Brett I thank you. You have made a couple posts like this since I have been here. It really puts things in perspective for newbies who feel frustrated because they are learning and having backing problems. It is easy for new drivers to fall into the "I suck at this mentality" after hearing negative people.

My mom is Irish from South philly and her family is huge and mostly drunk. She hates them and drinking. When I told her how sober the drivers are she was shocked. So even people not in the industry still have distorted views. She saw this as a low life job cause of the 70s...when I sent her pics of Sapps Bros bidets and some of the Petros that look like malls she changed her mind hahah

It may just be me or just a coincidence... But it seems something is changing from over the last year and a half. I think the drivers are adapting a bit more to the new way of driving. I don't hear nearly as much CB trash as I used to. I don't see as much trash on the parking lots as I used to. Still some but a little bit less. I don't hear as many arguments about the usual nothing anymore (been 6 months since I've heard or seen an argument). Not even the Obama bashing that I used to hear all the time. What's happening? I haven't even heard anyone complaining about the steering wheel holders with the flip flops.

And as a matter of fact as I sit here typing this reply out sitting at a pilot in Nitro WV, there is a problem with the fuel pumps. But no cursing or out of anger talk on the radio at all. Just the occasional question with every reply being very professional (so far). And it's hot here too. No tempers or anything. Am I still asleep and dreaming or what? Did I wake up on another planet or something?
