Jamie, stop doing that!

I have:

1). Ignition switch key on it's ownkey chain

2). Truck key and lock* key on retractable cord belt attachment thing

3). Truck key and lock key on caribiner clip on opposite side of belt, along with my Leatherman

4). Flat truck key in wallet

5). Truck key and lock key clipped in my shower bag

6). Truck key and lock key clipped in my laundry bag

7). Truck key in magnetic case under cab

Overkill? Well...I am not going to get locked out :-)

*I have a Warlock set with padlocks, brake cuff lock, gladhand lock, and kingpin lock all keyed alike.

I swear.. I locked my keys in my truck yet for a second time since I went solo... it's terrible, I noticed it as I was shutting the door but I couldn't catch it in time... embarrassed.gif

It's weird because yet again I some how got my phone just like last time, like I knew... rofl-3.gif

Thought I had a key zipped tied outside the truck, but it's not there. So yay me.

Rainy is looking to employ someone like you to stand guard outside her dungeon. Only requirement is to look menacing while carrying a bunch of keys. rofl-3.gif

All kidding aside, it looks like you got all your bases covered. Good advice.

I have 3 keys currently, one always in my ignition, one in my wallet and my key chain. I plan to have a few more made, my old truck I had 6 keys.

My 2019 Cascadia won't let me lock myself out. Must use the key to lock it once I close the door. My prior 2015 Cascadia wasn't so forgiving.

FAB won't allow us to make spares nor do they give us one. Working locally, I rarely get out of the truck for any period of time. The couple times I have locked the door, I did from the outside. Now my personal vehicle, I definitely have a spare in my wallet. That has saved me a ton of aggravation a few times.

I have a key in the ignition, 1 in my pocket, 1 on my badge lanyard, and 1 hidden under the hood. As for those customers that demand the drivers keys, I have a handfull of old toyota forklift keys I hand them.

I love the places that have you disconnect from the trailer, put a glad hand lock on the trailer, AND THEN ask for your key!!

....and then want you to wait inside while it is loaded. Seriously?!?!?

That was very expensive lesson for me to learn. $160 to be exact. That's what I paid the locksmith to pick my lock in 5 seconds. That'll teach me for being to lazy to hang one by my DEF tank with a zip tie like Rainy told me to do 1000 times. Now I have keys everywhere.

Well... Rainy locked herself out of the 2017 International on a Sunday in PA....$250 and the guy drove up in a Mercedes SUV. Made me think about changing careers. So after hammering into your head, I still screwed up.

My first day on the road after my surgery and a lockout and I exploded the fore extinguisher while driving. My FM said, "Wow, You are rusty!" thanks dispatch. real help you are lol

My last student and I got trucks at the same time and I walked him into the parts shop.and we both got spares to tie so we didnt screw up lol

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.
