Fun little trivia nugget:

“We only have to be lucky once. You have to be lucky every time”

....is a quote famously attributed to .....

the IRA, in a threat to blow up Margaret Thatcher.

It has since hilariously worked its way into popular culture as a motivational quote. Ironic.

Makes sense, THAT'S for sure~!!!! Love it, Eugene~!!!

My above quote is from a famous poet/laureate .. if anyone recognizes it. It mirrors something that Old School and G'town would say, tbh!

This NEXXT one is from a fellow LTL driver . . . and if he reads this thread, may recognize what he has penned.

Also, with company sponsored training there is a job at the end of the tunnel.

And this, from a recruiter extraordinaire, that most of usn's aren't qualified to drive for, but still shows up to help. (Love this guy.)

Best advice for those worried about pay: Have hours available to drive.

Good day to all; Hubby's home and it's my bedtime, finally! (<<< As Rob T. wakes up for work....LoL!)

LTL:

Less Than Truckload

Refers to carriers that make a lot of smaller pickups and deliveries for multiple customers as opposed to hauling one big load of freight for one customer. This type of hauling is normally done by companies with terminals scattered throughout the country where freight is sorted before being moved on to its destination.

LTL carriers include:

  • FedEx Freight
  • Con-way
  • YRC Freight
  • UPS
  • Old Dominion
  • Estes
  • Yellow-Roadway
  • ABF Freight
  • R+L Carrier

Company Sponsored Training:

A Company-Sponsored Training Program is a school that is owned and operated by a trucking company.

The schooling often requires little or no money up front. Instead of paying up-front tuition you will sign an agreement to work for the company for a specified amount of time after graduation, usually around a year, at a slightly lower rate of pay in order to pay for the training.

If you choose to quit working for the company before your year is up, they will normally require you to pay back a prorated amount of money for the schooling. The amount you pay back will be comparable to what you would have paid if you went to an independently owned school.

Company-sponsored training can be an excellent way to get your career underway if you can't afford the tuition up front for private schooling.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

"It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great."

This is actually a 'QUOTE of a QUOTE.' ... (The original was coined in a movie; I'll take that, even!)

Hugs guys & gals..

Eugene.. knowing that ... how did you not know Alexander Pope ?!? That's one of my LIFE quotes; as are many by Oscar Wilde, ie: "Be yourself, everybody else is already taken." LoL.. how true!

Okay, one more.. and yes y'all's. Quotes OF Quotes. I like exercising the good ole' memoirs of the mind, haha!

Is it Pain, or is it Pleasure? Is it Work, or is it just Weariness? Is it a Living, or something more akin to a Lifestyle?

NO HOLDS BARRED.. pen the author, the poet; matters not. I'm not a 'laureate' but I SURE DO love a good 'coin' when I get it~!!
