    Just git ur done safely with a sense of urgency. If you come in under 8 say at 7.95-great, if it takes you 9 so what! You getting home safely is most important everyday, let someone else worry about your numbers.

    Don't worry about it and above all don't let management push you. Don't skip your lunch or breaks. You ARE NOT helping yourself if you do. You are only helping management. If you get called into the office over their numbers, request a steward immediately. Don't let them corner you into anything. If you don't have a steward, don't talk to them. Don't let them pull the, "it's ok, this isn't disciplinary." crap. If they refuse to let you have a steward, tell them they are violating your Weingarten Rights. Look it up, it's federal law. Tell them you are doing the best you can. Make sure that you ARE doing the best that you can. TALK TO YOUR STEWARD, SOONER RATHER THAN LATER. Everyone's advice is sound, I especially agree with ROD. The sooner you figure this out, the better off you will be.

    All routes are different and so are the drivers that run them. Just keep moving and get your stops off at a steady pace, its all you can do. The stops are going to come off one at a time, just keep your stops sorted out and spend minimal time in back of the package car.
