    My center I’m a coverage driver I can run a different route 3 days in a row and still file a grievance I’ve done it and been paid for it and no I’m not at top rate.

    I'm having an easy week. Been doing nothing but playing with the grandkids and ordering trampolines, anvils and furniture from Amazon.

    What does rotating cover drivers have to do with not filing? If you’re over, you’re over.

    I think half of our delivery drivers came in between 10PM and 11PM. Pushing the 14 hour limit. Rolled 8 trailers yesterday. Don't know how many drivers will have enough hours for Friday let alone for Saturday.

    Wow. One of the only helpers to say yes said he pulled in 12 hours yesterday. That was after his 3-5 hr shift in the ams at my building.

    They started calling for helpers at 730 as our shift was ending.

    We may be poor PTers but some people do have their priorities on right. Out of 80 of us, 40 signed up initially. 4-5 went for awhile. Now it's consistently 1-3 diehards.

    Apparently they are pulling high seniority guys off their air business routes and getting them into residential as early as 9am. Usually resi is 12pm to 1pm. Lots of Pissed off drivers losing their seniority routes.

    We're sacrificing so much and giving Amazon a hell of a discount. It doesn't add up.

    “Priorities right”


    Some like to make money and that’s fine. As a part timer I would have jumped all over the chance to help for a week or two in the middle of summer.

    One of your stops was at the Proctologist, and he used sandpaper?
    Was that the rough stop you had?

    The one stop which is a killer where I have to park on the opposite side of the road and cross the street by foot to get to the Dunkin Donuts.

    Nope never! Could, in your infinite wisdom, please enlighten me in the quest for an educational schooling?
