Mentor is out of control. Is this stuff typical?

I'm a 32 year old woman in her mentorship. They placed me with my first Mentor, and I had a hard time with him. He yelled at me, berated me, and I felt like I couldn't drive with him. He told me straight-up that women shouldn't be driving. I told the Company, and they issued me a second trainer. They told me this guy was much better, and would be much easier to work with.

So they placed me with another trainer, but this guy is completely out of control. I'm talking blow, hookers, gambling, he does it all. I've never met somebody so off-the-chain like this guy. He's a 26 year old from Russia. He respects me, has never propositioned to me or anything, but he has kicked me out of the truck for hookers before. I have so many stories.

Last night he gave me forty bucks to go dine at the buffet while he used the sleeper to have sex with a hooker.

We were at a stop-light, and he was ****ed off about something the Office said to him. So he picked a fight with another driver over the radio, they both pulled over, and they both went at each other like rock-em-sockem robots, shook hands and he just goes back to driving. I had never seen any **** like this before.

We stopped at a Hotel in Amarillo, it was just a little way from a strip-club. I tagged along to play some pool. I go to the back and he's snorting a line off of this girls back.

We were at a truckstop, and him and a few others throw a chair, a small table, and start playing Poker. So more illegal gambling. He lost like $700 that night.

We were at a Wal-Mart, and he has me pretend to be his sister to get this girls number. He dissapeared for a day and a half at this girls House when we should have been on the road.

He's a lease-operator, so I know he pays the money on the truck, but is this typical for mentors? I learn alot more from him than I did the previous trainer. He's shown me alot of different tricks, saved me in NYC and NJ. (He thinks NYC is 'easy' and men who don't drive it are pussies). My Shifting has gotten so much better with him. So I mean he's a great trainer, but is the other stuff normal or is it just the 'price of learning'?
