The current management theme seems to be an ostrich-like "pretend that it's all OK" and that absolutely nothing is happening out of the ordinary. At my station, we're in meltdown mode, and it's coming apart faster than they can cobble it back together. Service is down, the PTers' are saying "no", and lots of people are calling-in sick. As they collapse routes and pressure everyone to work harder, attitudes and morale sink farther down the toilet. It's fascinating to watch, and amazingly, the ops managers understand why and are correctly blaming Memphis for the problems. They "get it" that employees are rightfully , and that the time for major change is long overdue. Only the senior is holding-on to the company line, and he is in serious trouble. Mine can't be the only station like this, and I suspect there are many others popping-up on the MEM radar. When the ops managers are ready to revolt too, the time is ripe for some big-time trouble. Pop a beer, grab some popcorn, and watch the action unfold. I am going to enjoy it! Screw you Smith, because you've earned every single moment of the drama that is about to unfold.
