    It's been a week since Harvey and the catastrophic events and flooding that happened began. I am wanting to send out thoughts and prayers to our brothers and sisters in the region's affected by it. Especially in HOU and HOB. They seem to have been the worst hit. I find it hard to believe that no one else has taken the time to give a shout out....it just shows the selfishness and all about me attitudes of the majority of posters to this thread. Should rename it the piss moan and complain about how bad it is to work here thread....I personally want to say if you live in the affected areas or know someone that has been...feel free to p.m. me or post it here and I will do what I can to help. I've already talked with my rvp..who is seeing what we can do as a region to help.

    Is attacking the members of one community (trucking boards) the best way to help another?

    I donated money to red cross threw sams and they matched my donation. I figured it was a lot better than posting something on here that they wouldn't see anyways. :1036316054:

    If Fed ex sets something up to donate directly to our co-workers let us know I will donate to that also.

    Well good for you.... You posted on social media and you asked someone else (your RVP) to do the work for you to help folks out? I'm impressed! You can sleep soundly tonight knowing you made a difference.

    Matthew 6:5-6 NIV

    5
    “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.
    6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."

    I'm confused on why you came on here to call us out, but the only thing your doing is patting yourself on back.

    If he hurts himself patting himself on the back, is that a work related injury.

    But seriously, not a word in my hub regarding disaster relief.

    Actions speak louder than words, and many are pitching in however they can for the relief effort. Talking about helping on here isn't the same as helping, and Hurricane Harvey relief efforts are a lot bigger than just the FedEx board. You give a shout out to affected FedEx employees who aren't in a position to read the board, with no consideration for the thousands of others who both need help and work somewhere else.

    There may be a lot of piss and vinegar thrown around on this board, but at the end of the day everyone here would put their differences - with the company and each other - aside for something bigger than any of us. Just because we're not talking about it, doesn't mean we're not doing anything. Even Canadians are helping out however they can, because that's how we roll in the Great White North.

    So take off, eh!

    Take off would be a polite euphemism for.....
