    I heard this guy could not get on at CRST, so Coop Dispatch sent him here, just so Big Dave could collect his referral fee....

    I had heard a couple years ago Columbus was hiring out of school, but I don't know if that was actually true. I do know that they hired at least 1 driver with only 3 months experience. We were picking up at the same customer and he bragged to me that membership in the union would entitle him to cuss out his dispatcher without consequences. I said "...oookayyy." He wasn't the brightest bulb.

    I still get comments system wide about how I look young and get asked how long I’ve been doing it.

    I just say “luckily I haven’t run into anything yet, cause I don’t really know what I’m doing.”

    The looks I get are nice.

    He may not be the brightest, but he was not lying to you, I've seen this happen many times.

    I know he wasn't lying, I just thought it was an odd thing to brag about. It is sad that's the main benefit of the union someone sold the kid on. A corrosive culture like that will only continue to bring Holland down. And whoever is teaching him about the union is doing him, the company, and the union a disservice.

    I came into Birmingham one day, one of our better dispatchers said, Atl. has the dumbest drivers in our system.
    I asked why would you say this? one told me if I would come out in the drivers room he would whip my azz.
    I told hium a charlotte driver made me a lot better deal, he offered to come in the dispatch office and whip me.

    Guy in Columbus did me like that on homeloac violation. Telling me to get with my steward and 6 hour penalty. I was trying to tell him I knew how to handle it, but he cut me off and kept going. Friend of mine came over and told him I am the steward and former BA. Should’ve seen his mouth drop and he asked me how old I was, I winked and told him 32.

    You're just trying to attract younger woman, you could pass for 50 anytime.
