    I've been at Abilene for 4.5 years. I've had three DMs. I've had a great relationship with all three, and they all told me I was a really good driver.

    And any time I feel like letting that go to my head, I remember stories like these and realize that the bar for "really good" is set pretty low. :biggrin_2559:

    Aren’t they required to call drivers every day they (DM) work now? Even on the drivers days off? Seems like I heard that somewhere.

    I had Jeff also. Memorial Day weekend last year I called in to Alan Dann and explained to him that based on our conversation right now, either it’s going to be fixed, or my other foot will be out the door. Needles to say, I’m still here and he’s not. Horrible. That’s all I have to say.

    Cliff got fired for not showing up to work.

    This was the 2nd time he got fired. The *first* time he got fired (back in March 2020) was for being habitually late for work. Nice guy and I liked him as my DM, but apparently attendance wasn't his strong suit.
     
    Bumper, JohnBoy and Finfn1372 Thank this.

    Yeah, they have re-implemented that policy. Win (my DM) has been calling me on the reg for the past week or so.
