"Hold down" is a term used by rurual carriers when a sub is running a route during the regular carrier's extended absence. Tomorrow is the last day of my hold down of Route 7. It wound up lasting 3+ weeks. The regular carrier will be back on Monday.
That doesn't mean I'm done working. I will be back on my old route, #5, on Monday. And I found out today that the carrier on route 4 is taking Tuesday off. Since his sub is away on vacation, I'll get the call.
I'm pretty tired. I had my first day off in three weeks on Wednesday and all it did was make me realize how tired I actually am. But today was payday... need I say more?
