    Some of the most miserable people I know are wealthy, they can never have enough. Some of the happiest people I know don't have the 'stuff' or the money, but they have a lot of real friends.

    I'm dreaming of peak that I can spend more time with my family. We know that won't happen but atleast peak is almost a week shorter this year :)

    Money is a tool, I use it as a tool to financial independence so I can enjoy life more.

    I know of a lot more people that say "I wish I could leave UPS but I need to keep working because I didn't save any money". People need to stop demonizing people who want to work more, otherwise you get the entitlement generation we are dealing with now.

    I think it sad when drivers that have been here for 10+ years still need to live off OT.

    Ask your sup to give you more work. When you get the hours you need try to get your bills in order so you don't NEED the money, save some so you can retire with dignity.

    For every hour of OT I work, it's 1.5 hours less I need to work later.

    Your not guaranteed OT only 8 hrs a day. Asking to be sent out with 12 hrs of work a day isn't going to happen.

    It did a few years back at my hub. Some people almost got rolled in the parking lot for it. 3 asked for it, got it, and kept 4 FT drivers laid off a month longer than they should have been.

    Actually, if he requests 12, he'll get sent out with 14 and be expected back in 10. Then, as soon as he screws up, he'll have 0.

    Feel free to look up the threads about drivers not getting 8 hours vs those filing 9.5. If you ask for more work they'll most certainly give it to you as long as you're giving a fair days work. They won't give someone who's constantly over allowed more work however.
