    I see Macy's is guaranteeing Christmas delivery this year. If your order isn't received by Christmas you get a gift card for the value of your order up to $100.
    Macy's order by date is 12/23.

    Amazon? 12/23

    Lots of others are doing the same dumb thing...
    Victoria's secret
    JC Penney
    Pottery Barn
    etc, etc.

    They'll never learn.

    UPSJedi2112 I blast Rush in my truck.

    We've been okay so far here. Volume not too bad, weather has been pretty agreeable, but a huge last minute crush like this looks likely to become, will totally wreck the whole peak. Can't wait. It'll be all our fault , too.

    PCM yesterday, the boss said that the plan they are expecting would have us all running 11-11.5 hour days next week.

    Then he tossed out the grenade.

    "My bosses think we should work Sunday the 21st. I told them we did not have to."

    Now that it is out there, my bet is that it is mentioned daily until it is a reality. I am betting dimes to dollars that we are working the 21st.

    Surprisingly very few of the women I delivered those Victoria's Secret packages looked anything like those models. They looked a lot more like Lane Bryant types.
