    Loading a feeder yesterday with three other guys, one scanning, two loading, P/T sup near the back breaking up jams on the belt. Suddenly we feel the trailer rocking. I figure a feeder driver is just getting antsy and hooking up early. It's happened before. Then we hear a engine roar, and the trailer starts moving away from the dock. Packages are flying off the belt and all over the yard. Damn near ripped the entire belt setup right off the truck. Turns out the yard spotter got his numbers mixed. The look on his face was priceless, he basically made a bunch of grunting sounds while the sup went up one side of him and down the other. Welcome to peak!

    Get out and check. That's just lazy. I understand it was raining and cold but c'mon people could have gotten hurt because of laziness. I see people all the time tap the front and pull. Get off your wagon and make sure the door is closed if it's not go inside. Your not paid by the move.

    Don't know. It wasn't identified in my search.

    If so, sorry again.

    Might not have been, as they were just pulling empty trailers in and out of the parking lots to make it appear volume was moving.

    This actually made me laugh out loud. Not "hey that's funny...I'll type lol", but a genuine chuckle. I think I need sleep.
