    I think I once or twice quit ahead of you quitting, you need to speed things up a little, those employers are so impatient. //TEASING...

    Driver! You do what you are told. We don't pay you *&^% to think.

    No wonder you go through drivers so much "Father Dearest... *Mwah" Then they sit back and finally purple up when they realized the magnitude of your insult combined with your quitting.

    "You do not get to quit this way, we can prosecute you."

    Me: (Been waiting for months for this...) You and what Army? Or better yet did your mammy say you can play with the dismissal tools at your age still in diapers?" They tend to bite hard in the ### bad when misapplied you know...

    See that purple on them change to a pulsing red followed by a system wide shaking as their control just goes right out the window. Especially if you can get a drivers lounge to hear and see the exchange in full followed by you quitting and 50 others whole sale.

    That would be one moment never to be repeated in planet earth, mass quitting on impluse. We broke the tension question like this: "Well. Do we charter a party bus or go greyhound?"

    I can still hear that laughing to this day, the kind that is very heap strong medicine to those who needed it.

    Remember, this happened one time. Something like this will never be escalated with many peace offerings ground into the mud and broken tomahawks making sure they stay put. Deep. Applied with much anger.

    When someone is unable to control or contain their rage and you are it, you need to do whatever you need to to get clear of the situation because it could very well end your life in a short order. Or that of the rager in self defense that might kill you to injuries anyway. Those I call Berserkers. Its a simple word. Very little is allowed to influence or stop them in full steam ahead attack. You literally have to almost dismantle them at the joints or take the heart off line and then wait about a minute as the chemicals wear off and the person still has not gotten the memo that they are dead already while continuing the assault to take you out.

    Basically you are at the mercy of everybody and everything else in the world so a sense of humor is mandatory or you will never make it in this biz.

    One day my dispatcher complained that Connecticut is only 115 miles. WTF is my malfunction?

    Google the #### state's Q bridge why you are busy yelling at me. They closed the #### thing near two days straight after a morning rush multiple fatals on the westbound side.

    And why you too busy giving me a third degree while 7 of your drivers sitting in this #### payphone room purring as if nothing delayed them at all today on your precious 115 miles of real estate, if you like it that much you move up here and drive #### loads yourself.

    Oh um so sorry driver, I didnt

    OF COURSE YOU DIDNT.

    No ONE EVER DOES (Shouted at high volume so entire pay phone room laughs...)

    Must I do all the thinking around here for your dispatch screwups?: ShESH.

    I can do this all day if the man didnt want to fire me first with his Boss. I twisted his tail once too many times that morning. But boy, did he ever walk into that one.

    Now how it ever got the eastbound side ever involved is beyond me.

    All dispatcher orders for delivery dates and times are double checked now against local news to see if there are any FUBARS (*Not exactly willing to explain this one, you will just need to your own imagination...)
