First off, at one point in my career, I was hooking and and spotting trailers all day long, day after day.
My "office" as you call it, appreciated the city drivers being safety conscious and taking the effort to do so, they encouraged it.
There you go making things up, saying that my actions consumed 70 minutes of the company's precious time.
If you read what I said instead of getting your panties twisted, you would see that it only takes 5 minutes to set the brakes on the trailer alone, which would only be 35 minutes a day, if they all needed adjustment.
To have a crew of drivers taking the time to adjust brakes, the company doesn't waste a whole lot of money on useless, whiney, lazy assed drivers who stand around the shop wasting time while waiting for the mechanics to do it for them, all the while chanting "It's not in my job description, it's not my job. Hurry, I'm late, the office is mad at me, it's your fault, my life is ruined!"
If truck drivers can't take the time and make the effort to learn how to perform the simplest of tasks, like adjusting brakes and tightening wheel nuts, changing a light bulb, repairing a glad hand, it's no wonder they make minimum wage and are destined for extinction!

What's this different world you keep talking about?
Southern Ontario and the rest of the known world?
Someone else's world?
