Have you ever had to deliver a route the day after the previous driver wanted to get off early? It usually takes a day or two to deliver all his send agains and take care of customer complaints.
Getting done early is fine as long as its within the confines of the methods and the contract. The people who do this are few and far between under PAS/EDD.
You need to get out more often...That's just not true in the places I've worked. I get done early and help 1 to 3 drivers almost everyday...Have been on PAS off and on for 7 or 8 years.
I'm well aware of your storied past of being a hall of fame all-star UPS driver. You'll probably be the first UPS driver to be inducted into the circle of honor based on management recommendations and not safe driving. I pray every night that I'll be as efficient as you someday and be able to help my management team even out their dispatch and make their numbers.
Like I said, if it's done within the confines of the contract and the methods -- there is no problem. You jump in and get defensive, I wonder why.
People that continously bring up the contract and methods are the same ones that need those two to save their jobs. We don't need a pat on the back every time we do our job to our ability
The reason I don't like taking them is because after lunch, my body says it's time for a siesta, not five more hours of work. I can never get back up to the same speed as before lunch.
Here's what ticks (no pun intended) me off about the guys who skip their lunch and get done early. Everything an OMS needs covered on their route gets sent to the route next to them. So, you skip your lunch, and you're home still getting paid (because you're guaranteed 8 hours) and I'm doing your on-calls, going to your pac mail, chasing all the pick ups that call in because you picked them up to early in an effort to get home before Oprah starts. It's not a paper route. We are service providers. You can't provide service from your couch.I have no idea what PASS/EDD are. Fill me in. And yes I do skip my lunch most days. See no need in taking my lunch if I am gonna be done at 3:30 and getting paid 8 hrs.
