Anger - Not From Trucking, It's A Personal Matter.

I am going to keep this short, but in the past, I have been an angry person.

I blamed trucking, I blamed this person and that person, but in the end, anger comes from within, outside factors are only a symptom. I used to yell at people on the CB, get mad at guys taking too long on the pumps, and even judged people for the way they looked.

One thing in life will always hold true, however, that in which we project on others in only a mirror of what we dislike about our selves.

I have combated these problems through self-reflection in the form of meditation and exercise. I have found the more I eat right, walk, do my yoga, and practice keeping a zen attitude when things get stressful, the better I feel, and the more others enjoy being in my presence.

As you can see, one thing in this post holds true, everything that can be done to make our lives better leads back to ourselves.

Anywho, I am sitting at Sysco in Front Royal, getting ready to hit the hay so I can run early in the morning once the guard shack opens, I thought I would share this little bit of hindsight with my fellow drivers.

Peace be with you, Chris

Its to keep their drivers from escaping before they've used their full 14 hours.

Good for you for working on fixing this, always being frustrated doesn't help anyone.

I'd say they are hardly guards, haha. However, being that there are plenty of preloads out here, it is important to have them. However, they can't give out BOLs on Saturdays for the loads, they can at 0700. My trailer is loaded, I walk over to the trailer every now and again to check that the reefer is operating correctly although it's not my responsibility as of yet. It's about a half a mile from where the dedicated building is.

Reefer:

A refrigerated trailer.
