    He came back under a different profile and had some choice words for Mr Smoke Stack, which I guess they deleted the profile and comments.

    He is not welcome back , I'm pretty lenient around her but he was just out of hand. Please report him if he sneaks back in and I don't catch him.

    Thank you members.

    Wish to thank Mr. Reed for all he's been to AF & FXF. He is a genuine, warm, kind and caring leader and will be missed by all. He has had some personal tragedy in the past few years and our prayers have been there for him and his family. Enjoy your retirement Sir.

    We didn't see much of him out west. In all honesty the only time I remember seeing him was when east and west merged. I don't think we have the same level of respect for him you guys back east do, but with that being said he's put in his time and I wish him a happy retirement.

    I wish Pat the best with his retirement he is a nice guy. My only problem with Pat is "a man is only good as his word" and he didn't keep his word with us here.

    I'm just glad to see someone retiring instead of working till they die or until their health is so bad they can't, regardless of who it is or what they do. Enjoy what you have worked for Mr. Reed.

    Isn't Pat Reed responsible for the Watkins Fedex National LTL debacle? That was a Great business decision . Great job Pat, that was a billion $ well spent.

    Mike Ducker pulls a $500,000 bonus right after the stock shoots up and 2 other guys get $800,000. If you think your getting a bonus in July good luck and if you do it won't be much. We are at 3.9% and need to hit 6% to make a 1%bonus and things don't look good for the next 2 quarters.

    Pat Reed,
    Wasn't he the guy on mile marker 15 that called us a bunch of actively disengaged venom spewers and that we need to get them working for our competitors ? Well maybe now her can go get a job with our competitors, he should have been swept away with that Cherry guy last year.

    I knew Pat Reed .He had just received his diploma out of college. He started working for Con Way 1988. He worked at terminal in Oxnard CA .I think we had maybe 14 doors..We got awards from Con Way for best on time service..Lowest damages etc.etc.Which he proudly hung up in the drivers room..( closet) I asked him candidly how he did it and he replied " when you guys shine I shine. My job is not to tell you how to do your jobs..You know how to do that!! My job is to facilitate what you NEED to do your jobs!! It wasn't til shortly after him working in Oxnard at Conway that he was sent onto Oakland. Conways Oakland yard was a 80 plus door facility..I was on a layover there unexpectedly and got past his secretary to say hi..When I entered his office he stood up from behind his desk and shook my hand..That's just the way he is..He then found out after I told him I was on an unexpected laydown.. He then opened his own wallet and proceeded to offer me 20.00 for expenses!! Now 21 years go by and I'm working for Fed Ex.. I called him got thru his secretary and talked to him on the phone!! If there ever was something I would see that MAYBE needed to be looked at in operations I could e mail him...I no longer work at Fed Ex because of them aquiring national..They dovetailed us in our seniority..Then they did an operational change ..which we either had to work in some remote location or layoff or quite..I am not too pleased with how that went down.. But I do not believe Pat had anything to do with that..He has his bosses..I will always consider Pat my friend.. Sure he has retired..But he deserves every bit of it..And God willing 2 more years I too will retire..I count my self priveledge to have known him..
