    Are they going to anything special for him? 3 million milers have tractor protection at 881.

    I don't know what tractor protection is. A lot of guys get the same truck although I'm not one of them. He has one of them new macks right now...the tractor is about 100' long. I never want it in the city.
    The new President came out and they hung a banner out front on our building with official print with New Penns and logo's and his name and achievement on it. They also had catering at the terminal with hot trays of barbecue, mixed steamed veggies, rigatoni with red sauce, and meatballs in red sauce. A cake with his name and achievement..Cookies and other treats. Iced tea and something else in a big cooler to drink.
    Stuff like that for the whole terminal. Each shift. I don't know what else he got.
    Stuff I'll never get. I know that. Cause it'd be a miracle for me.
    I've seen trucks with guys names decaled on them. Maybe he will get one of them decals. He should.

    The new COO is hanging. You guys are getting some road drivers now. I never knew that you didn't have any. Our guys make big money going there or coming from there. I knew Boston had none.

    We bid our city/shortline tractors by seniority here Slave. Tractor protection means no one else can bid on that tractor. It's his for as long as he wants it. The line drivers don't have bid tractors so they let that driver have the pick of the litter and they put a 3 million miler decal and his name on the doors. 3 million is quite an accomplishment. He's a credit to our profession.
