    But hey - that pickle they're telling you to pack? They didn't have to do that.

They've been coming around this week and giving out these

So hey, everything is OK I guess. Spared no expense.

    They're the kind of thing that becomes normal and no longer terrifying and then things get harried and you look up and someone's dead.

Less than a year into my working here one of the area supervisors put in a call to pull the wrong trailer. Driver took off right as I was walking in. One of the lifers came up afterwards and said "I hear you almost died." Took a long time to realize he hadn't been joking. I'm sorry about your neighbor.
