But seriously, good post. Lotta seasonals looking at the BC boards right now who might be looking to stick around. A lot of us who have been in the business for a long time take information like this for granted. Doesn't mean it's not useful.

Every once in awhile if you got stuck with something off your normal route we would put WL 1 on a package. I don't know if management was playing along or just too plain stupid to realize it stood for Won't Locate 1 but I never heard of anyone getting in trouble for using it.

You old timers had it so easy.

Minimum acceptable requirements

Used to laugh when the boss said we need to talk about your MAR

Ok, whatever
