    Another day of fix it! Picked up one trailer in mechanicsville va . Needed a tire and light, no problem . Going by Chester to top fuel off before hitting DSC . Get it fixed , go 5 miles(max) drop and hook . That trailer has a flat ! Really shops 5 min up the road . Of course is after 6 ! Locked up. Find Tony and he fixes us up. But fixing 2 trailers in 10 miles? Not the shops fault . Just venting but this is getting old, only hand full of drivers doing our job.

    so was it one of the inside tires? Atleast you got Tony and didn't hafta break just to get it replaced in the morning. My main problem I've been seeing ALOT lately is tandems seem to get harder and harder to get loose....especially these 53 or 54 series trailers. Luckily in the past 2 weeks I've seen new tires on the trailers I've been getting. But this year is still fresh!

    Hey, I think you guys can help me....I might have my cellphone bill wrong! OK. I thought we get 10% off of our cellphone with Verizon. How am I only getting 8% off? I think they have me down as EPES Leaseing? That doesn't sound right! Anyone have Verizon, with discount that can tell me the EXACT name I need to be under to save an extra(WHOA! lol) 2%? Just wondering.

    lol so you sure you really aren't doing the l/p and just didn't want us to know? hahahaha.........so feast or famine lately and I got a plate full to start next week.......soon as I dropped the 1st stop today sent dm a message and told him I really wasn't at all interested in sitting 4 days to deliver this one i'm on can we look at dropping it in Greensboro since it only delivers in Lexington? got a message a few minutes later said good to go. 30 minutes later got a double preplan......grand rapids off the yard for Monday 5am and then over to hart, mi going to greenscastle.......that'll make almost 1400 in just under 2 1/2 days.....way to go dm......that's how I like to run and how i'm used to running and still will get 2 full days at home....which also is more than I've gotten in a long while......going to greencastle will suck but the miles won't......sure was glad I was assertive about it early too......sitting here in chester and quite a few guys complaining they're sitting 4 days over the holiday......

    heck yeah for you flying! After the place I was in today...i wanna rip #### apart! lol was Basically in NYC for pick up! Got side swiped by some local guy! Let's see...gotta be in raleigh for drop tomorrow...called DM and it seems the plan is to get most everyone home tomorrow for the holiday! That's cool...but I'm NOT religious.....well the wife is VERY MUCH SO.....oh well. I've had a pretty bad day, after the local driver(was a brick hauler and was hauling an empty) just PLOW into me on the NJ Turnpike.....I was in the middle lane, couldn't get over, trucks coming onto the turnpike...idiot is RIGHT BESIDE ME! so i slowed down alittle bit and then BAM he plowed into me.....knocked my mirror forward, sped up, flipped me off and jumped off of turnpike! I just cared about getting over for emergency lane...couldn't see ####! Called DOT.....they just looked at damage, which isn't that bad....passenger side stairs are alittle bent up...but no ORANGE (that's what the guys truck was)...so I guess I'll see what happens...funny thing is...with ALL the trucks around...NOBODY CALLED IT OUT!

    yeah we're the same way....my wife doesn't miss sunday school, sunday service, Tuesday choir, Wednesday night if it happens at that church she's there until I complain a little and then I get her for a few weekends but she can't stay away......I just can't be bothered with the whole thing......too many hypocrits there for the wrong reasons.....I got turned off to the whole idea of organized religion at a very early age........some of those places up there ARE so close to NYC they might as well be lol I've had more than a few of them......sounds kinda like when I had that 'mishap' with the tree in Georgetown right after I went solo......construction closed down the highway and they detoured into this tiny neighborhood......it wasn't until after I scrubbed the tree that the moron behind me piped up on the radio and asked me if I knew I hit it? well duh moron you couldn't have opened your mouth and told me I was closing on it before I actually rubbed up against it? I #### sure couldn't see it in the mirror..... I can feel your pain on that one......

    Hey Guys,

    so I made it through orientation and I am hired now. Yaaaay, on monday they will give me my truck, I think it will be a 2012 Cascadia. Tony is going to be my DM, he seems to be pretty cool. I also was thinking about maybe doing dedicated with family dollr. I know it is a hard work but I am used to it, I pulled and unloaded dollar general trailers before. Y'all have any input what the drivers make on average?

    thx

    It's harder then dollar general. DG you roll racks into the store ? Family dollar , you set up roller tables and finger print each box. But try it if its not for you , switch out back OTR. Or what else you care for. Have heard take home over a K on FD?

    That's what one of the guys that was in school with me was saying was about 1k +/- a little. He did FD first thing when he got hired on. Made it 4 weeks and switched to OTR side lol it beat him down quick and he was really hating getting in and out of the stores. He's doing local out at p&g now but thinking about going back OTR said that was the other end of the spectrum wasn't making anything doing that lol
