    At least you get to pack heat.

    OSHA would be very interested in the condition of your trucks.

    Call them.

    I think one call to the DOT would probably get some attention.

    Huuked on foniks sur wurkd fer me! At least it IS English.....well....sort of. I've had Adult Ed students that couldn't "speak" English better than that, so take a look at some of the latest HS Grads, or even College Grads, and you'll see a pattern. Dumb them down and tax them to death. I'll bet he shoots trap a lot better than he types.

    Copper, these people that would ridicule your spelling were wimpy little children while growing up and were picked on by other children. Now that their so called grown up, they will pick on people to make themselves feel good.

    Attention to small detail is a sign of self discipline.

    That said, we all make mistakes and should cut folks a bit of slack. Unless, that is, they refuse to attempt to correct their errors over time.

    Copper, don't sweat the spelling. Some of these BOZO'S think their spelling GURU'S. They've nothing else to add to the thread.

    Copper,

    Pay no attention to those people who know how to spell and use proper grammar. They are just a bunch of stuck up Doctors and Corporate Executives making six or seven figures, who are jealous of your success. It should be a comfort to you knowing they will never be your mental equal.

    Shoot well and often,

    Mark.

    I also enjoyed Coppers story, but, it is very hard to read because of the spelling and poor sentence structure. There are free spell checks on the internet, one being Ispell.

    Great tongue in cheek 100straight. No I wasn't picked on as a child, I was the town bully. LOL

    Copper,

    Please don't take mt last post as being hostile towards you. It was meant to be a bit sarchastic towards some of the other posts. I think it's great you are looking for work and trying to make things work. There are just too many people that are looking to the government for salvation, rather than doing like you and taking whatever jobs they can to make it. You are obviously intelligent enough to be able to make a go of it.

    Thanks for sharing your story and please feel free to post any updates.

    It appears that your command of the language is in line with the condition of the trucks they're having you drive. After reading your report, I wouldn't hire you to take out the trash.

    You only have one chance to make a first impression.

    As an old friend of mine used to say - "Of course I know what you mean, but God damn it, I shouldn't have to think for you!"

    Copper you put it out there and now you whine when someone critiques it. Most of us have done things that we didn't really want to do. The difference is we kept it to ourselves and didn't put out it there looking for sympathy.

    I wasn't going to say anything, but you need to learn to accept constructive criticism...How have you made it through life when you attack every person that critiques something you do? Some of the guys aren't trying to be asses, they are simply trying to help. I really don't care how you spell, as long as it looks like it sounds and is in a sentence that makes sense, it's no big deal. Please don't attack me on this, I am trying to help, and am trying to defend the people who mean well. Josh

    You have 3 threads saying goodbye and about the same subject. Just what are you trying to accomplish??? Why not let it drop or do you like the attention??

    Get on with your life.

    I’m surprised you ever made as much money in a day as what you do now in a week. It must have been a UAW job where effort and consensus work were not recognized, or your spelling and attitude would have held you back a long time ago.

    Go tell your union steward that you are forced to drive an unsafe vehicle, the union will protect you. That is why you pay those monthly dues, so the union can protect your job.

    If you are not represented properly, maybe some of the Chrysler or GM people can put you in touch with some good representation. It seems to be working for them.

    I would also suggest contacting Washington DC for a maintenance bailout. Then when the Armored Vehicle Czar is in power, he can make sure you are protected.

    Just a few suggestions, I’m sure there are more out there that I have missed but someone will cover them.

    OB

    Mr. Dave Copper, you are making an ass of yourself. Please let it drop as I'm sure that you are the only one that cares. Get a life for crying out loud. BRGII
