No ELD

What a fiasco. Not sure why you’re placing your loyalty with this outfit with what you’ve posted on here. This place makes me think about all the gates locked up on a Monday morning and no advance notice. Indeed, RUN AWAY NOW. There are way too many other good places to work out here and life is too short to tolerate operating like that circus.

Trainer Driving while trainee in the top bunk

Report it ASAP. That way you’re covered and the company is covered. Don’t worry about that trainer. He sure wasn’t thinking about you, or worried, when he went against company policy and common sense which caused all this. Don’t ignore seemingly minor health problems. You could have a concussion or worse.

That sounds like a real quality outfit you’ve signed on with there. Not.

Tight TA Lot

I’d bet a truck to its driver side pulled out, but didn’t pull forward enough and ripped that front end off. Lazy....

Leaving For School On Midnight May 4th

You’re doing fine, and you’ll get it, Doug. It just takes a lot of practice, so don’t get discouraged.

Correct. It may have had nothing to do with the location, his company or even his job. These were all happenstance, present when he decided to call it quits from everything forever. Anything at this point is all speculation.

A tip for the Illinois tollway

I’ve seen that happen a bunch, too. I’ve also gotten jammed up where I could not stay left for the EZPass and ended up at the booth. Better than cutting across traffic any day. Good point, Bobcat Bob.

Question about my next trip

You’re heading north out of the Gulf Coast, so there are going to be hills no matter what the route.

Question about my next trip

I don’t think so at all, but you’ll do some shifting. Nothing major.

Question about my next trip

You’ll have some big hills and rolling terrain, but nothing I’d consider mountainous. There will some dropping of gears. I’d compare it to a lot of Kentucky.

Swift new recruits

As Brett pointed out earlier, make sure you know all the details and read all the fine print before you sign on the dotted line.

Schneider in HOV lane

Plenty of signs up there, just got to read them, no matter how heavy the traffic is. Reminds me of Bill Engvall.....”Here’s your sign!”

Rainy I have a sister in Springfield who might consider a border.

But she is a hoarder

So is Rainy. She has told stories about all of the stuff crammed in her truck!

We’re not hoarders! We’re Collectors.smile.gif

Energy drinks

Okay Matthew, let’s break it down to the simplest terms for you to get my point. Try to keep up by reading what I have typed. Go back and re-read it several times if needed. Okay, here we go: Energy drinks are bad for the human body. Proven medical fact. Don’t do something bad to your body by using them. One a day, one every hour, or one a month. They are bad for the human body. Still with me? Still following along? Read this last, final sentence and try and take it all in. If you never use an energy drink there will be no problems caused by an energy drink. Got it?
