    You do have a nice uniform, what more could you ask for??? My truck is a couple of different shades of orange and white, but the check is still there. I am a happy camper, and we don’t have an owner with deep pockets. Who knows maybe we will get a paint job too someday, all orange with a different name, to consolidate all the companies together.

    the day I am on the unemployment is the day the doors will close and that may be sooner than you think if these idiots don't get it together, even ups is being hurt by this fiasco, one day they will reach into their deep pockets and they won't be so deep. all parties are liars and you will pay for their dishonesty.

    Oh my webidiot you are always so optimistic in most of your posts.
    I find a lot of your ideas very funny.
    You most be a laugh riot at your terminal when UPS Freight has any of their meetings.
    I bet you have all of your co-workers rolling on the floor with laughters.
    When the meeting leader asks for question,and comments.

    You know being happy is very good medicine.
    Theres even a passage in the Bible that addresses this very thing.
    Proverbs 17:22 states:A merry heart doeth good like a medicine...

    I gotta get going to church,LATER!!!

    I think, when they rebrand the motor cargo (newer) volvos, they are giving these the 18000 series number.
    I meet a guy from SLC and noticed the number on his tractor.
    There volvos have a different front clip than the OVNT volvos.

    Thats great, but for those of you that are driving twin screws, make sure your fifth wheel plate is slid all the way back, and you still might have to take off your mudflaps to keep them from getting bent.

    I have said this from the begining. How do you think UPS has so much money. NOT from giving it away. They will not spend money until they have to. And they will not spend money until they show the shareholders that they have made money. ######thats what its all about to them.:1036316054:

    Mike E. and Scot D. have said this in a quarterly stock holders meeting. Along with the UPSF business model is on a several year growth plan. This will be the worlds biggest freight company by then, according to them.

    I believe when they get all the bugs worked out we all are going to be happy little campers. But there is always those malcontents that will never be happy no matter what.:1036316054:

    Hey skeeterhawk, any word on what they are thinking for a make on power yet? My money is on Sterling or Int'ls......El Cheapo. And it is definately a safe bet no radios.

    Hey, We can go down memory lane. When I first started here we had NO am/fm radios, NO power steering, NO air conditioners, NO cruise control. NO anti lock anything. I remember having to foot pump the washer fluid, BUT we did have padded seats.:biglaugh:

    I am starting to feel it. After sitting 2-1/2 hours in the yard and making $18.00 delay pay waiting for a vendor to repair a flat on my tractor. I now have one freshly painted brown rim. I am starting to feel like part of the family.:biglaugh:
