Dont worry the new beepers are so quiet you cant even hear your overspeed penalty!

And the ACS seat is comfortable, if you arent moving. So it looks good to people and execs and union reps sitting in it stationary at the moch up i the factory.


I take it crews aren't allowed to bring cushions from home, as McGuyver fix?


I have enough crap to carry to work evey day in a 40lb bag of books, the last thing i need to think about is carrying or forgetting a cushion. Even if it had that, it still would not make up for the fact that there is no real shock absorption.
No good deed goes unpunished.

Holy crap I came across one today and it seems like this place can’t get it right! Guess I won’t be running with the windows open this summer.
