notes on government, sports and popular culture
The shirt-and-tie guys at work don't like what they're seeing when they're peering into trucks these days. They're obviously clamping down on "load quality". As one of them told me, "We don't make money shipping air."
Fair enough. If they don't make money, people don't have jobs.
Don't get me wrong. I enjoy the challenge of building a sturdy box wall packed tightly into the truck. But sometimes when the boxes are flowing heavy, you don't have time to "make good decisions," as supervisors have told me to do when loading.
Besides, I had their "load quality" anyway. I nice square box rolled down the chute. I looked above my head and there was nice square space. But it was out of my "power zone," so I couldn't use the "hand-to-surface" method. So I shot the box, and it rolled around at least three other boxes before landing in the hole like Rashad McCants jump shot.
