Do you want to get paid to lose weight? Well I never thought about it till recently, but that is what I am doing! That’s right the FedEx weight loss plan. I started working for them in October of last year. I have lost about 25 pounds and went down 2 pants sizes!
All the walking I do, delivering packages, plus running from dogs lol. My most recent exercise was on Saturday when 5 knee high collies got after me. One nipped me but a swing at his head with my scanner (I missed) got him to back off. The dogs got into a frenzy and started fighting each other while I lumbered ( Im to fat to sprint) back to the van!
But Fedex pays pretty well and I get free exercise so it’s a good gig.
I worked 54 hours in 4 days! I am more worn out than a set of jumper cables at a Redneck Bar on a Saturday Night. Wonderful driver that I am, I backed my FedEx van into a muddy part of a driveway. An hour and a half and a $90 Tow Bill later I got out.
We did have a driver get very badly hurt in a wreck this week. She rolled her truck and hit a tree. She has a fractured skull and injured her back. So I guess I can’t complain too much about being tired.
My real job is as a FedEx Relief driver. That means I was a temp driver hired to work until Christmas Peak was over. They have now decided to keep me on at least a while longer. Today I was sent into an area that I know well and enjoy doing. I did 66 stops and was done by 4 pm. (started at 6:45 am, sorting and loading) in areas I don’t know as well, 66 stops would have taken me until 7 or 8 pm. So today was a good day. I will say this, and I am not brown nosing. I have the best set of bosses that I have ever had. I made alot of screwups, including getting my van stuck 2 days in a row and needing a toe truck (gulp) they didn’t fire me or even yell at me so they are good bosses.
Since I work for FedEx I have altercations with dogs quite often. Recently I was bitten on the leg (no major damage) but I really dislike people who let those beasts run loose to bite people.
