    Why are WE drivers always on the side of the road? Do they cancel trips often before you get there or something?

    That's a cheap shot. And you know it.

    Ive got about 30 years roughly as a company stoogie myself more or less.

    Man has several valid thoughts poor dress code, open drug use in a semi and so on.

    I would have to keep my responses very short and careful.

    If you see someone doing drugs in a 18 wheeler cab and do nothing, then you are guilty by association. Let the law take care of that. Our SIU team in White County has made a total of about 110 busts for close to 200 felony drug charges and a variety other related charges since just last march. Not just that but the strike team even caught a child explotation (Plural) for creating child dirty pictures in a nearby hotel red handed on a tip. Boom Caught. That one is going away for a very long time.

    And it's not just our county, we can have within less than a hour about 8 counties show up with everything that they possess to do all that it needs doing to get the bad guys.

    Needless to say I love the way the law handles the lawbreakers. They are not welcome here. At the same time they are not butchers and show common sense when regular citizens break down or have really basic problems that can use a helping hand.

    I would cry too if I was flatbedding at WE for 35cpm. I would probably commit suicide for how far my life had already fallen apart. Just saying, they're probably right driving those ####ty ### tricks I see, I'm surprised half the company didn't get #### down during blitz.

    To be fair- couple months ago...I was in Line waiting to pick up and a Western Express truck pulled up behind me, Guy came out,walked up to me to ask if this was the line,etc etc.

    Heck of a nice guy-probably in his late 50's early 60's........We started talking shop and he actually had a decent personality- ex Farmer from Iowa that got into trucking- Says he's treated well at Western Express.

    So don't judge people or carriers by what you read or hear- Give everyone a fair chance.
