    I`m looking at the choices trying to decide and it occurs to me that I never knew that Cheryl was that heavy of a drinker.

    Suggest some poll questions cach. No one has voted yet so I can still edit them in.

    Gawd, I can't seem to pick an answer. I would have picked pay and benefits back when I had young kids, now I don't need as much.

    I guess the best thing is when I'm out on the road alone in my tractor actually going somewhere.
    I choose "other".

    I'm the person who chose "opportunities for advancement". In the area where I'm in, it seems like a lot of folks are retiring, moving up, moving down, or something similar; it makes it easier (not easy, but easier) for a young person starting out to move ahead quicker than might otherwise be possible. Although, then again, maybe they all see something I don't? That is possible.

    I guess that I have not been sufficiently demoralized and/or crushed by UPS; I know, "give it awhile".

    I could have also chosen "Coworkers", because the guys I work with (and now "supervise") are probably among the best and hardest working people I've ever met in my life.

    I've been trying to figure this out for awhile now. There are a few appropriate answers like pay and bene's but those aren't the answers I would pick as my first choice. I think my first choice would be it's a challenge for me. It's almost like doing a jigsaw puzzle, which I love to do. The challenge is getting everything done with the least amount of time and miles, not doubling back on rte, everything neat and orderly.

    I dunno, I kind of liked digging ditches. I like my co workers but never see them outside of work. yes the bennies too. I would say no boss all day, but with telematics its like having the boss on your butt all day, so Pay and bennies, thats it.

    This job also keeps us fit, if incorporated with a workout routine and of course, relatively good eating habits. Those of us in our 30's and 40's are usually in better shape than our High School friends who we see at the reunions.

    Pay and pay alone. Can't include benefits anymore; under Central States don't even know if there will be a pension.
