    Monday week two: We set our hub record again!
    Set it last Tuesday and broke it today.

    Poor new driver with the box truck...

    Could not fit a single post office bag into the box truck, plus everything stacked out (early on attempting to save room) never made it into the box either.

    Wasn't that bad other than not having accurate bulk sheets. Zero room in the dog house to stack out. Almost got to the point of "smoking boxes" stacked under the heaters.

    Week two! Good times.

    Our preload started at midnight from what I heard. So theoretically our trucks should be loaded and done.

    I'm not holding my breath.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    We will see but I expect Monday to be super heavy then for volume to drop

    In my hub its easier for preload to be finished early on Mondays because all the trailers are already there.

    Excepting not to be done until after 10AM tomorrow.

    Yeah, it's going to be a devastating big brown beat down. That would be a killer name for a funk classic....big brown beat down

    Preload ended way early at our facility today. Sorting stopped at around 7:15a and most people were leaving by 8am. Started at 12:30.

    I left at 9:40 today. driving a 23foot rental... 3 stops at walmart, 1 bulk at the dock and 2 up front. Straight up BS.

    i hate Walmart. I enter the dock and the first thing the dude says is I hate my life, hence whybi never shop there.

    Did you walk through the store to deliver the inside deliveries or drive the rental around to the front? I think I would just walk it off.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    The only reason preload was done by 730 is they ran a Saturday sort...the trucks were half full already when we started at midnight.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Your prediction was right for today. I don't know if they advanced loads but we were very heavy today. We have some snow moving in tomorrow afternoon through Wednesday which should make things interesting.

    I deliver to a Walmart and walking through the store is a big no-no.
