Relax and breath. You will be fine. I once made a poor decision and ended up on an icy hill, stuck. They had to send a tow truck to get me out of the way of traffic. As long as only your pride got hurt. At least you learned something.

I just makes me freak out I just feel bad for my mentor. I tend to learn from mistakes. It just because what my mentor said this would effect my driving record for 3 years

Ya I have calm down on this. I tend to keep a level head tho it may get to me I will move on its not the end of the world I have been in wores places then getting stuck in the snow was just me being inexperienced. As I say you don't learn unless you make some mistakes and learn from them. I am not perfect and that is ok no one is perfect.

No worries, that should not go on your record. Frankly, your company should probably not sent you into the snow this early in your career.

Was kind of my fault. I went some where I should have not gone. The fact I am in a truck that is an automatic make it harder to getting out of snow. In my mind I see snow in a parking lot or some where on the road don't go there.

You didn't hit anything, did you? Where WERE you .. in a lot? Truck stop? Shipper/receiver? Public highway?

Just wondering . . . are you with Swift? Was your mentor in the seat beside you, as you were driving?

Jammer . . . what does "rennet" mean in trucking?!??! (Here I thought I was the walking dictionary; apparently not, haha! . . . all I know is curdled milk/makes cheese . . ?!?!?)

Bryan, don't overthink it. It was JUST a tow. Yeah, might have rocked it out w/a manual. Your mentor is 'holding' that 3 year 'record' over your head, because he WILL probably catch slack, as well. Sadly, it's part of being a trainer. I'm just wondering why he didn't suggest you NOT to go, where you DID go. Hmmm.

Just a few questions, and some brief thoughts..

Stay safe, Bryan!

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.
