    I had to laugh at that. Look at some of the gypsies in the feeder office.

    What other "craft" allows you to be 350 lbs, not shower for a week, or wear

    flip flops and sweat pants to work ? :biggrin:

    Maybe in your neck of the woods. Here the "union officials" need to take three separate vehicles to the buffet. And that's if only three are going. Lol. But that is a funny photograph you have there. It made me laugh. Out loud. Lol.

    Not at all. The discussion seems to be whether or not driving a truck is a craft. Most seem
    to disagree with you.
     
  13. I never said it was a craft you must have me confused with someone else The only thing I did was provide a definition for the word craft.

    Not at all. The discussion seems to be whether or not driving a truck is a craft. Most seem
    to think it isn't. There, fixed it for you.
     
  15. Now if you could just fix my tractor the DVIR says parts on the order any advice?

    Nobody ever really said it was a craft in the truest sense of the word. I was giving an example of being bumped within my job by someone with another job simply because they have more seniority. USPS calls all bargaining jobs “crafts”. Tractor trailer operator is a craft, custodian is a craft, letter carrier is a craft etc. etc. They call your work shift a “tour” if you want to get riled up about that next.

    I’ll try to talk only about my experiences with UPS from now on.

    Sounds like an accident waiting to happen. Thanks for telling me this so that I can be more cautious

    When trying to tag someone. Put "@" in front of their name.
