I am actually fine with it, its the wife thats not

I understand that. Happy wife, happy life. You know what's best for your family and that's what you have to do.

I think you would be a great truck driver. You have made a great decision stopping here to do some research.

Before I landed at FedEx, I applied to roehl, prime, Maverick, TMC and Pam. Roehl, Maverick and Pam said yes, the others said no. FedEx also told me no the first time I applied. They said yes the second time. I got her to agree by going to counseling. That's how bad I wanted this. By the time I was ready to go,I couldn't do it. I felt guilty and selfish.

The nos is what made me decide I wouldn't pay for school. I couldn't drop 5k on an investment that would have no returns. I kept working and saving to go away for training, but by the time I saved up enough to not get a check for a while. I was comfortable and thought about paying for school again. Then I got into a nasty car accident that drained those funds.

By this point a year and half went by with no progress and I just bit the bullet.
