July 4th weekend is going to be like...
Based on some of the conference calls and emails I've seen, that started a week ago.
may i ask?
Only bad things will happen that week.....
I turned in my 7/3 closings list yesterday. It was much longer than for any other "holiday". So glad I am on vaca that week.
On vacation that week. Dang it, I guess I'll miss out on all the excitement.
The 6th will be much worse.
And the 7th and the 8th. 1/4 of routes cut, everyone working gets 10 or 11 hour days. Except for Dave of course.
The 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th will be normal working days.
Not here. That whole week will be a giant cluster due to the "large drop in volume". Happened last time the 4th was on a Saturday and happens every year the week after Good Friday.
I have traditionally brought more missed stops back on July 3rd or 5th than I do on December 19th or 20th. Self-inflicted service failures due to forced stupidity on the part of my management team are a lot harder for me to stomach than simply being maxed out during peak season.
Can someone explain what the maddness is about? I've always been off the week of the 4th.
Some idiot bean-counter will demand that each center hit an impossible Stops Per Car metric in response to all of the closures on Friday the 3rd. The route-cutting will take place with a chain saw rather than a scalpel, and those routes that remain will go out the door with absolutely hopeless dispatches. It will be a complete cluster-coitus. Self-inflicted service failures at their finest!
The beer I gave you is the one I will open in your honor that Friday evening.
Well now that is just plain old cruel.
Our dispatcher told me the plan for the 3rd will be the lowest number of routes going out that our center has ever had . The conference calls and plans are starting.Idiots
Are you still here?
I'm still on the active roster.
That hasn't kept you from taking your ball and going home before. Do you need some more BOG references?
