What you Said?
Yeah, we have a very colorful language, some of it might sound downright unappropriated for the civilize world, but remember we are dealing with some unusual circumstances here.
My favorite is:
“You’re only as good as your last load”
Some might find this offensive. Well here in DSNY land it means yesterdays work doesn’t count if you did a good job and picked up a ton(s) of weight. But wait how about if you didn’t do a good job yesterday, well that will be remembered and sometimes for years to come, lmao.
I remembered a foreman introducing me to my Super 13 years later as the one that gave him a half a load back 13 years ago(smh), mind you I was barely on the truck in my early years and I was never in charge of any route due to the inexperience and lack of knowledge of being on the truck, in other words I don’t remember what the hell he was talking about. He even told me who I worked with. Yeah! You’re only as good as your last load if its a good load and you finished your route.
“Oh well, it is what it is!” Forward and Onward life goes on.
