    My manager said tomorrow he wants to ride with me on my route, why would this happen? Any ideas why they would want to do that? It’s never happened to me before

    Could be as simple as like my company. Corporate policy states management has to do x amount of ride alongs and evaluations per month.

    Lots of is would welcome that. It may be that he wants to see things from a drivers perspective rather than thru the lens of a office idiot that doesn’t have a clue. Maybe wants to see how customers are and other minor details maybe something going on with a customer and he wants first hand knowledge

    Thanks for replying, I was really nervous about this. I’m not sure if they’re timing me or what (I take an hour long break in my 12 hour route sometimes) I’m afraid this might get me fired.

    Well, if you are worried you will get in trouble for time card theft, you might not want to commit said theft if that's what you mean. If you think you are simply taking too long for lunch, well if you aren't meeting your windows because of it, again that's on you.

    Otherwise, look at it as training. You can't know if you are doing something wrong in the companies eyes if they never tell you it's wrong.

    If it was your custom to bring A Game to every game, you will be fine. If it was your custom to slack, it’s going to to a long nerve wracking day.
