I can't wait to see if he replies again or rides off into the sunset. Wait, will he get miles for that?

I drove for Navajo. Of course, most days I averaged over 400 miles, unless I was in a dock (or parked at shipper/receiver) waiting to get loaded or unloaded for four hours. Whenever someone at the company said something like that, I would say, "well I was (and I was) at a shipper/receiver for over _____ hours.

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

Ummmm Patrick, 700 a day in a 64 mph truck is totally possible so long as you're not wasting time walking around every truck stop. Keep the door closed and hammer down. Besides, you wouldn't want to run that hard unless you want a reset every 6th day but 400 a day is easy to fulfill. Hell, if you're only running 400 a day, you aren't making any money.

Patrick, I don't know how to help you. In fact, I'm not sure anyone here can help you, because the kind of help you need involves helping you discover reality and taking responsibility for your own actions and telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

For example, in this latest episode, you start by saying you were fired, but then you say you resigned. It's impossible to respond to your specific statements because it's impossible for us to say which of them are true, which are partly true, and which are false.

But I may do this, just out of curiosity. I park right near Navajo's terminal in Denver regularly for home time, and I have a couple of contacts there, so I might just see if I can get their perspective next time I'm home. They probably won't out and out tell me officially, since that would be against policy and law, but people talk so maybe I can find something from their perspective with at least as much validity as your version. That would be entertaining at least. I'm sure you know how good some trucker stories are!

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Hey everyone, just look at it this way. Within another year, Patrick can write a personal review about every trucking company in the US because he will have been hired and fired by them.

You guys continue to fuel the fire and feed the troll. As long as you keep giving him the attention he will keep coming back for more.

Patrick stated;

I don't care.

I stopped reading when I read this twice.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.
