    Yeah but invariably we have to break all of their bad habits and "re-train" them.

    close your bulkhead door.
    be ready to be pushed beyond realistic goals.
    forget everything that you may have liked about Ground.

    I don't. However, my guess is to deliver out the passenger door and save a few steps.

    Would have saved a life in my area. Maybe two lives...the lady that was backed over and the career of the Ground driver.
