by the way, he USED to be one of our supervisors years ago...he told me that he can't possibly hire enough drivers and that is the situation across the country with them. I told him that I would stick with the good ole boys from The Fart just a little longer so that I could see the farce of a contract that was offered. He then told me about the pay/benefits of Fed Ex and it is quite attractive. He even told me that they have a "fully funded" pension fund..so, we'll just see....he told me that there are a lot of ex-big green machine at all levels that now work for them...I need to work about 6 more years and if we lock the gates, I know where I can get a job. He told me that he would hire me immediately...so, no big bad scare tactic this time--"Judge Judy"
