    Just got back to the building to see a nice pretty sign up sheet to work Christmas. I say to hell with that. As well as Saturday after.

    cosmo1 Just another internet hooligan.

    How long have you been driving?




    I'll bet unless you are at least in the middle of your seniority list you won't have a lot of choice.

    I'm right about at the bottom of the list, as far as cover drivers go in my center..Maybe ahead of 3, a few others are seasonal. Looks like I'll be driving Christmas day, triple time. Wont be too often that I'll be able to make 73.83 an hour, so why not. Is what it is at this place.

    sailfish Having way too much fun.

    Why the hell would anyone have to be driving Christmas Day? Yeah, let's ruin it for us so everyone else can have theirs. It's their fault for procrastinating so long in the first place so f* 'em.

    Life is more than packages.
     
  14. Late is late. If it was supposed to be there on Christmas eve, that sucks, but deliver it the following business day. Customers currently have no expectations of receiving packages on Christmas day. Start this now and they WILL come to expect it.

    Ask if anyone needs help. These centers that are bringing back stops. Unless every person there is working 12 hours a day they aren't running the center right.

    Welcome to the new murika!!!! Where money and useless crap trumps family and community.

    Mark my words, if people actually volunteer it will become expected in the years to come. What ever happened to business ethics and morality.

    But than again if people stopped buying useless crap the idea of planned obsolence will fail and so will the economy. Great system huh?

    Work money buy!! Work money buy. I'll be spending time doing something positive and hanging around positivity, not satisfying ups and their new ideology
