The company can’t even give you eight when you request it. But you think they can give you an 8.6 plan? Lmao. You’re being fooled into bringing it in early.

Yes they did say we were going to do it for a few weeks and is now extended to other centers just like you guys I laughed it off no different then Orion looks like this is really going to be implemented just thought I would give you a heads up oh by the way a straggler what I should have said to clarify it was obviously you will always have routes that run into issues on call errors heavy pick up volume that ends up going over that number but for the most part all routes are in early

In order to make 8.6, I’d need a 6.1 plan. What do Mall routes get?
