Michael, you've got to get the big picture in focus. You've been terribly bitter against the trucking industry. You've convinced yourself the industry has treated you badly. That approach will never give you a successful enjoyable trucking career.

I know truckers who have carried that burden around with them for most of their lives. They either hate their job or can barely find a job. It's a really lousy way to go through life. Get over it man. You can be happy and successful driving a truck.

Here's where you can see the big picture. Just look in the mirror. That's the only place you'll find the one who can set you on the right track in this business. You've got to be your own advocate. You will make or break yourself out here. So far you have come close to eliminating yourself from the arena.

The way forward is to be productive, safe and easy to get a long with. That means no more whining and complaining. No more accidents. No more mistakes and no need for excuses. This business rewards results. Get out there and show us something positive. You owe that to yourself and the folks who are throwing you a lifeline. good-luck.gif

Congrats!!

Dutch Maid is a fine company. I've sent a few guys via TT their way. Two of the three are still there! Wish you the best, man. I've actually BEEN to the Weirs' farm in Sarasota, FL..... I went to school there!

Tell Allison and Sam Burrerr that Anne & Brett say hi; and let us know when you head up to Willard, Ohio for orientation. My other half delivers a few times a week, next door on 224, at Pepperidge Farms. Good people, good place!

Kudos, and best wishes!

And, O\S beat me AGAIN!! Sorry!!! Yes, Michael.... Old School IS right, way first!! embarrassed.gif

Wish you well with Dutch Maid, though. Yes, they ARE quite a forgiving company, one of the LAST few left.

Make it work ! Luc did, he's still there after 4 years, happily! Kerry that used to be on here (and has a diary in that section) is going on year TWO with DML !! IF you want it, this may BE your final chance, good sir.

Either way, good luck good-luck.gif good-luck-2.gif good-luck.gif

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.

Dutch Maid is a company near where my company is located. They haul some of our freight (Green Circle Growers).

I talk to their drivers sometimes. It is a decent company. I will not say that every driver there is happy. For one, I haven't spoken to every driver with them Frankly, you may go to the very best trucking company in the US (whichever company you deem that to be) and find drivers who seem to refuse to be happy

Old School gave it to you straight. From reading your posts, you have to come to a realization that this is a very difficult industry in which to start fresh. You would not be the first to be ground up and expelled because the industry can be unforgiving. The fact that you are still here and still trying to make it work speaks to your resolve. Now, channel that into a positive attitude, a sense of appreciation, and a willingness to accept that sometimes crap happens. Do that and you may find yourself on the backside of many years of driving experience. If you don't, Dutch Maid will drop you before Christmas because you prove to be too self-centered to accept coaching when needed. You can do this. I believe that because you are still here. Accept coaching from worthwhile sources. Always be on the alert. Understand that a human error is not an attempt to intentionally do you wrong, just like your human mistakes are not attempts to do others wrong.

Let's celebrate that new job by envisioning making it through the New Year and beyond.

Well put Ryan.

Yes indeed, well put, Ryan. Until the likes of me; familiar with Decker..right up the street. (Yes?)

Sorry! Great place, tho! They USED to haul dedicated for MTD. Not sure if that's the case, yet you are under NO pressure to confirm or deny. Most Ohio companies don't get past me, haha!

ps: They also 'used' to be under the wings of P.A.M. ... not sure if there IS any affiliation, anymore...OKAY, i'll shut up, now!
