    In our center, we've been waiting for a few drivers to finally come into their own and have a breakthrough season.

    They just need to take the ball and run with it!

    If you don't like your job, we have people on the bench ready to come in.

    In the morning, after inspecting their routes, drivers assume the 3 point stance.

    The center team must check with upstairs before they can make any modifications to their game plan

    Walk it off (meaning work through your injury and delivering on a rural run)

    There are mornings where I look at my load and want to punt on first down...and then you may try to get a day off, waiting to see if the routes are staffed without you..So, it's a game time decision....The bad dispatching is bad play calling...After a poor performance on the operation report, mgt. wants to play Monday morning quarterback and tell you everything you did wrong...

    The clock is winding down and we need to go into a hurry-up offense.

    Isn't that how accidents happen? You get sacked on forth down then you are out for the season. (peak season)

    Just gotta take one day at a time. We have to stay within ourselves and not try to do too much. Have to take care of our own business, we can't control what the other guy is doing.

    After further review, the ruling on the field standsthe employee will serve his suspension....

    There are a few managers, that should be waived. I bet no one claims them.

    Our dispatching coordinator loves to run multiple crossing routes through each zone

    He has been lucky so far with his run and gun approach, but eventually he will hit the wall and be much less mobile. He would then have to rely on other techniques to still get the job done and not disappoint his fans

    This is a team where the coach has lost his players.
