Get a bit.ly URL that leads to a rick roll video and print it with "I think I hit your truck, contact me at bit ly url"

This is a joke and I in no way actually endorse this unless maybe it's your buddy's truck and y'all joke around busting each other's balls

To BK's point about flyers, remember the "kick me" papers taped to kid's backs in school?

I want to get a bunch of stickers that say "Hit me!" I'll stick them on the trailers of drivers that park at truck stop and rest area entrances, leaving you barely enough room to get in or out.

Nothing prevents you from asking another driver. If they have any damage from previous incidents they may try to put the blame on you hitting them and claim against your insurance or hear "ill be a nice guy, if pay me $500 we'll call it even". I would highly suggest you not ask if you hit especially when you know you didn't. If you're that insecure in your backing find an empty lot during the day and practice.

Keep an eye on your mirrors, get out and look, pull up to get a better view if you need to. Trust me, if you hit their rig they'll tell you. Leaving the scene becomes a big deal when you KNOWINGLY hit something and choose to leave.

I am in the doghouse myself because I thought I was reading greenhorn posts asking greenhorn questions

If you were in the doghouse, you'd know. You're not in the doghouse.

The issue coming up with you is that you insist you're right, even when you're not. It's condescending. You even went as far as to tell me the purpose of this forum.

I came to this forum 4 or 5 years ago with zero information on where to start and with the guidance I received from Brett, GTown (who I spent a day with) and countless others that no longer post, I was able to forge a successful, profitable career and it was because of the time I invested and the time others invested in educating me and guiding me. I got a good laugh out of you telling me the purpose of the site.

Also, don't respond to this. I had fun with the back and forth earlier but I don't want to hijack another thread and I'm going to follow Turtle's lead on this.

Yeah Ryan. Posting here on TT can get a little bit of an adventure. The only posts I have total confidence with for information/humor are the ones PackRat posts.

For the record, I knew you were joking.

There are jokes, but the information aspect of it is taken very seriously. That's why your logs were scrutinized. It wasn't to give you a hard time it was to let you know you're setting yourself up for a bad day. You only have to get caught once.

Bruce the issue is not humor, it’s your propensity to attempt entertaining the forum with your endless supply of jokes. Granted some are funny, others are silly, misplaced and often misunderstood. And… then you get defensive and snarky when someone like Steve calls you out on it?

Humor is fine.., but if that’s all yah got, pick your spots and exercise care when dealing with a brand new member, totally inexperienced wanting truthful information.

G Town. Point taken . It’s like me pointing out that you are too serious.

GTown, not all people are the same. You are admittedly more serious than me. I appreciate that and have greatly benefited from your professional knowledge. But I’m going to be 70 years old on October 4th. You can ban me from the forum, but you can’t change that. Haha!

Sorry for the humor.

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.
