Where Are You Shopping Today?

1 more post office not terribly far from home, which works for me because I am worn out from yesterday's almost 400 mile route!

There were some nice bonuses up there this month. I still wouldn't drive all over for them.
I used to schedule a Mexican Food FF place up there. Reimbursement only no bonuses. It was not easy job to get somebody to do Eastern WA in January and February.

Route of bonused shops in the high desert today. Banks, cell phone stores, a post office, & a drive-thru.

Colville and Oroville? Chelan and Leavenworth? I talked with the scheduler about those USPS shops.. I just wasn't going to drive the passes for those..

Actually I live near the state line, and my route was in central OR. I had my eye on Leavenworth and Chelan, but I wasn't able to get a high enough bonus for the distance.

Happily shopping the Pacific Northwest. Shopping since 2013 and editing since 2018 smiling smiley
Will try to get out long enough to do my last 2 January shops. It was too cold yesterday to be safe, at least for me. Schools here are on 2 hour delayed opening due to slick roads this morning. Nearby school systems are closed! But I need not cross that territory today.

Oddly enough, we expect temps in the low 60s early next week.

Shopping from the Carolinas to New York
Have video cam; will travel

Poor customer service? Don't get mad; get video.
Today brings a Habit burger with the best onion rings, no, you don't have to have fries here, anything you want, and it's 1/2 mile from home...so many restaurants, so little time.....

Live consciously....
Phone shops. About 12 of them today, on average $13 (cdn) pay out. Most to Canadian government offices.
I had an apartment shop set for today, call and visit. After multiple attempts all week, I got permission to ask for the target.

I go for a walk every day at lunch. Due to the low temperatures today, I did not plan on walking. I asked for another extension for the shop, explaining why. The scheduler tells me that the client no longer has the property and the shop will be cancelled.

I look at the job board today and the same property is there with due dates early next week.

Self assign done.

Tomorrow is Ace hardware and Shell.

I've done a few routes through the Tri-Cities and into Hermiston... I don't get over there much in the winter - the passes are just too unpredictable. Of course, if the money is there.... My USPS routes last week were both up I-5 through Bellingham....

Fine dining

More fine dining on Monday. I need to decrease the amount of these fine dining shops! They are all I do now.
Hi, how easy/hard are the Habit Burger assignments? Any suggestions? Newbie here, trying to decide if I should take them. There are so many around me, unfortunately just found the MSP today. Thanks.
They are easy, and the instructions are very clear.... best part... you can order what you want
Their easy, just follow directions, they are specific about certain things, but very nice to work with, and their scheduler is the best.....the food is good.

Wow, that seems strange. Which msc?
eye, this was with EPMS. It wasn't strange; she straight up lied. Now the job is back on the board and I got it.

I had an ACE hardware shop today. My department was paint. I ended up leaving with a $5 set of pliers and a new home improvement idea.

Strange that they'd lie. They have the best schedulers, sorry that happened to you.
Is it possible that the property really was sold and the group that purchased it is a different EPMS client who then immediately ordered more shops?

I do a ton of work for EPMS and have seen properties sold from one client to another. It's never happened while I had one assigned to me, but it could...

2 Pollo Locos today that I forgot to do yesterday. Not pleased with myself since I'd planned on staying in PJs all day.
ETA I was able to reschedule one of them, which was not available to do last night. smiling smiley

Not returning to MS work until Monday. Then I have a bank phone shop and an on site loan shop, with a hefty bonus.

PEETS coffee today, a testing center on Tuesday, and a whole weekend of shops in Pittsburgh this weekend. Yay!
Yeah, they were sold. I just looked at their website. The new company shops its communities.

I like their food. I did a lot of them when I was furloughed.

I like PJ days even better.
