    realbrown1 Annoy a liberal today. Hit them with facts.

    The UPS schedule says:
    ****Delivery of air and international shipments only. Normal pickup of ground, air and international shipments.
    So anyone know what's the deal.
    Usually it's a very light day. Lots of R-days given. But no ground deliveries?

    Usually it's a regular day. We don't make pickups on 12/24 so it's just cleaning up the mess. I plan on using a vacation day.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    I plan on working 12/21 so I can take 12/26 off.

    I may be wrong but I think you will be paid for any remaining personal and/or sick days this week and thus will not have any left to take that day.

    Putting up the drywall day. Lots of screws going in as routes are cut and pickups have to be made. Sure, you can do your regular route and be fine, but that won't happen. No, a split from your route will be on someone else, as you will have to go over to the next route to do stops and pickups.

    Bet it's easier than you think. I think they'll be backing off their aggressiveness of cutting routes, you just never know the volume that day will bring. With last years Xmas fail by ups I think things have changed.

    You guys are missing my point. This is my 27th peak, so I know what we have done in the past.
    But the UPS schedule says NDA and international deliveries only and regular pick up service. That's different than we have done in the past.
    Why no ground deliveries?

    Because they were all supposed to have been delivered on the 24th. No feeders to move the ground Christmas Eve night.

    Are they moving Chistmas Eve day? If they are, we will have ground volume on Friday besides send agains.
