I thought Bruce's comment was funny as it gave me a chuckle. His comments usually do. It must be our decade that gets us coming up with silly comments/jokes. Sorry about the Chinese Virus your family has. Hope they get better soon.

BTW, Bruce, Happy Belated Birthday! Welcome to my decade!

George, no issue. I tend to see the humor in situations because it helps to keep me going. I appreciate your comments.

I have had a couple of bad experiences in the quest to get my CDL and was wondering if anyone could offer advice. I was supposed to begin training with one company and at the last minute they said that I had a moving violation from 2018 that was set to drop off in a month and then I could reapply. I waited a month and reapplied and they then told me that they would not be able to move forward at this time. So, I applied at another company. I was set to leave for training on Saturday October 8 and begin training on the 10th. They sent me my bus ticket along with several emails welcoming me to the {company name} family. I spoke with a woman from the company yesterday to go over what to expect from training and I was ready to go. This morning, I received a call saying that they were no longer going to be able to offer me a position in training because of the moving violation from 2018. I asked him why, when we had spoken at the beginning of this whole process, and he knew at that time of my driving record, he had said that since it was more than 3 years ago, it wouldn't be a problem, but all of a sudden, it is now a problem. All he said was "That's what they told me". This is leaving a really bad taste in my mouth, and I am wary to apply elsewhere because I really don't want to get my hopes up again, only to have them totally dashed right and I am getting ready to start training. Does anyone have a similar experience and/or advice on why this keeps happening?

HEY, O/P !!

So, what's up ?!?!? Did you learn anything? Have you been 'rehomed?' Hired anywhere/elsewhere?

Again, many great replies above, albeit much humor & much ado, about you . . . the only one missing!!

Care to update us? Just saying, your last sentence was a question; you got answers. Did you heed them? Care to share (more) so we/they can help accordingly? Notice, you sure DID get answers, above!

Heck; maybe you're no longer in need of the assistance of this great group of folks; perhaps you can share your secrets HERE, then...how to overcome whatever you DID overcome! It's all about sharing, caring, and helping others here...

Best to you, man. Stop back; it'd be nice!
