Mario V.'s Bio

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place, and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that! I'm always gonna love you, no matter what. No matter what happens. You're my son and you're my blood. You're the best thing in my life. But until you start believing in yourself, you ain't gonna have a life.” ― Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa

TNT with Prime mean trainer need advice

Oh. He started giving me showers once he saw I got sick. I've had two so far now. Im sure he was afraid of getting in trouble. So I'm all fresh and shaved now but still a little under the weather. :( He hasn't had one shower yet!!!! Ugh so gross.

I would have told the trainer straight up " you either shower now or you don't get back in the truck, this ain't no democracy"

Seriously considering becoming a trucker

Zeck my parents are like yours abusive and manipulative. always looking out for themselves and never for me. I don't know how you managed to live with them until 25 first chance i got i set the house on fire and walked out. You seem very undecided on what to do i would have never worked for $8 an hour. You gotta look out for you cause no one else will. if you think you deserve this trucking thing then pull head from ass and start on it. I believe you can do it but you don't believe you can do it. damn $8 an hour you don't want to know what i shoved down my throat for a little bit more than that. :)

3 Strikes, I Guess I'm Out

Good thing you decided to man up and stick around, i hate quitters, they disgust me just like cowards. when things get tough instead of embracing the challenge they run off. take the opportunity to man up and learn everything again, have an open mind and absorb the information. i still got hopes for you kid.

American driver, Canadian company?

My uncle was a trucker in mexico about a decade back, he was a trucker for 9 years, he would always get stop by cops who would steal cargo from him one time apparently they tried to take too much so they he stopped them (big mistake), the cops played it cool and let him ride off into the sunset but a few miles later he got stopped by a gang known as "mara salvatrucha" they not only peeled both of his hands with a knife both stole his whole cargo aswell, he called the cops after the gang left him and eventually the same group of cops came and ticket him for driving irrationally along with a few other stupid charges. he got shot 32 times two years later and his body was thrown ditch.

do not go drive a truck into mexico, even better avoid mexico at all cost, we have it good enough here in the U.S
