    Hello my fellow ups people. I just made an account. Last week I attended the intergrad school for a week. It was in Maryland. 3 people did not make it. I thought it was easy since I pre-load and have some general knowledge. Plus I grew up in the country driving anything with wheels. I learned a lot about my uniform which they were very strict on. They don't give you much driving time on the road. The 2 minute drill where you have to talk constantly and point out hazards and what not is so stupid. The course they set-up is easy but they want you to do it an exact way (such as leaving one foot in and one foot out for a dock stop), as long as the damn box gets delivered, but I understand why they do it. I only wish I could practice more on the DIAD. I left my DIAD on my desk the 2nd day for uniform inspection and I had to sing and dance Friday in front of class, lol. By the way I took request and sang Adele, I moonwalked also. I learned a lot and the teachers had great tips and stories( especially ones about dealing with dogs), lol. I'm excited to start driving, I like driving I can do it all day(I'll regret that sentence soon), plus your by yourself(no jerkoffs telling me what to do), and of course the $$$. Be careful drivers and I bleed brown baby. Remember it's just cardboard.

    Everyone is so excited to start this job at first.

    Either they realize how :censored2:ty it is and say :censored2: it or they realize how :censored2:ty it but have to stay because they need to make a decent living for their family.

    I'm just happy I always wrapped myself up and have no one depending on me. You divers are paid well but it's by no means a good life when you're on the clock

    TheMachine Are you sure you want to punch out?

    Everything is verbatim. Yard Control, 8 Keys, 10 and 5, slips and falls, rules of backing. Exactly how it’s written is exactly how you write it down and then spit it back to your instructor.

    The 5's are----the 10's you need to know the main points.

    That seems insane to memorize the paragraphs word for word in the 10's. Everything else is manageable.
