    I’ve been working as a seasonal driver for the past few weeks and here are some observations that you “veterans” may find amusing:

    · My hands are filthy within a couple hours

    · The bone-jarring noise the cab door makes when opening when car parked with right side wheels on curb

    · My sore thumb from releasing the seat belt button, stopping the motor, and poking the “deliver” button on the diad

    · Frantically trying to open the plastic bags on rainy days

    · Looking for a box in the morning when you can’t walk down the aisle and not being able to find it until the afternoon

    · Wondering if you’re going to make it back in time before airs need to be collected

    · Not knowing what I would do if I missed the stretching and the “safety tip of the day” at the PCM meeting

    realbrown1 Annoy a liberal today. Hit them with facts.

    You left a lot of things off you list. But not bad for a rook.

    Have the stiff polyester shirts done a number on your nips yet? Or do you wear an undershirt?

    Some very good observations considering your length of employment.
