I think based on what has happened to a fellow driver, we need to support one another. Someone said, and truer words were never spoken, its just a job. Leave it there after you have done your best. Not just at peak but all year. Come here vent, rage, and do it another day. Most management is not heartless, and when they are, ignore it. Just the facts. If they want to know why you are "late" respond why you think. Dont take it personally. If a customer wants to have their stuff left, leave them a whole pack of stickies, if they dont fill them out, dont leave it. Dont sign for packages just so you dont have to fight them again. You get paid to fight them again. In other words dont do your customers any favors, or what you "think" they would like you to do. The most important stop is back at your front door. I have seen people afraid to look at the OPS and I had to look at them for them. It is stressful enough without conditioning yourself to believe what they say in black and white, is the effort you put forth. There are too many variables. It took me a very long time to understand what I preach. I just dont take it personally anymore, and I dont cut corners, and I dont skip my breaks. My body needs the rest. And we never want to see what happened to our brother happen again. 23 yrs of service, and all for what? So very sad for his family, and for us. I have seen the effects of suicide on a family. Get help if you are coming unwound. Dont leave your family and friends to wonder, what they coulda shoulda woulda done different to save you. It is not fair. As many have said, there is life after brown. peace out.
