The "Boogey Man" Virus

Dumbest 1 I experienced at a Loves with a McDs.....Gor my coffee 1st, go into mcds order srep behind rape line beside the order kiosk.....guy comes in stays far away from inside the counter and me.....Lady has to lean over her register to see the smuck....Asks if she can take his order......he stands there no reply looking like a manquin holding his backpack......Again she asks if she can help him,,, NOW I see his eyes and a slight nod towards me like saying I need to move away......He tweaked my bad side I walk to soda fountain called him a few choice words at his idiocy.....then i use the sanitizer near me.....he makes his order then stands where Id left my coffee on the ledge where I was standing before.....My order comes up so I think do I just grab my coffee n see how far he jumps?? Or forwarn him??

So I say " Hey ya wanna move ur butt so I can get my coffee?? Dude about jumped to the corner lol jeeeze.....in leaving I told him dude ur 1 scared little pansy !! Shaking my head, dude never uttered a word the whole time there....

We can't even get a good meal on the road with all this BS.....

What does a quarantine due to coronavirus mean for truckers?

1 of our biggest customers XPO sent out a memo, drivers are NOT to use their restrooms or break rooms.

To enter dispatch ONLY, get B.O.Ls / paperwork and exit the same way you entered....

Cool might be making inter-company switch later

Well, been here at our Riverside Terminal a week now. 2 possible co drivers flaked out, well 1 grabbed him up a co. Guess I will go to driver meeting see whats up there at 11. This finding new co driver is part of this team thing I dreaded lol

Hopefully, the CRST Dedicated recruiter gets things lined up to switch over to Gardner..... Be driving solo, the 6 western states, 5 days out 2 off @ 47 cpm.....Need steady work/checks, this up n down stuff blows....Think I can do a lot better solo, then I can drive as much as possible, even if I can stay out weeks,, n rack up miles than deal with a lazy co driver or time waster hahahaha......

4 months, 'n change, to finish my contract either way... Time has flown by, then I'm goin to Philippines again, once year 1 ,is in the books set up my retirement life lol

I have a plan and a mission to complete in under 2 years

C.R. England

Another point to consider. Say he goes off to do this, then in 2 weeks or 3 has to go home and quit school to be with you , You could be on the hook for the tuition, which ever company he starts training with. Don't need that extra burden as well on you

Yep G-Town those kinda places I am more on edge, alert just for that kinda stuff....Was under 20 mph n my foot on brake anticipating whatever might pop up lol

It was 1 of those moments when it felt like time froze that instant....Amazed at how many people I see using their dang cell phones looking down !!

Just glad my spidey senses and reflexes were on high....I am no hurry to get places especially behind the wheel of these monsters lol Have to respect their size and space needed.

Worried

Just go slow, don't rush, or let others rush you.....Get Out And Look as much as you need to prefer driver side 45/90's over a blind side any day! Co drivers been at it 2-3 months more than me, and he can't back a lick! sometimes takes him 20 minutes or more, in a parking lot or dock.....Few times I just did it for him when he gets twisted up and can't fix it....Patience, n practice,practice,practice....You'll get it just not over nightgood-luck.gifgood-luck.gif
