Today was my first work day at the Ludington Daily News mail room. Don't think mail. Think stuffing newspapers with all those advertising flyers you get every weekend.
Let's just say this is an amazing machine when it is working right. Today wasn't one of those days.
It can add up to 8 inserts to a paper. Actually, more, because if several have already been pre-bundled they can count as one.
We did about 10 different runs for different papers, with a total of about 13,000 papers stuffed with inserts for Saturday delivery.
The machine acted very very badly today, making everyone a bit nuts. They assured me it isn't usually like this.
It was interesting, and since it's all new and I am still learning things I didn't find it boring. However, 11.5 hours on my feet means I'm more than ready for bed.
Same time next week.
