    BadIdeaGuy Coronavirus? What coronavirus?

    I call trolling.
    Too many almost intelligent postings by the OP in his history for this to be a legit question.

    Nice try, @tireknocker.

    Me neither. I have been with UPS 20 years and have bid Thanksgiving week for 17 of those years. The 3 that I did not were horrible.

    Really?!?!?! There were a couple of years that I was the only one that had that week off. I am pretty sure that I will have to bid it at least 3 more years before I have enough seniority to not be forced the Friday after.

    As much as I have hated working the last few black Fridays, I have to admit the pay is real nice. Triple time all day, when you factor in the holiday pay, makes for a nice check right before Christmas.

    Did you say TRIPLE TIME???
    The guys in our center only get double time for hours worked.
    I worked 12 hours last black Friday for that double time.
    Those that don't work get 8 hours straight pay for sleeping in.
    Those that work also get 8 straight hours of holiday pay.
    Does you center have any holiday pay to go along with that TRIPLE time?

    I will enjoy the double time (vacation+Holiday) and take the week off.

    We get 8 hours of holiday pay for black Friday. Since we are working on a UPS holiday, in our supplement, we get double time for working a holiday. Any OT is triple time (1.5 x double time). So, when you factor in the holiday pay, we get paid triple time all day long.
