The Proper Way To Merge?

Since it is your legal responsibility to merge and not there responsibility to let you in id say get over as soon as you safely can and respectfully leave room between you and the vehicle in front of you to attempt to streamline the process

Tempur-sealy

Anybody in here work for these guys after almost 3 yrs im looking for a local gig my 10 yr old daughter poured her heart out to me this weekend how she misses having her dad in her life and able to come to school events and so on and so forth with really weighed heavy on me and ultimately made up my mind i believe ive got the experience it takes to do this now and im confident in backing no matter whats thrown at me and i have an interview with them monday. Any specific questions i should ask them during my interview i know they claim their drivers make 100k a yr which would actually be a slight pay raise for me so thats a positive too anyway thought id see if anyone here does this account

Switched To A Local Account

Old school all of that last post seems spot on i grew up in a logging family which was obviously performance base and my mother sewed government gloves which was piece rate so im guessing it helped my drive and never say no and i cant attitude although i dont wanna do this forever and i have my moments of i should go local so i can see my kids before they are no longer kids i cant help but have that drive to do better for my family too but if a day comes i see a home daily 100k job which im sure eventually will im gonna have to turn in my joggin shoes for sprinter shoes and go for it

Id be sleepin in my bed everyday if i could make 100k next yr locally while i know in the northeast i can equal my regional pay the work itself and the hours driving to work then working 12-14 hours then driving home is an absolutely brutal schedule ive done it for my own company here and there to fill in i like my money to come easier and safer im sure most new drivers have no idea how tough that “local” schedule can be but id be willing to bet a good share of rookies would fail doing the majority of local work

Advice Please

Tonsil removal for an adult can be a literal nightmare and can take a month or more for those doubting her yes some bounce back quick but its common for infections slow healing and extreme pain also keep that in mind the pain medication you will absolutely require is a big no no so keep all paperwork
