When you hire a GED level loader, promote them through the ranks to manager in their twenties, you end up with what you describe.

Or if you hire people from other retailers with no service model like Walmart who are freight pushers only, you get the same thing.

If you search linkedin it is there. You have to have approval before you can access it though, it is not a open group.

Read Connections and you will see similar things. Spelling must not be taught in school anymore. Our SM does similar things on the morning meeting notes--spelling is atrocious.

I just had some fun with my tightwad SM as well. One of my drivers showed me his tie-down straps that were frayed, the buckles smashed, no longer able to hold a load to a wall.......so I took Polaroid photos of them and said, "Sir, these need to go to DOT and OSHA, don't you think?"
He ordered new ones right then and there.!!!!
Too bad the things that you're missing, halfie aren't critical to anything but customer satisfaction and making money..
Hey, BTW, don't be kiddin' all of us about that endorsement you say you need...tell us the truth, the school district just can't find a bus with the seat close enough to the pedals for you......(J/K) ya know I love ya!!!!
