TRIMET ELITE-NO SACRIFICES FOR THESE PEOPLE

The worst  RECESSION SINCE THE GREAT DEPRESSION doesn't touch these people!

I just smiled


If we had union members as serious as these MCFARLANE might not be so smug


(Reuters) - Platinum miner Lonmin warned on Thursday it was likely to miss its full year production and cost targets after losing thousands of ounces following violent clashes between unions that forced it to freeze mining at its South African operations.
The miner said eight Lonmin workers and two policemen had been killed in the violence that began last Friday -
Adding to its woes, the company said its chief executive, Ian Farmer, had been diagnosed with a serious illness and taken to hospital. Chairman Roger Phillimore has temporarily taken on Farmer's day-to-day responsibilities.

OUR BUDDY MARY FETSCH

This guy on twitter got me looking through some of my old videos and I remember this one of our pal Mary getting ready to do an interview:

What's it really like being a bus driver?


One of the saddest blasts from the pasts

The death of Donia Garcia-Her funeral was held the same day as her retirement party was scheduled. It shook me up big time.

I really did love working at Trimet-it's almost like a dream now

WHY IS THE PUBLIC SO STUPID?

It has always amazed me that the public easily swallows the bullshit that people like Mcfarlane sling.

REMEMBER THE CASE OF JOSE MEJA POOT

Being short 25 cents cost him his life due to the stupidity and arrogance of a TRIMET BUS DRIVER!

Operators, you are fare INFORMERS not fare ENFORCERS. When will you ever get it?
