    I heard they’re having issues getting trucks to pull the loaded trailers. I know at the Indy warehouse I was at last week, there was at least a dozen of our trailers there loaded, and they had me bobtail out to go get a Boars Head load.

    You were at a place with 12 loaded trailers ready to go and they sent you somewhere else to get another?

    Did somebody in Richmond fall out of his chair and land on his head? o_O

    The Boars Head loads are essentially expediter loads, and they pay like it, and they're steady

    If there's one sitting in Wytheville, it doesn't usually have much time left on it relative to how far it's got to go, but everybody knows JohnBoy will get it there

    I was asked to do a favor, apparently they sent new drivers out there that wound up being late the last 3 weeks. Makes no sense to me, but I get paid to drive this thing, they get paid to plan trucks and loads.

    Interesting day today. Stop to get fuel at Love's in Santa Rosa NM this morning and as Im getting on the ramp to get back onto 40 east a JCT truck is coming the opposite direction to make a left turn onto the interstate. I figured she would stop to wait until traffic cleared but nope, she stomped on it and cut off two cars that were going straight and they almost ended up under her trailer and she almost took my hood off on the ramp. I laid on the air horn and called her a dumb knucklehead on the CB to which she promptly said to shut up and go F.myself, lol! Aggressiveness and impatience is getting worse out here I think.
     
    TokyoJoe, 48Packard, dwells40 and 3 others Thank this.

    Typical driver of today. But in her defense, maybe she was having a case of the squirts and was stinking up the inside of her truck, and needed to change her panties.
