I was dong some mental math today. Ive been a driver for a few weeks shy of 21 years. In that time, I have averaged about 300 pieces a day delivered. Thats 1500 a week, times 48 weeks per year average ( I get 6 weeks vacation now but in the beginning it was only 2), equals 72,000 packages per year. Over 21 years, that puts the total number of parcels I have delivered at 1,512,000. A million and a half. I have also averaged around 200 pieces picked up. Over 21 years, that comes out to just over a million. That is a total of 2 1/2 million packages handled. The really scary number to think about....is the weight. I have an industrial park on my route that gets some serious pig iron. My old route was even worse. An average piece weight of, say, 15 pounds means I have handled something like 35 million pounds of freight during my career. I need some Advil.
