    When I got home tonight after a typically difficult day, my daughter said the following, and I think she's pretty smart.

    "When you give FedEx all you've got and then you turn old, they throw it back at you like a bomb".

    I always told my kids to tell people that I have a respectable job like a piano player in a whorehouse or an attorney, but never that I work for uncle Fredward.

    He probably has a life size poster of the fat ass in his truck.

    Yep, that's me. I'm pretty sure I could buy and sell you a couple times over and still have plenty left. Yours are words from a career loser who can't find anything but a driving job at Ground, gets his medical "benefits" from the ER, and lives in a car under the freeway.

    FedEx Ground, where losers have a home.

    Here's hoping your kid has a bright future and not be so pessimistic about the future. If my son spoke like that (you didn't mention age) I would be contacting the Mensa Society.

    Think Chris Farley on the old SNL talking about his "van by the river".

    Sounds good, but the truth is you actually conspire against your own employer, at least in words you share here. Now you feel justified doing so, but it doesn't equate to "giving it all you got", in the general sense of the saying. Have you sat down and told her that you do only what is needed? Try and sway customer behavior to switch over to UPS? Try to do things that cost Fedex packages? Try to sway other workers to do the same? Just sayin... Because... Well you posted such things.

    To me you could be right in Fedex sucks, but two wrongs.... You should exit the company and keep your own morals and integrity.

    I believe it is more noble to stand up against an oppresser rather than just leave.
    If the leaders of the early 20th century labor movements had just moved on, things would have never improved.
    The fact is there comes a time when people like MFE are needed to fight from within, and we need more of that in the present day.

    This is a job.
    It's a mental crutch for some.
    GTFO! For your own good.

    What's so smart? All she did was parrot back what you constantly spew..

    I don't share my feelings about FedEx with my kids. She observed and commented.

    I have kids too. We share more than we realize.

    My daughter who said this is less than 10 years old. She wants to work for Google or Pixar when she grows up, and we never talk about work at home. My guess is that she will realize her dream.
