It's the frigging middle of June but your complaining about Christmas?
lol. You're not the first, you won't be the last. I remember those
notices years ago that they were shutting down from 1800 Christmas Eve
to 0700 on Dec 26th. I missed several calls because they started
deadheading at 2200 on Christmas day. This was before cellphones. It's
the railroad. You never trust the railroad especially if you're 1st-3rd
out on a pool or extra board. With your time on the RR 10-20 years one
would think you'ld know by now.
