What's good for the goose is good for the gander. You lead by example.
Your ballast comment is spoken like a true blue manager. Years of orders
to watch your slip trip and fall hazards. Been to several yards run by
foreign line RRs. Their ballet is like walking on sand compared to our
bolders. Why? Because their not cheap bastards and truly care about the
safety and health of their employees.
Whinning said it best. Nit picking bullshit when they need their
failure breads the same.
Simple question for you...what's more important. Knowing where your
dangerous RSSM cars are on the system or busting some guy because he
was missing a stinking side shield on his glasses? Running trains
without paperwork for toxic poisonous cars or busting a guy for not
keeping his hand on the handrail when walking on the loco walkway?
I know my answer. My safety and the public's safety is more important
than petty bullshit! Stop the stupid crap. Get their priorities
straight. Quit acting like this is a horse and pony show.
Professionalism breeds professionalism!
