    Yes, and the PENSION is going to be my and many employee's main focus. So INDY. make it count, I want out of trucking as soon as possible.

    Oh come on BusterNite,don't tell me your sick of playing in traffic,and meeting,and greeting the greatfull American public.
    Its so funny how people hate to drive behind our trucks.
    Yet want to go to any store,to make there purchase,than be able to take it home.

    If there was no trucks to hate,how would they like to go to make their purchase with empty store selves?

    Everyone on these truckingboards that have been posting with me knows by now how I'm always bragging of driving P & D LTL for going on 44 years.

    And the best part is I still enjoy it.

    I thank God every morning for evey day he gives me.
    Than ask for his help to meet the challenges of whatever adventure I face on my job.

    I joke around with everyone I come in contact with.
    Also smile at everyone I see in my travels.

    I hope this will help anyone thats not happy with their job.

    Everything in life is all about how we view our life here on earth.
    We only get one chance to get it right.

    If your thankful for what your blessed with life can be a joy to live no matter what your doing.
    But if you look at everything thing as being a bum rap.
    Thats just what it will be for you.

    Well thats enough preaching for now.

    But I really hope this will help all my truckingboard friends.

    Life can either be a bowl of cherries,or it can be the pits.

    That's so true Apo. Just looking around the house, can't think much of anything here that wasn't brought in somewhere downline by a truck/truckerdriver. (Well except my sweet wife, the Good Lord brought her to me. )Trucking is still the lifeline of the nation. And I am proud to be a professional driver working for a good company. I too am blessed.

    I would rather think of life as a good book. The further you get into it,
    the more it begins to come together and make sense.

    Don't let one Union employee from the Former MC in Reno influence your opinion on them all. That was my regular layover run for the better part of 4 years. Reno employees (Union and non-Union) are some of the most decent people I've met in this industry.JMO.

    Were getting the better deal, there getting the better deal, I don't think it matters anymore. I thought it did at first but I'm starting to see the big picture. (I still think the employee is the big part of the picture).

    I think that one way or another we will all be happy with what we get here, maybe as soon as mid 2007.

    Maybe even webi will be happy with the outcome. Then again, maybe not.

    Great Post!! It's not O/MC, but UPSF. It's not pro-union or non-union, its what we need. It is all of us versus the machine.

    Somehow I knew you would have something to say about that comment.

    And a vision it certainly would be.
