Over the line

I understand that we are all in difficult financial times. And I understand that we should all cut back where we can. I applaud TWMNBN for knocking off the constant truck washing. I don’t blame them for no longer supplying our little trip notebooks. I guess in a general way I can even understand putting teams into Crapscadias. It all makes good business sense.

But this new plan where they replaced all our weekend dispatchers and load planners with trained monkeys wearing diapers may just be over the line. Or maybe I’m just not being open-minded enough. We’ll have to see how it all works out.

    They could at least get some of those sign language trained primates in the door for you guys. Sheesh!

    Perhaps eventually they will realize they are costing themselves more money in the long run by inefficiency.

    Yeah, Belledog, are you sure about the diapers?

    The big company I worked for tried the same thing. I learned to wait until Monday if I needed information.

    yeah….i’m not sure about the diapers….we were just at the ca yard and the ohio yard and we didn’t see any diapers….we saw alot of things that should be covered by diapers tho….
    it just reminds me of the old saying….i used to be disgusted, now i’m just amused…..

    And that reminds me of Mae West who said: I used to be Snow White…but I drifted.
