    I overheard a smalls supervisor last week in PCM, insisting that they grab letters by opposite corners and lift in their power zone. I couldn't help but laugh a little bit as I was walking by. How unrealistic that would be!

    Almost as bad (and for the same reason) as the FedEx Ground drivers putting info notices on every residential delivery.

    Feb. of this year we had a massive snowstorm hit the midwest. It snowed about 20 inches over the course of the day. It was so bad that I couldn't stop the package car even on residential streets because you couldn't get moving again. Cars were stuck all over, even on the main roads.

    It was the storm that shut down Lakeshore in Chicago.

    Anyway I make it back to our small central Illinois center the same time as another driver. He tried to back his package car into the building , but wasn't able to because of all the snow in the lot.

    I went into the center and asked the center manager where we should park the package cars until they cleared the lot because it was impossible to get into the building. He stood up seemingly oblivious to the weather outside the building and said "they just plowed the lot this morning"

    I looked at him and said with a straight face.."It has snowed a little since this morning"

    Every time..which is often.. that management says something that shows how detached they are from the reality we face as drivers, we look at each other and say."they just plowed it this morning"

    Several managers ago we went to the center manager as a group and complained about the workload and the cutting of routes. His response; " we didn't cut any routes- we just planned 3 too many."

    oof!
