Congratulations!

LOL! I'm still trying to get used to folks calling me "Driver" also. So much more to learn I still consider myself as a student.

Thank you old school๐Ÿ˜ƒ. On Monday I got my company ID badge. I meet with a driver manager and she was trying to figure where I belonged after several questions she said okay your a "driver" it was weird to hear someone call me that. For the record though I still consider myself a student though, maybe after a year or two of experience I will be comfortable enough and feel like I have earned the right to call myself "Driver"

Driver Manager:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Absolutely fantastic! It was a pleasure and an honor to read your roller coaster of emotions and determination. Thanks for documenting everything for the rest of us.

Thank you Han Solo Cup, there is still more to come.

I totally get what you guys are saying. There are days you feel like a driver the other days you wonder what the hell's going on? I go into a truck stop and only a couple times have I sat at the drivers area. It's almost as if I don't feel I belong here yet.
