Our center was recently audited by, well, whoever. One morning before leaving, a part time sup ushered this guy into the back of my package car to have me recite the rhetoric. He said he was not from UPS but from Liberty Mutual and asked me to go through the DOKs. Despite the poor training I've received and the obvious physiological problems of taking an oral test just before the start of a twelve hour day on the road, I got through the first four parts of the test. When I got to the rules of backing part, he said "now I know that some people say there are five rules, some say eight, some say nine, others say something else. Just give me enough that I know you know the material and that's good enough." I thought this line was curious. Considering the amount of problems associated with backing, don't you think that the rules of backing should be a little more.....stable? I think it should be noted that the guy doing the testing was not a jerk, in fact he was kind of understanding during the half dozen or so interruptions in the test. It should also be noted that the smilies at the beginning of the post were inserted by my seven year old son who thought they are funny. Anybody else run into this rules of backing issue?
