    Dfinitely not running during the day and am taking my breaks, yet still finishing in time for pickups...so halfway through them I get a message saying others need help and to call when I'm finished. Can I tell the center no when they ask me to go help others out at the end of the day? Otherwise I'm just going to start going slow so I'm never done in time. I'm sick of it.

    If you are getting done everyday before you start your pickups they're most definitely gonna call you to help someone.Most days I have 30 to 40 stops left after 5,and sometimes I might get. Help.

    I am always done with deliveries before I start my pickups and I can't recall the last time (since we got Orion) that I have been asked to help.

    What's it cost you in currency or your integrity not to be called for help?

    You can refuse to work as directed and never have to worry about it again!

    Why don't you get asked? What do you have over management or what do you do for management not to be asked?

    Are you special?

    I'll play the game to an extent. But if you tell me you need help and I see you rolling in at 1705 while the guy who helped you rolls in at 1900 guess what my answer will be next time.

    That used to burn me to no end, especially if the guy I helped had less seniority.

    But I also know the guys who are constantly getting screwed with dispatch and the ones who DO have an easy day but are throwing the anchor down... And the two above examples are understood by old timers like you and I but new drivers lump the two examples together... Thinking every driver who needs help is lazy... Not ok!!
