Paranoia on the road!!!!

I've personally have been awoken to a very loud crashing sound. Some guy pulled away and lost his trailer. The dead head was damaged and slightly crumpled.

That's not paranoia, that's a smart decision.

Once, I pulled a load to a Target DC that was in Pueblo. I traveled the co550 coming from the north and was greeted by a bad snowstorm. I had barely made it on time after traveling very slowly through the mountains with chains on, having 30 minutes to spare when i got there to drop it, rehook, and shut down. They only had one trailer available and the lot beside the place was packed with no where to legally shut down. I went to go find the trailer and discovered that it was a banged-up piece of junk. The tandems wouldn't release and one of the back rims was bent. It had pressure, so i considered driving 4 miles to my shut-down location and calling for someone to come out and repair the rim.

I should've taken pictures because i discovered several months later that my company decided to mark it as an incident, claiming that I damaged the rim and drove 50 miles with it.

Recently fired and am looking for another company

My company had terminated me due to a x3 policy which involved a very minor backing accident(They caught me on camera bumping into a guard arm at a terminal), tractor getting stuck while attempting to hook a trailer, and a jackknife the very next day going about 20mph(Really icy roads).

Most companies simply refuse to accept me due to safety and insurance reasons, but are there any companies who would take someone who was terminated?

Also, recruiters are idiots.
