I hear you CK, it will be nice to be home, albeit unplanned. Being home for the trainers vacation at least makes it almost acceptable. But we see this all the time, and I feel it's more crappy for a trainer who's making likely 4x what you're making to "make" you forfeit your guaranteed pay as well as extend your training time in the process. It's just not right, after you've committed your time and financial dependence to this training.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not giving you a hard time about it. If you are okay with it, that's cool. Its just one of those things that burns me up when I see it, and I want to be sure the trainees know what they're contractually entitled to.

Enjoy your hometime.

Oh believe me, I understand where you're coming from. I made a really good friend while I was in Salt Lake City over on the flatbed side, and his trainer is taking a week of home time right now. My friend lives in California, and his trainer lives in Texas. So, my buddy is stuck in a truck for a week in Houston. He chose to give up his pay during the week rather than fight for it, and is going to use a few days of this time to visit some friends from back when he served his mission near by. Again, his choice, but I probably would have had a different opinion had I been so far from home.
