As soon as I read the letters DHL, I knew where the problem resided. I don't like that company, never have and never will, but no sense to get into that here.
As for the cell phone, I am like Allen. No one ever calls me. Instead I use mine to call the Mrs and to order lumber and stuff like that. I remeber one time it was ringing and I told the guy I was talking to "you better answer your phone." He said, "Its yours not mine." I never hear it ring so I did not know what it sounded like.
On the railroad the cell phone kept the system running. All talk over the railroad radio is monitored by FRN's, the FRA and is recorded by the railroad in case of derailments or other safety stuff. When you did something wrong it was not unusual to hear the dispatcher say "Call me on the cell phone."
I got that directive one day back in 2003. We were working the tracks just west of Washington, MO. We had undercut a railroad bridge and there was no way we could get it ballasted, graded and tamped before our time was up. Of course that day was special. John Kerry was running for President and he was making a whistle-stop campaign aboard Amtrak across MO. We were going to delay his train and that was when I got the call!!
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
