    My driver manager is trying to order me to recover a company truck. I took one look and said NO! ,"What do you mean, no?" The pig driver left it looking like a dumpster. He had a dog and there is a mass of animal and human waste, along with the garbage and discarded belongings. He's threatening me with all kinds of mayhem if I don't follow his orders.
    I once picked up a truck that a driver had died of a heart attack while parked, and he wasn't found for five days. As bad as that was, this is even more horrendous. Can you guys send some advice on who to get in touch with if I have to go over his head or the branch manager? If you think I'm exaggerating look at these pictures.

    Big company, tell em it's not safe and you won't drive it.

    Small company, call their bluff while looking for another job.

    You have two options. First, don't do it and be prepared for the repercussion and/or loss of a job. Second, do it.

    Edit, I looked at the pics a bit better. I wouldn't do it. They'd need to hire someone to clean first it.

    I would use the testicles i was born with and go to the highest authority in the company I could get to and let er rip. If that doesn’t work you don’t need that job.

    I'd quit before I'd be bullied into driving that. Big nope.

    Tell them NO...nothing else. They have to make the case to HR to terminate you...and that's who you want involved.
