    They have some jam up food at KNX, most are worked around all the shifts schedules. I'm all about freebies and seeing guys from other shifts.

    CM...They have EVERYTHING in KNX. I just wish you could experience life west of the Miss. river. Your view on AE would take a 180.

    I 'll stop by if it's at a BIGGER SERCTR. The T/L side of our little HAPPY FAMILY, usually sponsors these things, so the people from the dock and office's grab the goodies and good grub 1st. Unless a T/L driver or Sleeper Shuttle driver is there at the start, all they get is what is left after the LOCUST's get their fill. At the SMALLER SERCTR's it's PIZZA......NO THANK YOU!
    I HEAR YOU ON THE "FAIRY TALE" MILES AND OF COURSE THE FUEL BONUS"PAY RAISE"!

    The Locusts. I LOVE it. How true. What few little feasts I have seen over the years features these locusts walking out with plates to take to they baby's and baby mamas. Sickening.

    Locusts, LOL. funny stuff. I pass on the cookouts also. I'm married to the second best cook in Georgia, and I'm sure not going to pass up one of her meals, for dogs and burgers.

    That day cab must have inadvertently knocked it out of gear. I'm sure it was an accident .

    Is AE still playing the silly little leftist/statist "going green" game or did it go down the crapper with the "blueprint" and "Our Driving Force is People"?

    I wish that the mandatory 30 minute break had been a mandatory 2 hour break. Great long nap every day!

    I think it's a new DOT regulation beginning Jan. 1st 2014. Something to do with bulk liquid shipments. We at Con-Job also have to have our tanker endorsement.

    The tanker endorsement is required because of many shippers using liquid tote containers. We do have customers that ship complete loads of chemicals in totes. these loads require special emphisis on load placement in the trailer, along with blocking and bracing. As far as pulling tankers....Avrt does not have the proper tractors to pull tankers, along with the kind of drivers with the required SKILLS!
