I (along with most people reading this right now I'd imagine due to the post-holiday fallout) had a crazy dispatch today. 190 stops in 5 different route areas as a split route, most of it woods & countryside. The truck for this route was used for early-AMs so it got back late resulting in me leaving 40 minutes after my start time. The computer said it was about 15 stops over the max. This split route had windshield time of over 30 minutes to get to one of the sections from one of the other sections and about 20 minutes another time, plus a couple smaller "connecting" drives, plus about a total of 45 minutes of drive time for the to and from the center. By the way, most of the driveways were a few football fields long and couldn't be driven up. Sooo, you now have most of the background. When I saw the dispatch this morning I told my sup "see you at 11pm" and he gave me static.... Anyway, the point of this post was the message I got from OMS tonight. "____ (on car sup) wants you in by 9pm." I couldn't think of a good smartass response at the time. What would you have sent back?
