    Or more likely, pro-Individualism.
    Of course, in your eyes that is anti-Unionism which equates to pro management.
    So I guess you are right ... in a way.

    Someone was listening to Neal Bortz this morning. He also refered to unions as "a mob , and a mob mentality is dangerous", noticed how I could say the same things about every political rally I've seen. Wanna see what happens when "you let the market go free and get government out of the way" as he so preaches about, banks and defunct mortages say hello.

    I was actually making two more paragraphs about this, but I didn't want to highjack a thread.

    It's almost midnight here and I'm about 4 into it after watching Netflix with the offspring. I'll see if I can muster something up tomorrow at the dogs vet appointment.

    And the post was refering to Hoax, WSB morning talk show host name Neal Bortz, that he sounded just like from this morning.

    A person is smart but people can be very stupid.

    I'll give you an example: I was delivering on a busy four lane (2 lanes each way) street. I was in the right hand lane. I had a stop so I put the four ways on half a block before the stop, secured the pkg car, selected the pkg, grabbed the DIAD, made sure I had 3 points of contact and proceeded to cross behind the pkg car only to discover 6 cars had lined up behind the PC. The first car did not have her eyes ahead of her car, did not see the four ways and stopped right behind the PC and, like sheep, the other 5 stopped behind her. The other lane was clear. The first lady proceeded to yell at me for blocking the road. I simply pointed at the 4-ways, made the delivery, came back to the PC (she was still sitting there) and drove to the next stop.

    407, I don't give you the time of the day as I would have to explain it to you using "big hand, little hand".

    As soon as her lips started moving, is when my fingers move to the 'time card' feature' for a 10 minute rest. :D

    It was kind of funny--she yelled at me from the time I crossed behind the PC, crossed all 4 lanes, made the delivery, and was still yelling when I crossed behind (and again pointed to the 4-ways) the PC, got in and drove to the next stop. By then the 5 cars behind her had all changed lanes and she was sitting there by herself.

    the sad part is she will never understand why she was stuck sitting there, except the UPS driver had to make a delivery. ;D

    I'm not going to look and see what he posted but, nice or not-nice, it will be right on the money.

    You actually stop on a 4 lane rd. and make a delivery on the other side of street. Yikes! That's not in my methods. With 5 cars stacking up behind you that fast sounds like a busy rd. Eventually stupid people will rear end u.

    Two lanes of traffic each way. The route is not set up to do alternate side of the road delivery--all deliveries are made from the same side of the road, high to low, as this street brings me in to the heart of my area. This is why I am always careful to put the four ways on well ahead of the stop.
