<ol><li>My 43k went down an hour, so it stays at 43. I had to make any changes by yesterday as their deadline. They only counted me and 1 aux. The aux went up a few hours. We 57 rural routes in our city, spread between 3 stations and I only know of them counting the 2 routes.</li></ol>

I got royally scr**ed with this count. I was a RCA in a sister office when 5 routes went up for bid. All of these routes had to counted in the "Special Count". All of the routes went up 1,2,3 hours. The route that I got only went up an hour and it is by far the heaviest route. While the count was going on I got a phone call saying the subs running my particular route was not having things counted. I brought this to my PM's attention and he said that shouldn't happen and as far as he was concerned he had an experienced counter doing the count (1st time counter). Anyway, making regular is supposed to be a good thing, but when they screw you right off the bat it leaves a sour taste in your mouth. I was told that the acting supervisor padded all the numbers including mine, she just couldn't see fit to pad mine as much as she did the others.
