Wrong Zack. Nobody wants to see you “hang up the keys”. Which is why we’ve been trying to help. And if you feel you’re a crappy truck driver that’s on you. You have to cut down on your dramatics man.

Zach, seems like you are staying with Swift. Glad to see it. I figure if you can do it with all the troubles you experience, (irrelevant if they are self made or not) anyone can do it. If you make it through all this crap, it will toughen you up and make you one hell of an employee. One thing I can say, you may vent on here a lot, but it seems like you keep coming back for more and one way or another keep going. Its easy for commenters here to criticize you, but at the end of the day, seems like you are still employed, still moving ahead with training and not going away. I respect that.

I guess it boils down to the fact as crappy of a trucker as I am and as much as certain people would like to see me hang up the keys and find something else I have financial responsibilities and people depending me. Washing out isn't really an option.

Actually quite a few folks on here would like me to do just that. Don, G-Town, Packrat just to name a few off the top of my head.

Frankly, I could care less if you "hang 'em up" or not. That is on you. Stating that, I don't think you will last long because you whine too much. But, since there are women who have been driving for years, no reason you can't also.
