A Blitzkrieg of Boxes

...continues . Yesterday nearly a fifth of our workforce called in sick, I was, for several hours, the only person processing the "irregulars"....that's parcels that are really big, sharp edged, cutty, painful, and/or 70-150 pounds. This is normally a six person job and usually doesn't involve me in any way, or any of my blood. Yesterday and today were complicated by the fact that a weather delay earlier in the week caused three quarters of a metric buttload of parcels to show up all at once. Today may have been the longest day I have ever worked at UPS that I was not driving. 
A few minutes ago, I got home, changed my bandages and discovered via Don that some quisling has revealed by dark secrets to the world, resulting in my being struggled against.
This could potentially complicate my plans to steal the Pueblo next summer.

I feel as sore as I was in boot camp...I'm gonna go to bed. Blogging will resume briefly this weekend.

Oh look:
A Santa hat...

Four more days! You can make it! Only four!

2 Actually, it will be about three weeks before things get back to normal. There used to be a huge drop off after Christmas, but due to a terrible and onerous recent development (the Amazon Gift Card)  things continue at a somewhat reduced but still well above average pace for about three weeks. This will of course be done without temps as any temps carried past the 24th are contractually permanent hires, leaving the inside operation slightly shorthanded.

Still, that will be far less than the next two days and a day like Friday is very unlikely.
