    Stick a finger down your throat and vomit on the center manager.

    What I'm saying is don't chance the 8 hour request, say nothing and call in that day.

    If it is unsafe, take pictures and report them and the situation to osha. And also refuse to work in the area until it is appropriately safe. Too bad we don't have any union to help support safety issuds.

    This has always boggled my mind. Trucks stacked out for hours and miraculously, about 30 mins. before start time, dispatch decides that would be a good time to "add a few more routes." It takes another 30 mins. just to dig into the mess of packages to find all the add cuts and by the time all is said and done, everyone is leaving 30 mins. late.

    Not sure either since bean counters and Orion seem to run the horse and pony show

    Working? We all went out with 8 hour days since its Halloween. Apparently its the one time a year dispatch can actually make almost every route make sense. Almost.

    What's the problem? They took off your 8000 shelf so you could have an easy 8 hr day.

    Screw that.

    I use 8hr requests for days I am looking for OT.

    You get a three for one.

    1. OT
    2. Grievence Money for going over 8.5
    3. 8 hr request back

    It is easy money.

    We were promised the same -- "We've got approval to add routes so you guys can get home before dark!" I walked in and didn't find the board for the bid route I've been covering. Spoke with the dispatcher, "Oh yeah, we cut that route."

    I went out in the blind on a town and country route. Got my last country stop off as the sun disappeared. Then into rural subdivisions without streetlights and plenty of costumed kids running about. Houses were all 100 ft or more off the street, mailboxes clustered together, so I was going slow as hell. Trace would've had me hunting addresses along a 65mph two-lane highway with no shoulder well after dark, but I got those off when breaking for pickups. 11 hours and change all said and done.

    And several drivers were out later than me.

    Misthios I love my job. Don't you?

    Sounds like my building. Keep pushing start times back so maybe preload can get done and they still can't get done. I'm waiting for the 10am start time with air commits

    Yep that’s how it is here. I guess they’d rather have drivers stand around on the belt making over 36 dollars a hour instead of starting our 14 dollar per hour part timers 30 minutes earlier.

    Not nearly as much as I could've, but always preferred salty over sweet.

    Finally serving my 5 day suspension.
    2 weeks ago I asked sup to let me know when it was going to happen so I could plan on not having any money in advance. He said ok.
    Today I show up to work at 3:30 AM and he stops me at the door and says my suspension starts today.
    I guess it would have killed him to tell me that before I showed up or given me some kind of notice at all. I know he doesn't like me and it kind of seemed like a big ":censored2: you."

    Can't wait until I quit this place. My last day is going to go down in this center's history as "The Misload Day."

    Great job.

    Nothing sticks it to management like :censored2: over a whole bunch of drivers who just want to get home to their families...

    Wow they might be out a little later one day. What a tragedy.
    Big whoop.
    Don't really give a :censored2: about the drivers anyway, half of them are dicks just like management.

    All I know is PT sup says he "takes heat" when there are like 5 misloads. Can't wait to see what happens when I gradually start ramping them up to the double digits and then hit him with 100 or so on my last day.
    Give me other ideas to :censored2: the center over on my way out and I might change my mind.
