That's great! Communication works 2 ways and sometimes you have to sleep before taking action. I'm glad you hit the brakes and decided to take the approach you did. Hopefully, others can learn from your example. Great job.

The Lord does all things good! Happy!


Man, serious derailment there for a bit. How goes it Two Sides? Hopefully better news.


Lol yea it did. Spoke with Payroll earlier and found out when the pay period ends. They said I have to talk to my TM to get the per diem removed from my pay. They also said my CPM is between 42-47. My DM said he would put the breakdown pay from 2 weeks ago in this check, that he forgot to put the tarp pay in and the stop pay wasn't actually another stop to be classified as stop pay.....

Also received a phone call from safety today regarding my email I sent about my training. They asked for my opinion and what needs to get better. They then said they would contact my TM. They did because 30min later he called and said he would get me a driver to follow for a week like I was promised........


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.


Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.

Per Diem:

Getting paid per diem means getting a portion of your salary paid to you without taxes taken out. It's technically classified as a meal and expense reimbursement.

Truck drivers and others who travel for a living get large tax deductions for meal expenses. The Government set up per diem pay as a way to reimburse some of the taxes you pay with each paycheck instead of making you wait until tax filing season.

Getting per diem pay means a driver will get a larger paycheck each week but a smaller tax return at tax time.

We have a ton of information on our wiki page on per diem pay

Gtown is it fine now if I am not moderated?

Victor... can we move on here? The obsessive apologies and wordy explanations aren’t necessary.

Look forward and adjust accordingly. This is it. You want to free from moderation than conduct your business on here professionally and rationally.
