Fighting the Trucking industry.

Old school

I might make mention, if the door opens, that i have about 40 years experience managing dozens of customers a week. Not only for myself. The emoylees too, and employee scheduling. Now you dont know me, you wont hear me bragging too much. I think in the right situation i might drop that info to and interviewer, those could be pertinent skills.

OLD SCHOOL

your the one acting superior, i dont think you are, im just responding to your personal attacks. I know how to get along, im a pretty good judge of character myself, so for you to say i wasnt serious, shows me your lacking.

So your condemning me its called Pot/kettle/black......for the spiritual its called pharisee or hypocrite......you dont know me, to venture out and Judge me already, is making yourself superior too me....

I don't really think you know near as much as you'd like to think. I did discover one "insightful" comment you made in another conversation though.

i do like the entertainment part, its fun. Ive got thick skin a good sense of humor and like to mix it up a lil bit now and then with some oh lord forgive me.'s, mixed in with colorful words. You obviously have misconstrued me, i was very serious, wasnt playing any game, never been here before, im not an old poster come back to troll or haunt you. However i have some vetran experience on internet forums. So i know things.....lol

Brad, we're all truck drivers. We talk straight and plain. You'd do well to communicate with the audience you've got.

I've stayed out of your discussions for a reason. I consider myself "insightful." I saw you from your first comments. I knew you weren't serious. You are entertaining though.

Brett,

No i cant say whats on my mind. In here it will be misconstrued, or somebody will think i owe them something because they were here longer. Or it might just get me banned, or it might not Glorify God. Soooo i can see i have to be very measured and constrained in my speech, i dont have the freedom to speak openly without attack or suspscion.

Just like my question are you spiritual, you kind of sort misconstrued. Ive found, spiritual people have some LINGO that if you speak the lingo words people understand. So spiritual people i try to speak in that lingo, so it becomes easier sometimes to convey a message.

Then theres those, who might understand the spiritual lingo, in a different LINGO or Language. The example would be, SPIRITUAL LINGO: reap what you so.

Translated into a semi spiritual lingo: KHARMA

Translated into a lingo non-spiritual people can understand: Every dog has his day.

So you can match your speech, to identify with, or reach your audience.

In asking you are you Religious, i was trying to identify what lingo, i could best use with you. You do seem to respond to kindness and truth. That is spiritual too. Yet most people respond to kindness in truth and not be spiritual.

No ulterior motives in asking that question. Are you spiritual, except to speak a lingo.....so to speak.

Oh also, i forgot. No i dont have a CDL, I HAD one i got on my own before the DUI, from my oil patch days. It was not on the state license, i got my DUI on, because i gave it up from previous state, because at the time i was poor, broke, could not afford the medical cert.

I learned to drive from my father who was a driver in the military, but also from growing up on the farm. At 12 i was driving huge tractors, and farm equipment, sometimes 48 hrs straight. Also the big Peterbuilts on the road hauling grain, sorghum, sileage, and later employed by my father, driving a split shift, 12 speed international......thats how i was able to get the CDL in the oil patch, they knew i could drive and they let me take a truck down and get my CDL. Funny thing was, i never studied for the permit and passed. My father taught me well and hands on experience is great.

Brett

Are you religious? Just curious, you e heard reap what you sow? Or Kharma? Or all dogs have their days?.......no matter what language you speak it in, or what walk of life you use it from.......it is a truth.

Mistake on Swift application.

PJ,

Thanks, well said. Dealing with personalities and ego's and also the way another can see, something totally different, than the way someone else would. I like to identify peoples strengths and weakness's, i can receive from their strengths, and HELP them in their weakness.

Steve Reno,

Yeah, i was a stupid kid back then, i remember i got 2 felony driving while suspended, back then. 35 years ago. I think thats why i said 2 Dui, i, transposed 2 Dui to recruiter. I was in so much trouble, i forget some of it . I Some of it is just mentally blocking that time period.

Now that i have totally become something new. I have never had another DUI, or suspension , i have to drive for a living too. Not just to the office and back home or the grocery .

I wasnt prepared for the question have you had any DUI's? Because Swift, trucker truth, say they only worry about DUI's 7 years back.

So i am prepared to be honest, i dont want to add the caveat, and if you find something, i forgot, it wasnt intentional, and if i harmed you in that, i will pay you back........

But i will say that if it comes down too it, and someone gives me chance to say something, rather than just slam the door in my face.

Obviously, the courts have said, no matter what contract words you use. You cant break laws and make money off peoples backs like that. Its a win for Truck Drivers

I still applaud those who suffered and fought. They knew it was illegal, they got Justice in court. No matter what the trucking industry tried to shove down their throat, and the cronie capitolists who enforced these illegal activities.

This is NOT about company drivers who didn't get paid. This is about lease ops who are ticked they couldn't handle running a business and failed. Now they are whining and crying.

Prime's first line of the contract states "You agree to become an independent contractor and will not be an employee of New Prime Inc." It goes on for about 50 pages of explaining the costs and responsibilities of a lease op, and most do not read it. Oliviera stated he had no idea the truck was not his to keep which means he didn't read the contract.

If anything, this case proves that leasing is not better than being a company driver.... and that some people are idiots.

If he was successful in his mind, he wouldn't be suing and many lease ops feel they are successful and they don't sue.

With your permit, you do not get paid to deliver and guess what.... I signed a contract for that too.

I dont know if links work, but the above story about people fighting back, standing up, and not taking the crap, is inspirational . It takes guts and courage to fight the giants in the land, even on your own The result, is the Drivers win.

Thank you to those who suffered, and perservered.
