Hi Guest. I just wanted to let you know that there will be some service disruptions here over the next few days. We're moving to a new server and then the latest version of xenforo is going to be installed. ~ cheryl

    I got last stop off at 6:00, 158 total which is a normal stop count for me. I saw two gray Amazon vans on my area instead of one. I usually see two or three regional contractor white vans too. I did notice some Amazon being delivered out of personal cars today at several of my stops. We start 15 minutes later tomorrow, they have had Bid Lists up for Helpers this week.

    I imagine you're kidding unless it's 400 stops in one skyscraper. There's no truck that could even hold that many stops unless it's one package per stop.

    Netsua 3:16 Stop being a little bitch

    I finished my route at 6, took 7 off a neighbor and rolled in at 7:05. To my surprise 90% of the bays were full. I have a feeling we're going to get absolutely murdered tomorrow. Packing extra snacks. It's gonna be lit. Might even have an energy drink who knows....

    We have jammed over 200 stops into a P 500. A lot of Amazon envelopes. You could have 50 stops in one tote box.

    Only in December do routes go out with more than 200 here and we serve two cities. I guess you're in a big city with a million office buildings or something.

    400 stops is insane. I remember the first day peak really hit last year and I had 270 stops in a p1.....I doo dooed in my pants when I walked up to the truck. Smalls everywhere. The most intimidated I've ever been. I skipped so many stops because I couldn't find a damn thing.
    400? How is that even possible. It doesn't seem possible

    You get a little over half your route in the morning. Then a very large uhaul drives around giving drivers the other half starting around 12.

    Our homes are fairly close together. If you're able to sort your truck and have a decent helper sometimes it can be done.

    Clocked out a 6 and 6:30 thru two days. Expecting the overcompensating the next three. They’ve already asked for extra Saturday help.
