    Did someone say my name? Pay no attention to him. He is from Buffalo and well . . . you have to know someone from Buffalo to understand. That's all I'll say!

    I worked City for OD in 2000 in South Bend, IN for about six months they treated me ok, and back then I paid, I think $30 for medical and dental for myself and four boys.

    No offense, but, this is kinda why we're still stuck where we're at. Its kinda why we have positions like 10% and such. Time to move out of the dark ages and say we want this ( heat like in the office or we'll walk our rears out ). Ill do it. Will you? Got to stand up. Don't you agree?

    In dash with the team truck. I did run a slip seat box when I ran solo. Bought a Sony heavy duty job site stereo and mounted my xm on the top with zip ties. Ran a 300 watt inverter for power to the radio and xm and ran the xm receiver out the door hinge on the mirror mount with a clamp and a flat piece of steel.

    Lol :lmao: You must be the dude that dropped the Sterling a number of Sundays ago and took my buddy Jimmy's Volvo. He was due out at 6pm for Danville/Lincoln kick'n'pick. He said the Guy signed in from Buffalo. I just had breakfast with Jimmy this morning and heard about it. He is still mad and its been, what a month-six weeks ago?

    :mf swordfight:Surrender now Bill its your only hope ! The only thing saving your butt is that Jimmy is very easy going. He might give you the stink-eye or mouth off a little, but he would never flat out get in your face. :argue:

    However, Jimmy is hyper detail oriented and guaranteed he will never forget your name and is actively watching the Inbound/Outbound sheets. Maybe you should 'forget' to sign the sheets for a while . . . Like a couple of years.:popcorn:

    Any one of 'The Melt's' would be better! I like the one off Rockside Road.

    I was thinking of a jobsite radio myself, i already have a cobra inverter. Would one of those little makitas be loud enough? How was the reception?

    How bout heated tow motors?That doesn't seem so far fetched to me. I deliver to many places that are in the elements. They use enclosed cabs with heat.

    Mine is a little bigger than the makita but I think one of those would pump out enough sound. The fm worked ok when I worked city, but I use my xm almost exclusively on linehaul.

    good to know, I cant trust this place anymore with "assigned" tractors. that's just slang for, extended slipseat. you might be in one for a week, 2 months, somewhere in between. eventually you will have to pack up your stuff and throw it in another sweet million mile behemoth...

    No heat on the docks......not going to change.......too expensive.
