    HELL YEAH IT'S A BRAG!!!!!!!!!! I HAVE to brag about that!!!! The truth of the matter is that I will probably not be able to duplicate this achievement in the foreseeable future without burning up half of my day's log!

    Here is my rant.:

    I work 14 hour shifts from monday through friday. So that makes 70 hours, right? Well my manager asked me if I could do a run on saturday every now and then since I'm still low on the seniority board. I told him I don't work on saturdays ever, that's the point of being LTL and I won't go over my hours either, I don't risk my license, I'm sure somebody high up in management would side with me on this.

    I don't know if this prick will try to threaten me with anything, I know I will call his supervisor immediately, everybody's got a supervisor up their butt in the LTL world.

    I will give you my only real Rant: Routers/load builders that get the bills and put loads together and route them by zip code/map. Bottom line, if you cant find an address or the map wont pull it up please ask me next time you see me where is so and so located. Please dont put the freight in the nose of the trailer when the stop is 5 minutes away from the first of my 18+ deliveries!

    Had a load like that a few months back when I filled in for P&D. Two pallets of clay that weighed 2K lbs at the nose of a 48 ft liftgate. the customer was a rural high school and the trailer was completely soaked on the inside from the heavy snowfall. Worst part was, the nose of the trailer was slightly pointing down cause the entrance to the building was slightly elevated. I was not a happy camper

    That's a dolley, don't think I've ever seen a b-train in the US. Would be a lot easier though

    Dock workers that load load 3 pallets for one stop in a line on the left side of the trailer, but the last pallet in the row is blocked in by another pallet on the other side that is 1 inch wider than the one you need to get out
