Todd is like the “Where’s Waldo” of Trucking Truth.

If there was a Todd photo we could put a mask and gloves in him and put him in all kinds of photos...and places.

That’s right you need to put your ear on the 5th wheel to test grease depth...

Maybe Todd is actually Brett messing with all of us. He does have a great sense of humor...

I’ll never tell.

Western express is putting me on a bus tomorrow to go to orientation. I was told as long as there not DOT accidents they can work with them. I’m beyond relived that my persistence is paying off 🙏.

The contract was for my schooling which with England it works like this. If I stay with them for a year then I don’t need to pay them back for my tuition. They terminated my lease with them when they put me down as disqualified to drive with them. I was told I could go somewhere else but the first place I applied(CFI). Won’t take me because these incidents were handled in house but England is reporting it on driver fax

Western Express? Dutch Maid? Kinda all I've got, atm. When you say terminated your 'lease' with them.. were you an L/P driver?

Just like the trainee being sexually exploited by his female trainer ... remember THAT one? I'll never tell, either. DEF'ly wasn't me.. I just 'KNOW' things, haha!

Thats great news Eric. Keep your eye on the prize and stick it out atleast 1 year. If you can do that and put more time since your last incident you'll have many more options available if you feel Western Express isn't a good fit for you.

Please keep us updated how things turn out.
