    I talked to a Driver sup today about the impossible orion numbers on a said bid drivers route i was covering today. My argument was that the said drivers orion numbers for the route was insane and needs to be changed. The driver sup then pulled me in the office and showed me his numbers on said route from a previous day. All i can say is that i was completely astonished by the numbers he put up. He did 25 more stops than me by noon and was able to take his whole hour lunch break when i cant on his route. This just embarrassed me and i just left the office thinking wow im slow.

    Not to mention he was a older driver like 50 years old and im 17 years younger. He also recovered from knee surgery some months back but anyway no wonder i cant keep up with the route this dude is like a surgeon with it.

    Im a country driver and this route wanted me to have 69 stops off by 11:45 with my last air being my 69th stop thats do by 12:00. In a town in NC that i covered. I thinking to myself what the heck is he doing. I normally do 35 maybe by that time following methods and the speed limit.

    What the other driver does should not be your concern.

    I’ve literally never had a conversation with my Sup’s about over/under even when I was qualifying. Maybe it’s just my center... Their numbers and metrics are purely made up and who cares what the other driver does?

    Its not that i care what the other driver does on the route. It is the fact that like you said their numbers and metrics are bs and i was telling the sup that, and that the numbers are insane and cant be done. But this bid driver is doing it to my surpise and that was his justification for why the numbers are the way it is for the route and thats why i hate doing that route.

    But he been doing that same route for 25 sum years and i only do it every once in the blue moon. If i did the same route everyday i guess i can do the insane numbers the sup was talking about. They just have me everywhere and i cant really get a set routine like a driver who does the samething everyday i guess.

    There's a reason he had knee surgery, and will likely need a full replacement by the time he retires. But, never underestimate the power of route knowledge and repetition.

    :censored2: 'em. The moment you let that stuff go to your head is the moment you stop paying attention to the things that are really important out there and you become more vulnerable to accidents that they'll have had nothing to do with.

    He probably doesn't check his Facebook and Intagram status during the day as much as you do.

    We have a guy that will go out with about 115-120 stops on a daily basis. That will last him til 1:30-2:00. Then he sits at his pickups til they start at 3. My 1st time on the route I had 40 stops left after pickups. No clue how he does it. I couldn’t keep his pace if I tossed packages out the door without stopping
