Im wondering why a thread is sill at 6-27-08 at 3:2
why did you husband stop going to scheider schoool and did he think that being hired there would be bad
Best of luck on not being laid off, and let's all hope that this merger works out.
Having been in LTL for many many years I understand what a crunch the LTL industry is going thru. The Yellow/Roadway thing takes my breath away everytime I think about it. What do you think is going to happen? Safe to assume you're a linehaul driver? Are you still working? Yellow's terminal is Columbus is incredible to look at, just about empty. Don't know what the Roadway terminal looks like. My husband retired long ago, but I stayed in the business until I got such a good offer from a TL carrier that I had to take it. My last LTL carrier was APA Transport, I loved that company. Good luck.
heck they hate it when i telll that's ok sweety. i need my 10 hr break, oops right here wil do fine. pull the brakes shut the curtains. i get a knock on door, you can't park here, sorry out of hours trk stop too far away.
or use the good ole girly charms sweet talk with southern accent hehehehe
i rememebr a time when i thought i was gonna get home only to be sent west. boy was my kids poed. it was set up hometime a month ahead. because of a court date. lost temp custody.
so be thankful what you have never know when you might not have it anymore.
LOL, welcome to the world of LTL! Happens all the time. Your calm attitude would have disarmed her! Good for you!
I find taking out my book and reading gets them to realize I dont really care about the outcome, and they usually come and give me a door quickly. If they dont I get to read a bunch out of my good book!
That was funny. thx
it was taken by a professor at Miami university in Oxford Ohio...
he lives down the street - McConnar is his name.
pic was taken last year I believe....
WOW....that is a nice picture of Cincy @ night !!!
I di the trash thing for 11yrs it wasn't easy, but I loved it anywhoo. I'm now working on my class a, with a Hazmat co. and loving it too. The trucking industry is my life and I'm
grateful that God gave me that.
I still like to be on the road but that sound like a good thing.
And I don't know if my wife would like to share her bed that often.
working my third week with a trainer on the road. Our company works the northeast pretty hard. We are hoping for something else next week. JG
Well said. Happy 4th. Have a safe trip.
Now that is a great post. This is what one might expect. I have had a rough couple of days on the road. They have been during my first two weeks of driver OTR training. Have a real good trainer. My question is a bout the dispatcher. It is 8 pm and by all rights I have been sitting in East PA near Philly since 11am. Unloaded at 1230 and a new trip out of Reading. But the Reding trip was already gone. Double booked, whatever that means. Then a new trip to Baltimore, hurry get to MD and they will send the details... so on the road. Routing comes in and we are going to IN, but wait, there is a glitch. Cancelled. Thank God for WallyWorld. Of course this is after a missed trip to Cleveland leaving Newark last week. (That trip won't get you back in and does not make sense.) Let's get a new trip. Did get home on saturday AM. Is this normal?
Just to help you dream a little:
I took that picture last Thursday in Toronto at a train yard where we have an office.
But I don't think you could get one, they were supposed to build less than 7000 of them in 08 and they are all sold.
And they are on the way.
I took this next pic on Friday morning between Toronto and Detroit:
And look at that nice R/T model coming as an 09 model:
Looking forward to the photos. I grew up "small town" too. The big men on my High School campus were FFA members. I still remember the expensive but REALLY nice jackets. (They *do* know how to throw a bar-b-q)
Have a good one and SAVE me some BEER!!!
You're right, it's not because you're a long haul driver that you can't have a life.
During the 1st 2 years at the company I'm at, I only missed 2 week-ends at home. One was a break-down, the other was because I was too late for a meat inspection at the border.
Now, I accepted to do some West Coast runs but my dispatch knows that he has to ask my wife 1st.
Anyway, I spent (almost) as much time at home as I (or my wife) want.
If you need remodeling advice, let me know. My trade for 26 years was (is) tile, marble and glass block installations. Remodeling bathrooms was a big part of my workload until the new housing boom started 5-6 years ago. There are some good forums online as well.
