    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    No because if I'm on vacation my phone is on silent.

    “Big Union Guy” no they don’t pay my cellphone bill but since I started 7/17 that’s how I was trained to verify if I was working that day or not not. If this is not the correct way then please Inform this fellow teamster to the correct method.

    “Bug” Hell yeah I was nervous I thought I might had accidentally written down the wrong vacation week on my calendar and I’m out of state so I was like wtf is going on..

    This happens all the time in my center. When I was on vacay they called me 3 times on 3 separate days. I dont even bother to pick up.

    Short drivers, yet at my center the 5 drivers who just qualified for FT are back on preload and/or local sort indefinitely.

    I've only ever been contacted once in 25 years while I was on vacation. They left my trip sitting and wondered where I was was. I told them I was at the beach. OMS said I wasn't on vacation. I told her to turn around and look at the calendar to which she quickly responded to the dispatcher, "Oh :censored2:, Cementups is off this week", followed by a "Cya Cementups, have a good time and sorry to bother you."

  15. I know one guy in my center who this happens too. What does "short drivers" mean? We don't use that type of slang down in the south!

    eats packages Why won't the door close?

    I gave them a burner phone number and then migrated it to a $25/year # holding account. Now their calls and texts go unanswered forever.

    TheMachine Are you sure you want to punch out?

    I love how they cross check if you’re on vacation or not. No actually I just thought I’d text you I was on vacation to fack with you.

    Then they say oh yeah you are ok. Yeah, I know, vacation was organized weeks ago, but thanks for pretending you’re in charge.
