haha ( sorry)

I find the worst thing is wet pressure treated wood, that stuff is terrible.
Yeah, that shit is bad too. A few houses from where I tumbled, a customer has a porch made of PTW. :rolleyes: Good thing I have a fat ass! Smiling Face With Open Mouth

I learned the hard way too. Was cutting between houses and they had a raised piece of pt wood as a divider, I stepped on it at an angle and *whoosh*. Have had a couple of close calls since.

These conversations remind me of last summer, there's this wacky place, they have a mailbox next to the side door and there's a water valve, too and they have patio stones just for that area.

The stones were wet when I was delivering and boom! slipped and hit pretty badly on them. OUCH!!!
The house owner came out from the back and saw me there and guess what, the next day I was called by my supervisor telling me the house owner complained that I cracked one of the stones!

But I DID remember there was already a crack even before the incident so I protested but not that I had a picture or anything to prove...
I went to the house the next day and talked to the owner, he was like 'don't worry about it, it's all good' so he probably wanted to see if he can get something out of it??
Like expecting CPC pays for the replacement of the stone???

People are weird, man!

sounds like a real *******
Haha, you bet!
I've seen him before that and never really liked him, always complaining about something...
But hey, we always see lots of interesting characters, which makes our job somewhat interesting, without them, it'd be soooo boring! Face With Stuck-out Tongue

You know, I was thinking the same thing and asked about that to the supervisor but he said I can't do that! Ugh!

Your supervisor is ......soft. The canada post code states that the mailbox must not be further than the front door. I once had a man that wanted to move their box to the back door. I said you can't. My supervisor was "soft". I said fine. I will tell all my customers that we are allowing them to have back yard delivery, and every one that changes will be sending out a supervisor to increase my time values. Guess what decision was made then?........

Haha, yes, yes, I hear you!
Mind you that I don't own this walk or anything.
If it's my walk, I'd defnitely press harder.
Seriously I have no idea why the walk owner doesn't complain about that.

I wake up relatively happy every morning.

100 sick days a year...must be a typo.
Cupw is to focused on future employees, deadbeats and the rural side.
What a 12 cent raise not good enough for you? As the competition couriers will be making almost ten dollars more an hour than cpc delivery agents in 4 years.

Probably bankable sick days accumulated over many years just like Canada Post had before 2011. Many employees had hundreds of sick days banked up from what they've told me. It's just a quote in a sun article, which is some of the least trustworthy reporting around.
