    Are you getting inspirational msg's on your power pad that end with #fedexpride? Seen a couple in the last two weeks, nearly died laughing. Must've got some consultant telling them to instill some sense of being part of something bigger in us. What's it called, esprit de corps?

    Sadly, the jackass consultant that thinks this crap up is probably making a lot more than us.

    It's coming out of Memphis. The dispatchers all across the country are being directed to send them out once a week. Trust me, they are laughing just as hard as us drivers.

    Okay, THAT'S funny! Actually, the FedEx pride parade happens every time the trained monkeys come from Memphis to the stations and pretend they care and tell us how good we have it. #fedexpride.

    So putting a pound sign in front of a slogan is supposed to motivate us now? How about actual pay progression and some of the perks you took away instead? Nah, hashtags are free where as paying someone a fair wage isn't.

    Thanks for my generous 2% raise, Fredward. I got your fedexpride right here, you cheap SOB.

    I've got my own motivational slogan - #WADandNotOneIotaMore

    I guess you haven't heard the news that some stations got a nice big fat raise for peak. It must be nice.

    Those must be stations where the oil fields are in Texas and North or South Dakota.

    We were told we would be getting some really good news tomorrow. I wonder if this has anything to do with it?
