Check that vehicle!

You come in and you see damage(s) on your vehicle that looks bad(not just scrape(s) unless its a new vehicle), you report it and they tell you its been like that(Oh No) this is not a good answer.

Reason: Someone is assigned that vehicle on another shift or another district and they report it, you are going to be require to make a statement on that damage! Even if the damage has been there for years, which makes for a very sticky situation because you were the last one assigned that vehicle, fair no, but that is how it works. Don’t take it personal. This should be filed under CYA!
