    Our Preload is starting a whole 15 minutes earlier on Thursday.
    It seems the same team responsible for Christmas preparations is totally on top of this.

    Most of prime does not roll in until wednesday-friday this week. Regardless. Gave my buddies a good 9:20AM start time. Almost the latest people to leave. A good load late is almost always better than a bad load early, but having to kick out air for an hour with no other time is still annoying af.

    I just had one of those days where everything was going right the whole morning. Quite amazing actually. Every business was there and not busy. No cars in most of the parking lots as it was early. No bulk stops today (highest piece count in the first 70 was 6 pieces.) I could walk through my car front to back without tripping on anything. My largest piece today was a bicycle.

    It was just one of those rare, good days. I'm bringing my loader breakfast tomorrow morning.

    Like a tree sloth. There's a guy qualifying on an adjacent route and he's not getting it. I've had several 8pm nights going to bail him out on day 18 or so.
