out of my way to service them and in return they pretty much all help me by having the packages on the dock ready to go . My last pick up is Housten wire at 700pm busy day but it sure pays Ive had up to 2 hours incentive per day if everything goes ok. plus I`m a bad MF !!!!! LOL

    OK, I know that that was written in English, and I recognized all the words, but I only understood about half of it.

    I heard there were a lot of Muslims in Manchester. Do they stop and roll out their prayer rugs while they are on the clock?

    The USA and UK are two countries divided by a common language.

    Does seem to be a lot of difference between us here in the uk and you folks across the pond i think that the fact that you americans don't have to gain a signature for a lot of your stops is a bonus for you? Where as we have to gain a signature for everything I'd love to just put packages at the front door, we'd all probably do double, but unfortunately all the chavs here would nick them all!!!!!
    and again i will echo what my colleage mentioned about congestion the roads over here during rush hour is absolutely appalling where as the times ive been to canada and the states threre's nout on the roads

    Oh and helenof california i think were gonna have to buy you a english dictionary.......

    I was in Boston last Tuesday. It's a lot nicer to get around nowthat the Big Dig is pretty much done. It used to be that you could see where you wanted to be but you couldn't get there from where you were.
