I do hope you (readers) understand the reason of my vagueness. I have heard that the station in my region, per say: is short-handed. Now, I must pose the question of the why and the how could this be? I myself, put in 11 years of service and walked-when provided with a "more reasonable" opportunity. I had seen great employees with excellent potential come and sadly go while I worked there (through the years). It just seems odd that the expense to train and place just 1 employee in 1 position can be terminated in a half blink of an eye. Could there not be any safety, security, or basic re-training implemented for employees in question? (this statement of coarse excludes theft and/ or criminal activity) Heck, the re-training would probably save the company a fortune in rehiring endeavors. I hate to hear of fellow ex-coworkers (that busted their tail everyday) receiving their walking papers. The fact that peak is coming and will come every year, eludes them- and why they continue to let good help go is truly beyond me. I do know that managers better become very familiar with all of the routes, because they will have to cover them. I will digress now and just bid all of you who actually "make it happen" my best wishes... I will be dormant for awhile, Ghost.
