    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Routes going out with peak number stops already. No trucks to run the extra routes they need. No extra drivers even if they had the trucks. Helpers to try and cover up the understaffing. Drivers being called in to preload because they didn’t expect this much volume.

    And of course management scrambling like it’s the first peak season ever. Gotta love it y’all. Enjoy the checks the next 10 weeks.

    Not where I’m at. We got PVD’s ballin out and taking all the apartments. Some full timers have been sent home because of over staffing and PVDs

    BadIdeaGuy Not mine, but it needed immortalizing.

    Lucky. We've got an abundance of trucks, seasonal drivers everywhere. More rental trucks than a preloader's knees can take. No action to be had, yet.

    Gotta love the first of 1 million "Late night" comments I got last night. Wouldn't be a late night if you could drag your fat lazy ass down to target occasionally

  6. Tell the truth. You are just upset that you have to work 5 days in a row.
  7. We sure get enough of it.
  8. How can a full timer get sent home when a seasonal is working?

    Richard Harrow Deplorable.

    Yeah, I'm about 30 stops under a mid-August plan today. If its peak, I'll gladly take it.

    Is that because you want to be alone in close quarters with a ton of strange men?
