Need help with issue

Thanks Kearsey, solid suggestions as usual from yourself.

Steven, I’m not going to create a problem or do something stupid to get out of this situation. I will either request a new trainer regardless of how it looks or ride it out. I’m not going to compound the problem.

Bobcat, no i haven’t spoken to him man to man. I wasn’t sure if it would be appropriate in this regard. Also, it’s not just flirting on the cb, it’s everything Ive posted and just the situation in general. You can always turn a cb off/down if needed. This is a situation I’m in 24/7.

Keith, I was raised in a conservative home in Texas. I have been around plenty of gay people in my other career and school and it doesn’t bother me. I don’t agree with it, but that doesn’t matter. I treat everybody with respect. There’s a difference between normal behavior and just being brash and flaunting. A cutoff shirt and short, short shorts is flaunting in my opinion. As is flirting on the CB. No, he has never crossed the line with me.

Ok I figure a “moderator” would have a bit more input instead of trying to be a smart a$$. If your comment was true I would have never gotten on the truck as it was obvious from the very beginning. There’s a difference between hating somebody because of the way they are or being uncomfortable. If being uncomfortable in your eyes makes me homophobic, so be it.

Thanks for the replies. I don’t think good training for 30-45 days is worth me being this uncomfortable when I could get good training and be comfortable. I would be more comfortable with a trainer that has a bad temper than be in this situation. Also, a woman trainer would be just fine, I don’t care. I don’t agree that this is the same as politics and religion because your normal can’t see somebody’s politics or religion. You can definitely see this as it’s being flaunted in my face daily. In today’s culture with the SJW and the “if you don’t agree with me then you’re wrong” crowd I’m a little hesitant to ask for a new trainer when the reason is obvious. The problem is the over the top flamboyance, daisy dukes, flirting, and just the in general man trying to be a woman. It’s absolutely disgusting. If I say one wrong word to him or to my driver manager I could be seen as being homophobic. This ultra sensitive world we now live in makes things more tricky. I just can’t call my driver manager and honestly tell him how I feel. I have to carefully craft my sentences which is ridiculous.

Hey guys, I’m going to ask for advice and be as respectful as I can. I’ve been a long time lurker and really enjoy this site and the advice you all give. I’m working for a major carrier (would prefer not to say who) and on my trainers truck. My trainer is 34 and has been driving for 5 years. The issue I’m having is he is gay, very flamboyant, and very emotional. He wears makeup, wears very short shorts on the truck, sometimes wears halter tops, etc. Several times he has flirted with truckers over the CB calling them honey, baby, cutie, etc. Its driving me absolutely crazy! I’m just very uncomfortable with this situation. He’s been a pretty good trainer but I don’t want to be around this for 30-45 days. I was raised with values that don’t support/agree with his lifestyle and I don’t want to be living with him in a box for this long. I understand I will have to deal with people I don’t agree with in this industry and that is just fine, but there’s a difference between dealing with people and temporarily living with them. Instead of being PC, please think about what you would do if you were in this situation and let me know. Thanks
