Yeah, this sounds awfully suspicious. You voluntarily got off the truck in California and drove yourself home to Delaware?

Come on. I give that about a 1 in 1,000 chance of being the real story.

There are a million different ways you could have handled the situation you describe. What you're saying makes no sense. You're so worried about the money you'll make trying to support your family but you decided to quit your job, pay for a rental car, and drive home 2,500 miles?

I don't think so.

However, this is interesting from your past:

[I have] a 15 year old felony for burglary CRST sent it up for review I was approved . Problem is I have a lot more on my record all most recent being 9 years old . Receiving stolen property, dui , criminal trespass doesn’t look to good I didn’t disclose everything just the most serious reason being it’s a lot of little charges. Again my record is clear for 9 years I had a drug problem when I was younger . I operated my own business for the last 7 years I’m a changed man that is why it is so embarrassing to bring all this up . My question is when he sends this back up for review is it going to be bad that I didn’t include it all ?

I'll tell you what might have happened. He failed to disclose his entire background and when the company finally dug it all up they kicked him off the truck. Now he's trying to save face by telling everyone it was a bad trainer at a bad company.

Whatever happened, it wasn't what he says happened. If we can't get the truth I'll just delete this story. After all, this isn't truckingfiction.com

Oh yeah? Take a selfie of you in front of your truck. Let's see it. And by the way, your picture will have the metadata in it that will include the date and time. If it doesn't, it doesn't count.

It’s rare we get “two” in two days...full moon was last week. Go figure...

Yeah, like I said in that other thread we tend to get people who are in the most extreme of emotional states. They're either frustrated or scared or disappointed and they feel compelled to get help or to publicly blame someone for their circumstances.

He doesn't have a truck. He got into a huff, then drove home to DE from Cali, supposedly. I would be surprised if it's not just another troll though.

I'm pretty sure from reading his background that once he got on the road they did a thorough check, found the criminal charges he left out, and they kicked him off the truck. No one voluntarily gets off the truck 2,500 miles from home, drives home in a rental car, then decides to keep their job and stay with the company. That's absurd.

But I'm sure we'll be getting that selfie of him on the road in front of his truck anytime now.
