Haha, yes he did, but he's still focusing on being the best at whatever he's doing now. There's a fairly short life in sports, but drivers can keep going on and on and... well, you get the idea.

He kind of did. We all wanted to “Be Like Mike”. No Mike, no Air Jordan’s...

Yes, I'm dating myself, but hopefully some of you old timers can understand my analogies. I love sports analogies. They're really fitting for the competitive environment of trucking. What's sad is a lot of drivers have no concept of the competition they are in out here. They think they are somehow responsible for training their dispatcher to treat them better, and they miss out on so many benefits that they could be attaining by being better performers.

Dispatcher:

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.

A useful thought just occurred to me concerning the new upgrade Brett wrote of. Hopefully it has a “modify post” ability, or an edit button.

Nope, it does not. That's what the "Preview" button is for. If I allow people to modify their posts they're going to go back after the fact and make changes. Plus, you can't believe how often someone will get mad and think, "I'll show them!!!" and go back and add in a bunch of cussing and nasty garbage.

That's not going to happen. People go back and change stuff when they're losing a debate. It's important we keep an accurate record in many of these conversations.

There is a way to preview and then edit a comment before posting it. Unfortunately most people don't use the feature.

I'm kind of a hybrid, old timer, new driver. But you always make sense to me. I've learned so much from all the moderators and experienced drivers here. Today is no exception.

I hope Brett is serious about the new site design working the same way. This site is so easy to navigate and UNCLUTTERED with useless stuff. Please, I don't want to have to learn this all over again!!!

It's common for me to go in stores that I've gotten used to only to find that they've moved stuff I need. I hate that! And just when I've memorized potholes, they move them to a different location. Really irritates me.
