    ...and this makes sense....force 60 drivers in with 8 hour guarantees or wait until the sort begins to see how many of those 60 you may actually need...

    Had a security guard on the route today say, “oh I guess you don’t have enough seniority to be off today?”. I said “nah, I’m making triple time today so I’m good”.

    Worked Friday. Made $825 in just under 7 hours of work. Yeah, didn’t hurt my feelings.

    I didn't do squat today (sold an old snow blower for $400). Went to town and had a couple of beers. I'm to lazy to sit down and figure exactly how much I made today. I will just say it's more than enough.

    Lots of stupid comments on this one. Make as much as you can while you're young so that when you're older you can use that money for investment, property, your own business, an education, etc. I personally want to have my own wind farm and produce clean electricity for my area. Modern-day oil wells if you will. Lots of guys in my building have invested in real estate and rent out homes, some are going to school and using their pay to fund their educations. Many are just simply saving the bulk of their checks into special savings and retirement accounts. Everybody under 40 working for this company needs to know that within ten to twenty years how we do business as well as how the rest of the world does business, could drastically change. Automated vehicles, drone deliveries, a weakening union, outside competition, etc, could change how we work in the coming decades.

    Get what you can now while you can I say.

    Adjust your W-4 or you will lose at least 1/3 of that to taxes.

    looking back, I was almost 38 when i started at UPS and prior to that with a disabled spouse and a bunch of kids was under pressure to make more money in non union jobs. never turned down extra work.
    That habit bled over to UPS for 22 plus years . Now I wish I had turned down some of the holiday or weekend work because I would have liked more time with family.
    Now they are all grown up and don't see them or the grandkids much.

    For some families, thanksgiving weekend is the only time per year the whole family gets together, enjoys each other and breaks bread together. It’s a tradition in some families. It has nothing to do with money, it has to do with principal.

    Yup, can't get that time back. I've got more than enough money, I'll take the day off and let someone else make the OT.

    You need to learn the difference between "withholding" and actual "taxes paid".
