    This last week my hub decided that everyone with steel toed boots must take them off to go through their metal detector. Although it has some logic, it feels insulting and wastes my time. Maybe if they addressed us and informed us of a problem I would not feel so insulted. If they thought there was some sort of regular thievery going on. All it does for me is get me angry at the beginning of every shift.

    That is logical. I will start doing that. It's that stupid dark anger that makes me complain.

    Then refuse to wear steel toe boots, and when you crush your toes, sue them.

    Start going in late every few days, and when they ask you about it, tell them you would have been there on time, but you had to take off your shoes, and put them back on and that made you late.

    An old timer here said they used to make you get dressed in their locker room until it was grieved and drivers were demanding to be paid for that time. Now they say just show up in your uniform.

    I believe it's actually still in the handbook that we are not to wear uniforms out side of work regardless to or from.... Although everyone does it anyways.

    At my hub they decided a few years ago that we had to remove our shoes on our way out, everybody but the tie and suits. We didnt do it and they forgot about it. Now we have to be authorized to bring a cooler for our lunch

    Up until a few years before I retired we always had to change pants in the locker room. You could wear the shirts (they were yours) home or to a bar but the pants had to stay back in the building. We even had a center manager who loved to watch his troops change until one day I asked him point blank if he was gay and got his rock off watching us. He was a weird one---he finally got transferred after getting caught changing part timers time cards.

    Yeah, I remember the times when we had to leave our pants in the lockers every night. We used to also throw them in a big bin when they got dirty, and there was a dry cleaners that came by twice a week to pick up, drop off, and launder our pants. That was great, except then your clean pants would be hanging and other drivers would change into your pants. Luckily for me, there was only a couple of drivers who could fit into my bigazz pants. It made it easy to figure out who swiped them. lol.

    They went thru spells at my building. I guess LP would send them a memo every couple of weeks or something. Shoes would come off for a couple of days, then they would let it go. The MD would go off, and they would wand you, then they wouldn't even wand you. They never asked the drivers (feeder drivers at least) to take off their shoes to my knowledge. A new guard said something to me once about taking my shoes off, and I told him he was going to have to help me put them back on, he said never mind. lol
