Well, out of the blue George Z sent me an email saying:

I have no desire to participate or have my opinions represented on your forum.

I just wanted to let everyone know that your advice was spot on, as always, and you can be certain it's going to help a whole lot of people. Maybe George couldn't figure out how lucky he was to have you guys, but most people certainly will.

" if I some how survive the weekend. I just want to die...nothing...nothing has worked out for the past year since I unexpectedly lost my job. I am so distraught, I do not know what to do...its all hopeless now. Its like a curse."

This comment by George Z. has me a bit concerned. I have worked with a few folks in this condition and it's nothing that should be taken for granted. I've witnessed the bad results of people like this not getting help. The last place that dude needs to be is behind the wheel of a big rig.

That's too bad for George Z. He would have benefitted from advice and thoughts offered here-the purpose of the site. "God helps those that help themselves".


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

The really really sad thing is that he mentioned prime and both Turtle and I agree that he should have contacted the head of our training department. it could have been worked out. i needed somethind and he called me 20 min after i emailed him. THAT'S respect, concern, and professionalism. without going back and looking...i thought he was a veteran, which prime takes very they should. Also, states usually have funds available for training to anyone with disabilities. had he tried going to Vocational Rehab in his state, the state may have worked out a deal with a company for him to get the automatic.

i wish him the best. i understand the overwhelm and fear he is feeling, as well as the depression. unfortunately, many people see temporary situations as permanent and it is very difficult to get out of.

good luck george
