I appreciate that from both of you, I really do. And yes, Brett, I can appreciate having it put straight. I may not like it every time but I'm not one for pulling punches either. So yeah, I can appreciate it.

I am kinda nervous about taking this gigantic step forward, it's going to be a big change and an even bigger challenge. But a rewarding one, I can see that.

I hope that someone does learn from my mistake, Big Scott, it would make it worth it for sure.

I for one, will never forget it.

Patrick, I missed your reply.

I agree with your comments on scrutiny from the forum members. I think it's a good lesson learned. I would rather learn most of my lessons here from you guys than on a truck stop lot somewhere. Although I'm sure I'll get plenty of that too.

Humble pie is hard to eat. Tastes terrible and hard to swallow. But it's worth it in the end.

I appreciate it.

This is an awesome thread People can read this and learn not to be offended by the hard truth. We all make mistakes. It's learning from them how we grow.

Yes' Half Pint, this is a huge jump to make. Trucking is like nothing else. I am having mostly great times and learning not to worry about things out of my control. For example, yesterday I showed up early for my delivery appointment only to find out they were closed and had to be back here today at 07:00. Then I found out I'll get detention pay for all that time. Been at the dock since 07:00 today. My light hasn't even turned red yet. Ha ha ha, $$$$. When I put in my empty call, my next adventure will begin. I fill my alone/down time and on the phone with family and friends.
