Woo hoo!!!
I've been driving for a contractor that contracts for FedEx for the last 15 months, pay was a little low and benefits sucked but it was the only 8 hour a [s]day[/s]night job I could find and I'm sick of 12 to 16 hour days.
About 7 months ago my contractor told me he was thinking of pulling his truck, I do a short run and he wasn't making enough money so I've been pretty nervous wondering how long I was gonna have a job. I've been pestering FedEx to put me on as a company driver, they all like me and I've got a spotless record but they save buttloads of money using contractors.
Today I found out they went for it, I'll be getting a 12 cent per mile increase and full bennies for the family :D
Woo Hoo, it's party time!!!!!!

WooHooo! Pay increases! :D

Cool, I get a brandy new Volvo, not my favorite make but much better than the old Internasty I'm driving now. Only downside is I have to share it with a P&D driver, nasty creatures but they can be house broken with a little effort.

Thanks folks, I'm a happy (although very wet) camper today.

Woot congrats Skeeter. Full Benefits are worth their weight in gold these days:D

Congrats skeeter!! Looks like you might get a soft top AND hard top after all, huh? :D

Texapple 06-30-2007 07:15 PM

:D yea for Skeeter & Amy :D

That's great news. What was the end result with the hard top?

skeeter 06-30-2007 07:20 PM

Still no end result, the finance company is insisting on me sending the check to them and I tell them to get bent.
I don't owe much on the Jeep so we're probably going to just pay it off.
