    They told us today to be prepared. I honestly wish they would just ask who wants to take their vacation lol I’d take my 4 weeks and chill at home. I did hear that lay-off would be based on building/company seniority which if true I should be good. But we will see.

    as soon as this :censored2: is over we are going to be swamped with work.businesses will be playing catch up.our building is running split routes now to get the work done. i`m thinking things are going to slow down in coming weeks.
     
  3. It's going to get bad because people are going to run out of money but they buy $7000 worth of toilet paper, when they aren't working.

    Swamped till we catch up. Than businesses will feel the pinch of all the unemployed and so will we.

    Doesn’t really say. Just says you can bump a preloaded. Work preload/twilight to make up your hours etc. does not say anything if it’s based on company seniority or fulltime senority. I could also be stupid and not be able to read correctly. All these are possible

    We were close to setting up spurs a week or so ago from panic related shipping. The Governor announced around noon and then shut down non-essential businesses Mon. night at midnight. I couldn't believe the loads today. Maybe a coincidence. I will let you know what tomorrow looks like.

    They are to bump the LOWEST driver, not just pick any route.

    Bingo. Mgmt doesn’t know sheet about the contract. Asking an on car about the contract, you might as well ask a customer on the road.

    My building has pretty normal volume numbers for this time of year -- even with some local business closures.

    All of the restaurants, etc. are open but selling take-out food/beer or most are delivering until this virus mess is over.

    All Walmarts, convenience stores, banks, Dollar Generals, gas stations, car-repair places, walk-in health clinics, hospitals, and post offices are still open for business where I live.
    That's like everything. Still doing my normal everyday routine for grocery shopping, etc.

    This flu won't/can't last too long.
    Sure it may spread and we will all inevitably get sick, but we will heal, and it WILL disappear at some point, and we'll forget all about it.
