    Monday week three (pretty much) the same as last.
    Not a significant increase, maybe our small hubs record but not nearly what I expected.
    A tad over six hours this AM.

    Also to note - the Midwest is getting very lucky this peak weather wise.

    Maybe if I taunt Mother Nature we will get lucky and have a white Christmas.

    Imagine you're drowning...and someone hands you a stack of packages....
    Today's work was sorted partially and loaded on saturday...between Sat and today...the entire sort took 11.5 hours. The belts out of primary were so packed...boxes were just falling off....a total s**tshow. This is my 9th peak...i have never seen the amount of work we're getting now..average day last peak was 100k. They said we did over 140k today.

    Oh yea.....(hoping our center manager surfs the BrownCafe)

    Why isn't our bulk sheets anything close to accurate on Mondays?
    Geez.....to be off a few dozen is one thing. Sheets off by the hundreds obviously means somebody isn't doing their job.

    rant over.....back to my three frogs.

    We get nothing anymore...no load charts...no bulk sheets. It's all a surprise unless i have time to print the driver manifest for a route....ridiculous.

    Started at 00:30. Volume was expected to be lighter than they originally thought. Ended up getting lots of "unforecasted" :censored2:. Oh and only a 10 min break! On the other hand, we finished earlier than ever before - ~06:45ish.

    You usually get more than a 10 min break? we don't...I'm working 9, 9.5 hour shifts with 10 min breaks.
  10. 3 done 3 to go

    3 done 3 to go In control of my own destiny

    Today. 89 stops 4 picks 145 miles. Done at 3:15. Because of work on Saturday. Running M -Sat. They expect Tuesday to Thursday to be heavy. Then taper off from there.

    We got 20 min breaks every day last week. State law requires 30 minute breaks if more than 8 hours of work.

    today wasnt that bad for me last week was worse. i believe we had around 100k got 6 hours with my break could have gotten more
    but i decided to use my usual escape plan of hiding from sups that wander to my area to get ppl for their area.

    State law here requires 30 min break after 6 hours. In 9 peaks...i've never gotten a 20 min break.
  14. In our center, it's because every Monday during peak, they're advancing a trailer or 2. I had 1 bulk stop that had 45 forecasted on those sheets & there were actually 65. Also a stop with just over 10 that I've never delivered to, & the guy was like, "We usually just pick those up at your center."

    Richard Harrow Would you pay a dime to see this?

    Had a great day going until I had to bail out management from a very serious situation. On the bright side, I do believe I may have parlayed that into a 4-day weekend starting on 12/25. We'll see.

    The usual blown out cluster "f" in my truck complete with an odd assortment of misloads. Just another peak day.

    Has peak started? Seems like a normal week to me, oh wait, I did get a couple of extra minutes of OT yesterday, so maybe it has.

    Yesterday was a record for #s. Seemed better than yesterday this AM, a slightly less #.
