    i really don t wanna say it, but yes i understand what you are talking about. i used to like my job(i still do, just don't necessarily like the people i work with) i would come to work smiling for the most part, but now its difficult to keep a positive attitude i more or less dread it. i still like my customers and treat them as i always have(good) and vise versa but its certainly not as it used to be. numbers shoved down our throat, we're watching you (diad), we're following you, whatever i got nothing to hide. OPT blah blah blah. maybe if you had my trlr loaded and closed.... when i got to work i might make it out of the yard in 30 min, not the 15 min they think we should and thats if everything is closed and ready to go. but at my terminal don't hold your breath for that YOU WILL DIE.

    resi's in a 48 is nothing new, for me anyway, yep its a gamble specially when you end up havin to do them in the dark on unfamiliar streets and don t hit that branch unless you want an accident on your record, but someone, at a desk sitting in a well lit ofc wants to question you, i don't care, if i don't feel comfortable with it i won't do it, and i don't care if so and so did it before, good for them,is my safety record and job on the line not theirs, its all about safety until it messes with their numbers. and the contract WOW it can be interpreted however it fits to managements desires(i am told it will get better it is after all our first one).

    i just wanna come to work do my job and go home, it would be easier if i could only believe myself when i say I DON'T CARE problem is i do care and maybe thats where i am going wrong. times are hard and i am thankful i have a good job, i will forge on and continue to do the best i can do, and do it with a smile(for the customers sake) and in time it will get better or i'll just go numb and it won't bother me. no matter how hard it is it could be a lot worse.

    Freight is Freight... If You don't like Your Job, the work that We do (house deliveries aren't going away!), the people that You work with... then go away! We don't need You!

    Effective: April 6th. 2008 - those of Us that do care about < all > Our futures, decided that all We are going to concern Ourselves with, is: Protecting Our Seniority and Preserving the Work (all the Work) that We perform!

    Nothing else matters!

    Just do the best that You can...

    As safe as You can!

    And everything else will fall into place!
