    I was thinking along the same lines. Trouble is, the trash co. can show up anytime in a 6 hour window. Posting a sign would be OK, but we've got lots of signs already, and half these guys don't (or can't) read signs. It's a new one for me - I've always worked at facilities where you checked in with...

    Loading dock blues

    Trying to find the simplest solution to what I hear is a problem that's been going on for long before I arrived. So, our loading bays are not monitored in real time, i.e. we have cameras but nobody is watching them all the time. They are "self serve." We get called when we've got more drivers...

    It is hard, but it can be done. I do hang out with my supervisors occasionally, but not all the time. When we have been to places where alcohol was served I had one beer to be sociable, and that was it.

    Part of the problem where I work is those lines have been blurred by other employees,...

    Well put, Copie. And prayers and good wishes for the emergency responders and volunteers that put themselves in harm's way to help others. The only good thing about disasters is that it reminds us of our united humanity in increasingly fractured times.

    The new XFL

    The "Seattle Dragons" will be a thing in 2020. I watched half of an XFL game the first time around, and I wasn't impressed. (No one else was either, since it folded in one season.)

    I like WWE, but I think football is one of those things where you shouldn't mess with the basic...

    Good basic guide. I'd just add "working pen and notebook," because I write faster than I can text or type on an iphone. Every guard should be carrying a flashlight - even if you just do day shift, you may still need one for dark areas in a power outage or blown fuse.

    "Mutual combat" is allowed in Seattle - but the police will intervene if you are a threat to bystanders, hampering traffic, etc. No equipment or MOAB training? Then you "observe and report" and just keep using verbal commands to stop until the police arrive.
