Well, since you brought up grammar... Your first sentence should read "YOU'RE not trying to start a fight with me..." And further down you do that again. In fact you do it a couple of more times.
If you are writing a sentence and you are using the word you're as a contraction of "you are" then it's spelled "you're". An example would be "You're pissing me off when you correct my posts!!"
If you are talking about your kids then it's "your". People mess it up all the time.
I know people REALLY don't like to be corrected on these things. But that's how I learned the difference between "their" "there" and "they're", as well as "you're" and "your". I'm 40+ years old and I still have trouble with it. English is a nutty language.
lol it is isn't it.. thanks for the advice though!! see if she would have been nice like you it would have been different.. but she wasn't talking about my spelling, it was the grammar she said.. and i was like well d*mn i didn't know we had to type all kinds of fancy words on here to impress ppl.. she was just being a picky bi*ch and wanting to start something with me cause she don't have a life of her own i guess.. but oh well that's just how ppl are.. but she was talking about me when she didn't spell a couple things in some of her posts right.. so i was like well i guess you need to work on yourself some before you start trying to correct everyone else!!

I have been reading with interest the comments made about Ms. Shawn Collins-Worst Boss. I have friends that work at Forward Air in Greeneville and Atlanta and Walmart Distribution Center ,some still work for her and some quit because of her.Ms Collins name has been mentioned in conversations with these friends. Commments like "She doesn't know her job",or "She asks her employees for advice when talking on the phone". Do the workers know more than she does? Could that be the reason she tries to anger her employees? Certain things that are said or done can lower an employees self-esteem. Possibly the employees could do a better job is they were treated with respect. Could that be the reason some employees vented their frustration on topix?-- and embarrassing employees for mistakes by letting everyone know? Has Ms. Collins ever made a mistake? Her employees could possibly answer that, but would they? Probably not for fear of losing their job. Maybe this needs to be looked into by the CEO.If all else fails to make your work place better, make sure someone you trust goes with you when you have conversations with Ms. Collins. Ask if you can record conversations with Ms. Collins. Employees can also contact the Labor Board and tell them that there is harrassment and hostel environment while working for her. I hope and pray that the workplace can be improved for all employees. It is a shame that one person can ruin the good name of a wonderful company. SOMETHING IS WRONG!
You forgot the main one, the EEO can handle this situation and straighten out the boss without harming the company unless she has already done that to a certain degree. Too many compliants by too many of her employees. Doesn't look good.

The workers of today are very lazy. Ask anyone in a supervisors role and they will tell you that. Perhaps if you would be more concerned about doing your job and doing it right instead of spreading rumors on topix, then Ms. Collins wouldnt have to get after your butt so bad.

This is in reference to "wondering." What about the employees that work hard and never get a word of thanks from Shawn. I guess she is too busy thinking of something to do to upset one of us. She seems to thrive when she makes someone feel bad. I think that must be her main intention. I guess that is because she doesn't want any of us employees to think we know more than she does. I dare say most of us could do a better job if she was gone. I believe we could do much better with someone that had an education and would not cause an uproar with one of us everyday.

id like to hear specific examples...from what I see 99% of you sit on your butts making eleven dollars and hour taking 50-70 calls a day, with total amount of time actually working ie actively on the phone between 2-2.5 hrs. that means 5-6 hrs of your day you are doing nothing but complaining. when you break it down you have it made. last i saw none of you all where in her office getting in touble...

Do you work at Forward Air? Is your job to watch 99% of the day to see what other employees are doing? Do you keep a paper and take down how many calls we get a day? We work 2-2.5 hours a day, is that right? And the other 5-6 hours we complain, is that right? How much do you get paid for doing nothing? You even have time to (saw none of you all where in her office getting in trouble). You don't make much sense. If you work here, maybe you and Shawn can go take some night classes or something to better yourselves.

Shawn Collins.

She gets worse every day. No personality. Likes to fine fault with someone everyday and then the harrassment starts. Not a happy place to work most days.

Please do us all a favor and make yourself happy. Find another job!! Find a job with extensive employee benefits and good pay for sitting on your a$$. Everyone is replacable and someone is waiting in line for your job. So go ahead and please leave! Thanks!

If everyone that thinks Shawn is a crappy boss were to leave, Forward Air would all but shut down. Only people that would be left would be Shawn, Mary Anne, Brad Huff & maybe her sister Donna. So while there may be people waiting & wanting a job, no one wants or deserves to be treated the way SC treats people. Even if she can't find fault in your job performance, she will still attack you but on a personal level. Ex: do you not own a hairbrush? no makeup today - you look dead! you think your girlfriend's pregnant-but you're gay! I see your diet isn't working out for ya!....and so on...many a fine employee has transferred out from under her or left the company altogether because of the harrassment.

If she is all that bad really and I have no idea who she is.. if she is attaching you on a personal level that is grounds for harassment and a law suit just my thoughts

I have known SC for a long time.I dont know why she says anything to anyonee about there looks.. omg she built like a little sissy boy and her voice sounds like a man and her adams apple is bigger than alot of mens.. she is a wanna be bitch.. It sounds like a few people need to beat the crap out of her and let her know she isnt all that!! and as for her sister all she is, a wanna be like her sister that makes her more pathedic than her sissy boy looking sister!!

One would think actions described would be grounds for harassment however in Forward Air world Shawn calls the meetings. If she decides it should just be two people rather than having a witness present, she meets with you alone. She does this so she can degrade and ridicule behind closed doors with NO PROOF of what she says. That makes it your word against hers and she will lie about the things she said and proceed to do everything within her power to bring you down if you do report it. The on-site lawyer does NOTHING about it other than advising Shawn she is being investigated, which opens the door for her to nit pick until that person who did report the matter is out the door. Having said that, outside attorneys seem to have a completely different view on the matter so I hope that precious Shawn is worth a lot to the company because she is going to end up being a HUGE liability based on what I've been told by a former employee that's researching the matter.

Why make all of us leave when it would be better for the company if Shawn, and the 2 or 3 that kiss her A^^ would find another job.
