I'm not really sure why you took offense. I thought I was giving some good advice.

"Digital Gangster" - that was good, only I don't get insulted as easily as you! smile.gif

For your information i have been doing that and im still struggling with it so instead of insulting someone just give the advice man! No need to be a digital gangster. Like a i said, i been in the passenger and watching aswell as actually driving but its my instructor he who is 72 years old gets angry and starts yelling at us and he's very hard of hearing too. Yesterday i thought he was going to have a heart attack he was so mad i had to let him know that he can't get mad and to be a professional becuase he was so red and sweating like hell. The oldman will probably have a stroke soon poor guy.. so we were worried about him. Before all you guys start talking **** just give the advice i don't know you so you aren't hurting my feeling i don't even know what you look like. Just give the advice not your personal feeling on me

Thanos, you really need to sit in the passenger seat while your instructor is driving and watch their feet when they are coming to a stop. You obviously don't get this whole concept or understand what's being said. It's important during training that you pay attention and observe how things are done if you can't understand the verbal instructions.

Maybe you're too thin skinned for this. Insulting those for trying to help you......real nice. Those before old schools response explained exactly what you need to do and you still dont understand. We've all been there, it's new and frustrating but coming here and asking for advice and then getting ****ed off because you're told to observe because you're not understanding the words makes someone an A-hole, or digital gangster? We all volunteer our time here to help newcomers. Getting butt hurt off somebody's suggestion is a good way to alienate yourself on this forum. You cant appreciate the FREE ADVICE you're given and instead criticize them? Why are they going to waste their time when others will appreciate the advice given. You calling out old school is comical. I've been around this forum atleast 4 years and have yet to see a circumstance where old school was a "gangster". Every post of his has been professional and informative. The moderators, and most of the experienced drivers on this forum are what this industry needs more of. High performing professionals willing to go the extra mile to help new drivers. IF YOU'RE THIS UNSTABLE DURING SCHOOL FIND A NEW CAREER. YOU HAVENT SEEN ANYTHING YET. the frustration you'll experience at times on the road is far greater than an instructor getting irritated because you dont understand. We've all been there Thanos, there are thousands of new drivers in your situation getting their license every week. Take a deep breath and relax. I struggled greatly with shifting and not killing the truck. I watched my fellow students and YouTube videos explaining shifting and it helped me.

If you need help feel free to ask us but if you're going to cop an attitude like your last post don't bother.

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.

Thanos, I don't think Old School is a digital Ganster...and you came here asking for advice, and it has been said multiple ways. You also tell your instructor to not to get mad at you and to be professional....You sound like the common denominator here. Check yourself, before you attack others trying to help you succeed.

Thanos that is absolute perfect advice and in no way insulting.

If you are that sensitive and defensive within a group of dedicated people trying to help you, your career will be fraught with stress and anxiety.

OH MY GOSH! The last thing I would ever call Old School is arofl-1.gifrofl-1.gif digital gangster! I'm rolling on the floor laughing right now, figuratively. Old School is going to be teased about this forever!

Well said.

If you can’t handle a little constructive criticism, you might as well go home now, you will never make it in this industry

Use the brake to come to dead stop but push the clutch in before the engine stalls. Brake, then clutch.

I'm waiting at a shipper. Popcorn at the ready.

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.
