    In the new world order we SHOULD have very Well paid educators who are extremely qualified to TEACH our children so they will actually be prepared to thrive in the NWO---&There will be plenty of bread on the shelves BUT Malwart will have VANISHED! Now that would be justice:D

    Any Tyson Meat plant in the Midwest will take a good chunk of your life and erase it.

    Think you beat me by a half hour! Toys R Us... dont remember which DC centerwe were delivering at. They said the unload was taking for ever because of the wrong barcodes were on the boxes and it was MY fault for it.... right like I went into the trailer and put wrong barcodes on all of them. Said I couldn't use the bathroom either. Told them fine i would drop my pants right there and take a load off my mind. Finally escorted me to the bathroom. When I came back told them I had been charging detention pay. They laughed at me. Never saw any detention pay. Had the company I was leased to calling them every half hour too. Never hauling a load for them again!!!

    I have more years in the industry than you and I will take the help from Unions any day. I think some of the quotes you have under your posts are pretty far off the mark. Wow you and de-regulation of the industry go hand in hand.

    Little over 18 hours, wasn't allowed to use their restroom, or allowed in the building at all, no porta pots or anything, could not drop trailer according to them. I found a door and walked in not knowing we were not allowed inside, and a guy on a tricycle had a freak out. I had to call our safety department and get permission to drop the trailer in the door and to leave and find a restroom outside of the facility. Guard shack was nice enough to allow us to use their restroom which was still against the rules. Guard allowed us to use their microwave since our inverter was broke so we could have dinner.

    All for a load of return pallets..
