    LOL. So what lucky Express station is going to snatch up this fine individual? It's obvious it was all the fault of the contractor and the Ground system. What do you think, MFE? Can you guys mold this box monkey, or ...let me guess--Ground has defiled him and he is no longer useful to the industry. Right.

    He is par for the course. In other words, a typical Ground driver.

    if any of my drivers cried like that, I would definitely load up on him.

    I happen to think he's very typical.

    it's not the Ground drivers whining around here. I think he may be an Express courier masquerading as Ground.

    I think he wish he was an express courier at least there he would be making more

    There you shifting all the numerous problems with Ground onto Express couriers. Nobody's buying it either.
    I'm sure every Ground driver just loves their jobs so much.

    Ground drivers are also excellent spellers. This is what an 8th grade education will do for you.

    Actually looks like a pretty accurate job description if you are working for a bad contractor...and there seems to be more bad ones than good ones out there.

    How about word of mouth?
