I'm sitting at a Knight terminal today. I'm kind of stuck here for the day, and it's raining so much I can't go outdoors. The rats are so thick in here my head is about to explode! They're actually trying to outdo each other with their bragging about how badly they've threatened their driver managers and terminal managers. I'm seriously thinking about ordering A Round of Egg Rolls for Everyone!

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Driver Manager:

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.

You will endure and hopefully come out the other end with entertaining lessons to share with us all. Are you really sure you want prayers?

I think we should be praying for "them"...they need the help.

That's why I cant sit at the coffee counter in truck stops. Just cant stand the Federal Marshal stories, how they cussed out their dispatcher , outsmarted the DOT , the waitresses they've charmed, the coast to coast 100mph state police escorts when they've had a death in the family and all the lies about their military service. Everybody was a SEAL. Green Beret, Recon, Ranger, Sniper or some other black ops bad guy. Didn't the Army have any old dog faces soldiers, the Navy any old swabbies and the Marines plain old grunts?

I cant stand it...just cant stand it. I feel for you Old School. I will pray for an early departure from that place.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

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.

You might want to be more specific in your prayers.

I feel for you Old School. I will pray for an early departure from that place.

Man, don't title a topic like that! Scared the H. E. Double out of me!

Since you'll be there all day, I guess the mechanics are changing an air filter?

You need to check out The Middlesex Diner. Great food!

Carlisle is the place to go when you don't need a 34 hour reset!

Tell the terminal manager I said to put down the coffee or the energy drink, whichever one he has in his hand.
