Hi Guest. I just wanted to let you know that there will be some service disruptions here over the next few days. We're moving to a new server on Monday and then the latest version of xenforo is going to be installed. ~ cheryl

    Quite a few retired feeder drivers do that here.
    I guess retirement isn't all it's cracked up to be?

    They may plan on 8 hour day, but how many might only see 4 or 5 hours?
    Imagine these folks being surprised they have to work in the cold or a bad storm!

    No clue I heard today we had 2 PVD's out on road that were meeting an on road.

    But feeder driving isn't really work. I'm talking package drivers who go back to work peak. Those dudes have brain damage

    It will mean less helpers for drivers. 21 vs 14. Riding with stranger all day vs driving your own car. Show up on time vs show up whenever.
     
  14. We have 5 rentals at my center, have for the past two weeks

    We've been using rentals for months now. On a heavy day we run 29 routes and we have 6 rentals right now, that's how badly we need package cars!

    Same here.. 3 drivers (PVD) that I know of.. no idea how they are getting away with it this early. Steward said he confronted the center manager & his reply was “training for peak” lol

    Yep. We short on cars too. Have 5-6 rentals(last 2 months) here cause South Dakota won’t give anymore pkg cars up.
