You're going to get hammered by insurance for the next 3 years until that falls off your record.

IMO if you throw a temper tantrum in the safety office you probably shouldnt be on the road. Youd probably still have a job if you could have showed some self control.

you sure showed him huh!

But to answer your orginal question you could maybe start a paper company but good luck getting insurance having 5 months of experience and a accident

I put my paints on 1 leg at a time just like him

Yeah, but he puts his on because he has a job to go to in the morning.

Why do the tiniest brains always seem to be paired with the biggest mouths?

Good luck with your life. You're gonna need it. Like they say, if you're gonna be dumb, ya gotta be tough.

The dumbest thing you can do is act like you're the boss when you're talking to the boss.

I'm sorry, but I have absolutely no sympathy for an adult who throws a tantrum like a two year old and then gets canned for it. In fact, I have to admit I kinda like it when that happens. It's hysterical.

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.

1 preventable shouldnt have gotten you fired. What is the whole story.... where did you work what happened with the accident.... and who did you apply to tgat "no one will hire" you?

And there you have it.

I wouldn’t hire you either. And if anyone does, you’ll probably get fired there too.

Good luck, you’re going to need it, unless you lose the attitude.

Like the others have said. You and your attitude got you fired. Safety's job is to review the accident with you. Your job in that meeting is to humble yourself, admit what you did wrong and tell them what you learned. We don't even know for sure what the accident was and why the truck was towed.

It seems like most who come here with your attitude, you couldn't handle the truth. Driving might not be the best job for you.

Good luck.

5 YEARS of experience, maybe (leaning towards maybe NOT). 5 months - NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

You aren't going to get insurance to run interstate (and if you do, it will cost as much as your truck payment or more).

And if the atitude displayed here is indicative - if you think your DM/company is hard to get along with, wait until you deal with the myriad of state and local agencies it takes just to get on the road.

Not to mention, any company that will "lease you on" requires one years OTR experience.

If you are independently wealthy, and can afford to take this on as a HOBBY (while pouring every last cent into it) - GO FOR IT.

I'm choosing to stay off the personality rant here - and just giving the FACTS. Even for someone like me - with knowledge, healthy attitude and capitalization - I wouldn't touch buying a truck with a TEN FOOT POLE (or 53' trailer).

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I prefer to put my paints on with a brush and roller, occasionally I'll use my airless sprayer.

I don't really care which method I use... As long it doesn't get on my legs.
