    Other week or month my truck was in the shop. I filled in for a guy and came in early eve for a grocery sortie run and took a line tractor bc ol billy don't drive junk. Guess the newer line guy got upset, but yo your name ain't on the door. Deal with it.

    Me and ops laughed because we knew this guy is a cry baby.

    First thing I did was shove that cb mic hanging on that gear grabber into the cubby hole and left it there.

    First night that truck ever had to work for a living and it thanked me.

    You're junior seniority and are just a line driver that's why. Drivers who've gone out of their way for the company for 25 years get taken care of before you. If you leave my truck filthy you will get an IRF. Even ops knows not to give my truck out but they sure will give out a junior line drivers truck if I need one! Sorry jr, we know you FedEx transplants are too chicken to stir the pot anyhow.

    If you're smoking in a non smoking truck it's possible grounds for termination. We have drivers that will take it up with local government who've stated our cab is our office and they will fine the company if you're violating our health rights with your filthy disgusting habit!

    Enlighten us as to how seniority matters at OD. Haven't you been on here complaining about that in the past?

    As far as tenure goes, I know a few who were shown what that means the first time they became ill. It was a termination letter in the mail the minute twelve weeks were up. (FMLA)

    I know most all of your post are tongue in cheek, just pointing that out for some of our resident kool-aid drinkers who may think they actually matter to any company.

    Just to butt in about the termination deal.If a Driver has a Stroke it is a automatic 1 year before can even get a CDL Back.There are several other thing's to.So the Company has no choice but to terminate.There alway's another side to termination at any Company

    It's more than an isolated incident of a stroke. Plenty of people have been terminated for multiple ailments. It's not just Old Dominion who does this. Most companies will give you only six months and then you're done. That's what working at-will gets you.
