what are RPOs ? are you guys all motorised ? man, most routes i get are all by foot !! i have heard mtl area is a bit diff. maybe two of my routes, since starting, had CMBs, including one that was ALL CMBs when i agreed to go relief for **** laval ouest but got sent to montery.

RE hours.. if you're new, prepare yourself to cry at the bottom of some stairs or perhaps more cleverly in the inside of an apartment building at several points. they don't make it easy.

RPO. Retail postal outlet. Think a "shoppers drug mart", where you can drop off/customers pick up their parcels....

ohh, thanks ! we call them sous-bureau and pharmaprix ;). i always hear people shouting about them in the morning but i'm not quite sure what it entails. i've assumed it's what people bring back past 18h with a bar code sticker. it's always the people in the bigger trucks going on about it.

off to watch the game now, hey, hey !! !

Since everyone is so passionate about pdt (myself included) and how important itsfunctionality, we should start having a new union for it, right!?

Who is going to volunteer for the president? Anyone?? Winking Face

Anyway, am I the only one thinking 'They (CP) are apologizing and "sincerely regret", yeah right!' every time seeing this bag?

Face With Tears Of Joy

so.. i was doing my CT catalogues in fifths and saw my last fifth only had 2 homes (residences ?). so obviously i did them on the spot, i always carry a few extra circs in case of XYZ. well now i have a surplus of like 12 catalogues, after finishing my fourth and fifth fifth, and i don't think the assistant person (idk the english term) who gives them to us messed up, but i also know i didn't mess up. i wrote down every number i passed out during the week and i'm so **** confused. i'm sure they check my circs too so would they not tell me if i **** up ??

that being said : HAVE A GREAT LONG WEEKEND / EASTER ! !

The chance of getting the right amount of flyers for your route is about nil. Too many...check. Too few.....check. Right amount.....miracle....

I had a set today that the LCA wrote that it was 11 short. It turned out to be 11 over. Granted I haven't updated my edit book ever.

For me I'm pretty much doing Pink and Blue day for the them since you have to go to pink day regardless and the wow guides are going to the last bit of your blue day. Then wed I'll be putting them in orange.

I'm thinking the same thing.

Printing all pages in colour isn't cheap, it's nit even magazine, giving away to people for free, paying sh!t load of money to CP to deliver.

But seriously, how many people actually look at that catalogue or buy something??

Then you see their TV commercials everywhere.

Wonder how they get all that money from...
