First time i got in trouble for speeding when i was the east end yardhog, (LCJ met him) MOP said he pulled the tape on my goat and i was speeding, wasnt mad at all, didnt even seem like he cared, "Slow down..." OK then. Think
another month pasted and i got another warning after my tape got pulled, a "compliance check up". He was a little angry. Couple months later, i show up to work, both afternoon switch crews in there, other yard hog was super slow. MOP comes in and slams the door shut and scares the crap out of everyone after saying "WHO THE $%&# WAS RUNNING THAT $%&# WESTEND GOAT AFTER NINE O'CLOCK YESTERDAY???" ...... After lunch the day before we stole the westends goat to pull the ramp, i liked getting after it thinking we were a hotshot going down to the east end. So im sitting there smiling and rubbing my face, acting like im trying to remember as he's looking at me.... "Yep, it was me."......."Get your #$% outside".... Once we got out there he ripped into me good. "I #$%&@ SEARCHED HOW MANY TIMES THE SPEED WAS OVER 11.... 35 OCURRANCES, THEN I SEARCHED 12...30 OCURANCES, THEN 13.....20 TIMES.... I KNEW IT WAS YOU. TOLD YOU TO #@$%& SLOW DOWN, ID FIRE YOUR #$% BUT THEN ID HAVE TO DO THE PAPER WORK AND RIDE WITH YOU MORE, AND I JUST DONT WANNA HAVE TO DO ALL THAT$#% #$$&$!!!!!!" He was cussing and swearing up a storm just like Yosemite Sam, his face was beet red, looked like he had tears in his eyes he was so pissed. I was a little angry myself, i said "So when they ask for a kick, you want me to look at the speedometer and not go over 10?" He did some more of his Yosemite Sam impersonation, but the answer to my question was yes, no more then 10. Took my ripping, and he told me to get back in there. Everyone thought i was fired, told them nothing happened, but i cant go fast any more. Felt like i was slugging, but i told the yardmasters what happened.
Next time i saw my MOP buddy, was like none of that happened, just like it should be. I got the point, he knew i wasnt holding a grudge. Did mess with him when he road with me..."Want me to get after it???
" ...."You better not"
Later he told me one of the funniest things ive ever heard, if you want me to tell you, PM me. Be warned... its bad.
