    Well to answer that post........ if you wern't on the East coast you wouldn't know what Preston was. But since I had 16 yrs at Red Star, I think you could say i was around when preston was here... but having a picture of a preston logo isnt proof he was ever a "driver" at preston.

    O yeah, thanks for calling me a young guy!!

    That's only if the company needs you....... With all the lay-offs they have back-ups waiting to work......... As far back as I can remember Roadway always went straight to Bi-State for the committee to decide, No warnings or time off "Your Fired"

    Not that it's worth commenting on, but there's a lot of guys on here that know me personally, & that I had many years in at Preston before they closed down. I was a shop steward for 9 years at Yellow before getting laid off at the merge. I've been a member of Truckingboards for years; you apparently have only been here since the concessions have become an issue, since your name is 'no way no how'. You are the one on here, spouting all kinds of trash, attacking people for the decisions they need to make for themselves & their families. And you are the one who brought up going to 'college', but misspelled 5 words in the same post about college. I don't think you'll do very well there until you can spell. Just sayin'.

    Oh, and by the way, you can be fired for refusing work. In our barn, you can be forced overtime, & it's a voluntary quit if you refuse. And if you really are a driver, you would know that. :GrowUp::wavey:

    If you were a shop steward, then you would know the article that would let them fire me states, and i quote "the refusal to follow a direct order which is not in violation of the contract or law. abandoning a child is kinda sorta against the law here in MD. even if it wasn't, theres not a single thing at any trucking company more important then my son! and if you think there is.. i sure wouldn't want you as my steward, friend, co-worker, or living in the USA

    I find it quite interesting that you say you got fired because you needed to be there for your autistic son, but you make insulting & discriminatory comments like #9. You're all over these boards callling people idiots, but I think you've revealed what you really are. These boards are for all Teamsters to voice their opinions & discuss things. And they have the right to without being attacked & called insulting names just because they're not voting the way you want them to. I personally think you should be banned. Just my two cents. :sign0024::GrowUp::1036316054:

    It makes me wonder about a 'dad' with an autistic son who then comes on these boards calling people mentally handicapped & using Aspbergers as a put down. I wouldn't want you as my friend or my dad, making fun of the mentally disabled; don't you consider that an insult to your son? And I challenge you to prove that you were told to 'abandon' your son.

    your so called attacks i made were responses to attacks already made by those voting the other way.. same as your doing here!...... and do you know anyone with any form of autism? aspergers is a form of autism! so yes, i do have a understanding of the disorder! more then you know! my sisters husband and son both have that condition! so i know how they hate change!.. if thats insulting, then again, i wouldnt want you as my steward! your too 2 dimensional. you take a truth and try and turn it to make it look like a attack!

    I call it as I see it. And yes, I know people with Aspbergers, & we have several children in our family with autism. And I'd cut out my tongue before I used those words against people just because they don't have the same opinions as you. I never attack anyone for their opinions & the right to say them. But you have all over these boards, calling people idiots, & mentally handicapped, which is using it as a slur. You can voice your opinion about your vote, but don't attack people & call them names just because they don't agree with you.

    by the way, since this all started with a spelling lesson, there is no "B" in aspergers.... maybe we both need to go back to school and learn how to spell!

    At least I can spell college, & 'companies', & the difference between their & there. I learned all that in grade school. And I learned not to call people names. And by the way, here was another of your posts, attacking people, posted on the very day you joined these boards.

    "Grow up and be a man! you know, anyone who votes yes is either a total idiot, or is suffering from medical problems so severe that they will get on there knees and do anyone anywhere just to keep there medical going"

    I never thought of it that way! but im glad your voting NO.. although you really shouldn't call people idiots!.... and as the old saying goes, if you live in a glass house, you shouldn't throw stones! in other words, if you miss spell yourself, don't go correcting others, and then cut them down about it! Makes you look like a narcissist.

    I remember maybe 10 years ago someone asked at a onion meeting about going home for some reason while at work, not a bs reason and the pos ba gave some pro company excuse. So I asked the pos what if your wife was in a bad car accident and was in emergency and they wanted you to stay or go back out. Oh, they could fire you, "might" not stick but they would be in their rights. What a fat pos! All depends on who you are if they take you side.

    cdl was 4 guys behind me at Preston (11 1/2 years there); 1 behind me at Yellow (9 years); Alternate Steward about 6 years or so. Like me, laid off since 10/2008. He was called back for about 3 weeks in March, 2009. That's where I jumped from this sinking ship. If there is a war, I want him in the foxhole with me! He won't run in a fight--- back you all the way!

    Those are the people you go the distance with Jimmy. Glad to see you give him recognition for it.

    Apparently you're too dense to know that the line

    "Grow up and be a man! you know, anyone who votes yes is either a total idiot, or is suffering from medical problems so severe that they will get on there knees and do anyone anywhere just to keep there medical going"

    are YOUR words, not mine. I have morals, I don't call people names. That's your mode of operation.
