    Is it bad treatment after being fired?

    Would you put up with someone off the street verbally or physically abusing you?

    Sorry, it is. And it's wrong for your boss to abuse you, too. If he's all beaten down because of the crap drivers he "has" to deal with, it's his fault for driving off the good ones and getting stuck with the dregs.

    You've already fired the dude right? So what is the point in writing a letter like that? It doesn't make you any better as a company, I'd hope that Randy has more important things to do with his time.

    I do think the note in the picture was sent to the op by Randy but I do think there is more to the story. Randy is renowned for sending notes to drivers like that who got into accidents or even who got injured on the job and had to file workmens compensation claims. They always include some kind of comment about how much it is costing him or the company. He is an arrogant clown.

    You sir hit the nail on the head. Over the years they have made policy changes and changes in the way they operate that has driven off most of their older more senior drivers who can easily find much better gigs. Randy just needs to accept that Marten is pretty much a bottom feeder company now unless drastic changes are made and they really start treating drivers better which starts at the top and since letters like this come from the top I don't see that happening.

    Randy has excellent scribblin skills,and you guys are lucky to have even
    received a post it note.
    Ive only been fired once,and the owner never sent me
    a chicken scratch note.
    I just WISH I was employed by someone that hated me enough to write to me,
    AND!!! he use to race motocross!!!
    Love you Randy,I like trucks,and motorcycles too..
    Please reply with with post it note,and picture of current motorcycles..:biggrin_25525:
     
    Meltom and joseph1135 Thank this.

    No mention if the truck was damaged at all... maybe he hit some big landscaping rock and took out the rim plus the tire then got stuck and needed a tow. Taking out some landscaping and damaging your truck, calling for a wrecker, can all add up pretty fast I'm thinking... there's gotta be more to this story...
