I hate to sound sarcastic, but I’ve drunk more coffee than the recruiters have burnt diesel fuel. I think if i leave is he railroad, I’ll just buy another Pete and go back to hauled my cows again.

I think you enjoy sarcasm.

David, I'm just gonna cut to the chase on this one. Simple fact is you ARE going to be considered a Rookie again. Sorry, just the way it is.

My advice, check your ego and suck it up, Rook!

If you didn't want to end up being a rookie again, you shouldn't of left in the first place.

Judge me however you like, i speak my mind!! I was trucking when most people on this forum was in high school.. maybe earlier. Fact is, i took the railroad job for benefits, not exactly the pay( which I’d good!) but I’ve evolved into the mindset that money isn’t everything!! I’ve rolled in 85,000-100,000 a year since i hired out, but your constantly under the microscope and threatened to be run off for rule violations. I’ll alway be a cow hauler at heart!! It’s a demanding job that most couldn’t do, or wouldn’t do. No sleep, cold nights by yourself loading in god only knows where, kicked, mashed, and knocked down, but it’s a lot of fun sometimes. Try it!! Then get back with me.

Yeah well we keep it professional and pretty low key here. We're not judging you, we're simply tell you like it is. That's why we're called TruckingTruth - that's what we do.

Try it!! Then get back with me.

I never hauled steers in a big rig but I've raised steers and had to load them into trailers. I loved it. I'm looking to buy some land now to set up a homestead with a bunch of animals.
