Well put sir....Two words I learned a long time ago...Yes ma’am

In my short life if there's anything I have learned over and over again is that the wife is always right.

Disregard everything we have said. Your wife is right, always has been, always will be.

Hey Justin what's the word? Did you take the job?

I just started with a semi-local company. It's a furniture company with a trucking division--the company is locally owned and operated but I run regional to pick up their freight for them. They were pretty eager to take me on, even with 200 trucks, but they're totally legit and wonderful to work for. But your wife may also see something you don't, so if your wife is wary you should be too. Our spouses tend to be capable of more subjectivity about these things than we are since we're the ones living in the trucks!

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

I'm making the change. My wife had concerns but they were answered by the company themselves. When I turned my application in the boss and his wife both were hospitable. After seeing their size, 5 trucks, my wife realized why they were eager. Matter of fact I was told after 6 months they would find a deal on my "ideal" truck. I got a text that the driver that I'm replacing, has the truck I want. So they went ahead and gave it to me. I turn in my truck next week to TMC. They tried retaining me but couldn't really match what the smaller company could.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.
