Does your truck have a governor?

Andrey,

Yes I do...75 mph on the pedal. If this was my truck (as an OO), I'd still drive this fast...I've always driven fast in good weather. Plus, the wide open spaces out west allow for higher speeds.

Laura

Jealous. I'm governed at 64, 62 on the pedal. Still managed 681 miles on my best day, but had 7 minutes left on my clock. should have been 14 but lost 7 with construction and the weigh station. Blessed with an 8 hr bladder.

Well hell PackRat I’ve always thought you to be cultured and refined...

Couth rhymes with Truth. Truth is; I agree with PackRat Mark. You might be couth Mark but you come off as pompous, smug and a tad full of yourself. Your past... doesn’t matter. You are not teaching the class right now.

And by the way... we all post on what little personal time we have. We are not paid and all of us have one desire; to help Newbies become top performing and safe drivers. If our unedited and unrefined approach to that that rubs you the wrong way; too bad. No apology. Focus on the content, not the delivery.

I was politically correct and had to consider how sensitive people can be in my corporate job of 30+ Years. I don’t have time for that superficial BS anymore.

As expected our friend Mark replied with a nasty gram directed at me and PackRat worthy of the trash can. Which is where it went...

And Mark... I can clearly take it. I’m way beyond where you are right now. I can teach the class and have.

Okay? Do you think you are the first person coming through this forum thinking you are better than all of us? Heck no... and you won’t be the last.

Humble? Every freakin’ day... perhaps you should take your own advice a grab a slice of the pie you suggested I eat.

Yummy!

Yes. But sometimes I gotta put a jerk in their place... and hopefully help Mark realize that this forum is actually on his side. He scolded Old School multiple times...and basically hijacked thus thread to ascend his pulpit and preach to the choir he isn’t a member of yet... sorry Anne but I called like I saw it.

If he takes the same approach with his employer an/or a shipper/receiver his career will be short lived.

And honestly Mark... nobody wants to see that happen.

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.

Exactly the reason I posted the way I typed it. Mark may be surprised how much some members know, or their level of formal, post-graduate education.

Focus on the content, not the delivery.

I thought the same thing when I saw Marc's response to PackRat's quote.

It's difficult for the moderators to take the time to sort through a post/question that is not clearly written. Part of their responsibilities is to read through numerous posts and offer advice and answer questions for as many people as possible. They want to help. It's what they are here for. It's best to state your concerns or questions as clearly as you can. Take all the time you need to gather your thoughts and provide as much pertinent information as possible.

Nothing is more frustrating than trying to offer sound advice to someone whose questions are not clearly stated and/or are lacking key information.

There is actually... when a poster has an agenda only to realize it after several attempts of playing it straight, only to realize their interests are not intended for the best interests of the forum.

I’m the first to admit I have no filter at times, it works with some but not with others. I’m not nasty or mean, just a low tolerance of know-it-all’s with little to no experience trying to impose their will on the forum. Mark caught me on the wrong day, after navigating 4 Walmart store deliveries in North Jersey. 3rd day in a row fir that and he played the humble card with me...? Hell no, not going to allow that. I don’t care if he is a PhD... not going to happen. We are all equals here, truck drivers.

Sorry... like I told Anne; “I calls ‘em, likes I sees ‘em”. And for the record, I’m not flying solo on my opinion.

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.
