Its another peak season. How is your dispatch? I ask this question because many of our driver's dispatch are OK until 5-7 days before X-mas. My management team has done a wonderful job at dispatching the work (or getting help to the drivers over-dispatched) to this date. It is now Dec. 16th and everyone is hurting! I punched out over 10 twice in December. I think that is more than fair! Our management team has been "right on" in helping the drivers who needed it the most. Its now 1 week before X-mas. From this date forward we will all be grossly over dispatched. Its our job to suck it up and deliver the parcels. Its my 10th peak and I have always felt great Dec. 25th! I've felt like I (and my helper) accomplished something that many individuals would not think about doing. Peak really stinks, but I feel rewarded mentally and physically when its over! Relaxing on Dec. 25th makes me feel well. Merry Christmas to everyone at Brown Cafe from Browniehound. I love reading this forum!
