Get ready and bend over
Monday wasn't to bad.
It won't really hit until Wed or T5hurs.
I can't even imagine right now. I started off today almost at my peak day numbers from last year, and punched out around 7:45 PM. Early, considering we still have 15 drivers still out when I was leaving. Remember when Peak was a gradual thing?
745? Lol. It's 9 22 and I just got home eating "dinner". Lol.
With a helper I'm usually done and gone by 5:45. I kept this kid 6 hours too! It's only gonna get worse in a few days. Huzzah!
I had 75 stops and I worked over 12. I'm tired
You a runner?
I'm bent over.
haha. I can't even run to the toilet when I have the s, and you think I'd do it for work?
Which means there's only another hour u could of worked. Can't get much worse right.
Yea I guess they could have given me 80
just take comfort in the fact no matter what you do,it wont be good enough
I worked 11 hours today. Tomorrow could suck, 10 inches of snow forecast by tomorrow eve.
80 stops im praying to god i dont have over 250 by weeks end lol.
Lucky! 80 stops wouldn't even be considered a half day on most trips in my center. I almost started peak at 250 today. It's only gonna get worse. Trips with over 300 stops will be rolling by weeks end.
know the 300 stops thing. 313 was my max ever about 11 years ago. Was my first peak and was only a temp driver then. Way to get thrown into the fire huh lol.
Holy crap yeah. I broke the 3oo mark once, and was out till 9:45 PM. There's no way I ever want to do that again. Keep me in the low 200's with a helper all day, and I'll be happy. Just not today, because that was a mess.
I feel ya dude. 250 is about as high as i wanna go this year. Thats not too bad considering 1 road on my route thats only like a mile long will have at least 150 stops on it normally during peak. Its super tight so not too bad. Just wanna see how idiotic these numbnutts doing the dispatch freak everything up. I made plans for 5 routes including mine for the dispatch dude. Lets see if he does the smart thing and follow the plans that should be used lol.
I had to get a grievance ready to turn in tomorrow, and have a talk with my Manager tonight before I went home on what should be done tomorrow, and if I'll be back on my trip. The problem is, is they waited until Peak to have a new driver only trained on one trip. Mine. Now they're shocked that I don't want to run a trip I had years ago because I'm not up for 250+ a day, when mine went out with 160 today, and will probably stay in the 160-175 range throughout peak. I'm not a young guy anymore. I'd like to run the trip I bid specifically because my old can't hang with the young kids running now-a-days.
