    I don't think I'll get off, but the end of last week was 'light.' I guess to them light means there are no packages coming down for 5-10 minutes and then you get blasted with packages. Ehhh I doubt I'll be off :)

    Hey all, new poster here. Driver for 9 years, 6 years as a part time slave with benefits. "They" tell us, in Gods armpit, (Michigan :happy2:) that volume will be heavy on Tuesday the 1st. Flooding in Iowa is making for some transit woes. How heavy you ask? Well let me consult the magic 8 ball we call PAS................ Says "not sure, ask later"

    AHHHHHHHH PAS......... It'll change the world.

    yeah volume is light in our center too. The Stupidvisor was telling people who didn't make seniority to call in to see if there was any work available. Less people and lighter volume doesn't make my job an easier.

    Yea yesterday(Monday) we were very light. This morning(Tuesday) we had a little extra, but of course not an earlier start time. Then all of a sudden we had an extra trailer that had to be unloaded. No one seemed to know where it was from, apparently it was supposed to show up the day before. They knew about it late last night but decided not to bump the start time up to compensate for it. Sooooo, we didnt get out till 9:30 this morning.

    Last week was light for most drivers in my centre except for me, of course. Management were offering drivers afternoons off - I got Wednesday! Woo-hoo!

    With Canada Day today and the 4th coming up I imagine next week should slow down a bit. Happens every year and hey, I'm not complaining.
  19. same here.....
