Amen brother! I hear ya. Did mine in big "D". Hard to fit in when there's hundreds of the old guys watching a couple of us. I remember whipping tools clean while they took their breaks. God forbid you left one ounce of hydro on any of their tools. Looking back now, probation was freakin hard, and as you state, it's like a Holiday Inn now. Pathetic. Remember "probie dinners"? Haven't seen one of those in freakin years!!! Maybe soon as we are hearing of Dallas new hires coming in if this contract goes thru. All that sissy crap better change if we start hiring in Dallas again.
