Tell us something awesome about your day or week and something you want to vent about. it can be serious or funny.

Brag: My current trainee paid me.an incredible compliment. He said "All Prime needs to do to make millions of more dollars is to clone you as a trainer". made me blush..but i'll still brag to you all! lol

Vent: I twisted my knee and it is very stiff. The same trainee asked me if he needed to take me to "a geriatric convalescent home".

He just added 20,000 miles to his training. Lesson number 1, never make fun of the trainer

Brag: I got a thumbs up from a 4 wheeler for making a thightish turn with a set. Made me feel good someone noticed.

Rant: When I move over to let a truck merge and they match my speed in the right lane and we are running side by side . Just give me the extra second or two so I can finish my pass and move back to the right. Then you can pass me if you are faster.

Brag: Not only have I not gained weight as feared in my 2 yrs of driving, but I've actually lost 15lbs. However...

Vent: Neither my pants nor my gut size has changed, so my weight drop must be due to loss of muscle mass. I've felt the difference and I'm not happy about it so...

Brag #2: I've begun working out/exercising regularly. Imagine a flatbedder working with chains & tarps during the day, then doing squats, curls, and presses with the same equipment after work. Yup, that's me. But...

Vent#2: Working out makes me sore!

Vent: other drivers can't seem to resist filling my following distance with their trucks. They pass me just so they can get behind someone else doing the same speed as I am. I don't mind if they have another vehicle on their tail and need to get over to let them pass but, it's annoying when there's no one behind them.

Brag: My planner gets me the best loads possible because he knows he doesn’t have to worry about me. His words not mine.

Vent: People that think you just automatically should know what they are thinking. If you want me to know something please share it with me.

Brag: Got my CDL back. Vent: It shouldn't take as long as it has to get a hair follicle test results back!

CDL:
