    Center Manager made a big announcement a few weeks ago regarding 8 hour days just beyond the horizon. Management is patting themselves on the back saying how the 9.5 push was such a big success that they will now plan to make 8 hour days the norm soon. Thoughts???

    Too many years of 13 hour days. I say we do the 8 and start living a life for once.

    I got a lot of respect for the old timers. No EDD, no diads, old school maps stored in tubes like a pirate, P1000 manuals with no power steering...anything else I missed?

    I have been delivering a lot of trampolines lately. I love it when the preloader puts it all the way in front of the truck under the 2000 section.
