    What road was this that you couldn't find a more truck friendly route? I don't think your career is over, apply at small companies.

    Every time in life that I have made light of someone else's error, I get a chance to have the same thing happen to me or worse. "Those that have and those that will."

    1.7 million miles without a chargeable accident, thanks only to God, (did have a guy fall asleep and bounce off my drive tires into the medium; thankfully, he was not hurt. If he would have gotten underneath my loaded tanker.....See what I mean....) but I know that one is only as good as the next mile. Stuff happens. When we wake up in the morning, we have know idea what could change our life....

    Be careful how you treat others, it may come back to haunt......

    What is that trite platitude, "It is nice to be important, but more important to be nice."

    KS HWY 9. It wasn't that there weren't better roads, it's just that I was no longer allowed to choose my routes, because apparently driving 100 miles more on a 2100 mile load is "out of route" and my company was ######## at me for consistently low fuel mileage, yet wouldn't actually fix the #### truck. I had even been scheduled to get a new truck since they (finally) determined it to be a lemon, but I was on a months-long waiting list. They told me to send in for directions on every load, and that was the route it took me through.

    Listen Geezer, you might need some more Alzheimer's remedy before opening your mouth! It seems you have suffered too many brain injuries in all of your rollovers.

    I would venture to guess that only 1 in 2500 truckers ever rollover in a 20-year career span--that is a 0.040% chance which, congratulations, this fromer driver has acheived. The likely only way this former driver is getting another job driving in the next ten years is if his father owns the company
    .

    It is EXACTLY the ones like this OP that keeps companies from hiring someone with minimal experience like me.

    You got to excuse Fiddle Diddle. He has no experience yet knows everything about trucking. He refuses to get his feet wet with
    any of the so called bottom feeders yet he wants to give his advice.

    You'll find a job.

    A rollover is NOT a career ender.

    Prime, Inc. From what I gather, they didn't do it to everyone; I assume I pissed someone off high up, which is why I was plagued with office politics my last few months there.
