    Show up on Friday to collect your paycheck. Your manager will appreciate it as that is the biggest call in day.

    If your out of sick days and calling off without doctors notes then probably not too many more..

    I don't think it is possible for a PT to be permanently fired. Too many are quitting. Just promise you will try and do better.

    Peak has nothing to do with it. Why do you think UPS is paying beginning PT more per hour then a beginning delivery driver. Can't find enough bodies year round.

    Geeezus. Why is it so hard to go to work? Some of us have been hopping in and out of trucks for decades and still manage to drag our carcasses to work, aches and pains and all.

    Generally speaking, you're good if you show up at least twice a month. If you have FMLA, once a year is all that is expected.

    What about all the 15:00 -18:00 pickups that drivers normally do? Do they all pile on the routes that are in?

    Maybe there should be a magic number that would trigger an automatic walk to the exit door. What would that number be?
