    Oh I know OD isn't trying to screw me. I just had always been told 4 drops and 4 hooks, just hadn't heard it explained the way you did is all. OD pays me well so I'm a happy camper.

    The hook & drop's are just commonsense.Anymore than 4 just explain why and with Trailer number's.

    Really, so today I put one on the back of a set. Arrived put in 6 hooks and 3 drops. Realizing later on in the day my mistake. Let dispatch know of my mistake. Should I be terminated. NO!!! Also on the BLU we can enter up to 6 drops or hooks. Anything over we have to explain why in comments

    That's very different. You didnt drop a full set, enter 4 and park your truck. Those guys knew what they were doing and I'm sure have done it before.

    If they do it'll catch up to them eventually. Had a line driver get fired at NGA for putting in 4 drops at GBO every night. That's a terminal you leave em hooked and the yard dog breaks it because they know we've got more important things to do than waste time breaking down sets. Someone got wise to what he was as doing, he doesn't work here anymore.

    I don't understand why all you guys just don't do them for free, like BillyLo? It will also help your chances of receiving the Mastio....

    If Billy has his way none of us line drivers would be paid. But then a city driver to make $80,000 a year is running line on the weekends. Right Billy!

    We're making 80 up in Sea without running line. Unlike you guys, WA makes the cheap congdons pay us OT. Since everyone quits or goes to line, there's always work in the city. A hot 59 hour week you wouldn't of been able to handle.

    I don't want to get off topic, but what disrespect. I want to say a lot, but I withhold my disgust. Really Billy, little man try one of my 68 hour weeks. But then I know you are the only reason OD is surviving.

    The only reason you are getting overtime is cuz you're reading and responding to TB on company time. Oops!!!! They have time stamps clown. The facts again. You didn't respond to the facts I laid out yesterday, while I was on my 30 minute break. And you're worried bout line. Look in the mirror.
