    Bullet-

    Just my opinion, but if I were you I would let Central know, and I would do it in person. Be humble, clam, but do it. I would also give trucking another chance, this time with a good trainer, and some miles of your own - solo. You still have the possibility to return to Central if you go in person and talk to them.

    I for one would be pissed off if I were going to Central and found out that the trainer I was assigned was the trainer that did all those things to you. Also, when he called me a ******** noob - It would have all been solved right there and then just for the verbal abuse - hopefully between us in a peaceful verbal manor.

    Thank you for the post, as it has armed with additional knowledge - you have help me and I am sure many others.

    He requested JJ and they told him no!!

    There is a pecking order with trainers at Central!!

    A good friend and JJ's old trainer Paul isn't training right now because he didn't get to WVC for the trainers recertification after asking for a load to WVC countless times and when he finally did get back to WVC they told him that he would have to wait......This is a guy who has been training for a few years and has an excellent training record but he isn't in with the training department at WVC!

    I'm sure the bill is on the way. It's not that I don't have the money because I do. Should I pay it? Good question. I am a standup, shoot straight person and I probably will pay the bill so as not to go through the whole credit rating ####. I have a credit rating over 700 so I don't want to mess it up.
    To all, the more I think about it the more I am inclined to go down to Central and say something. I won't be rude but I am starting to lean towards saying something about my trainer. Little side note here. When I first met my trainer, he told me that he is 0-3 on his last 3 students that he trained. "They all left for emergencies" is what I was told. The more I have had the time to think about it..... hmmmm.
    Jess, the trainer paid for the scale ticket. Like I said in the other post, why the hell did we have to move the tandems in the first place.
    JJ, I wish I had gone out with you too. I tried like hell but in the end they said "no". Even when they shuffled me between trainers I had asked to go with you.
    Anyways, enough of the bad.
    Newtruckerwidow, I hope everything works out for you and 1bad.
    JJ, keep the mistress rolling.
    Snowwy, thanks for the info on the other trucking company.
    B-rad, I don't have a bad impression of trucking. I drove a truck about 10-12 years ago for quite a while and i've met alot of great people on this board.

    I hated Commiefornia. Talk about traffic. I thought it was bad in Salt Lake. I had a stop in East LA and we had trouble finding it. Good luck JJ.

    I just looked at mapquest and it was Vernon,Calif. that I was in. I hope you don't have that stop there JJ. The parking lot that they are in is not much of a parking lot at all and they are kind of hidden behind another business.

    Congrats on your card. I thought you would get a kick out of Commiefornia. Oregon was no treat either(besides the ticket). Construction everywhere. Of course Utah is no better. There is a mess of construction by the mountains that makes it challenging just getting up Parleys and through the mountains.

    Oh no! That's where we're going for our mountain driving tomorrow!!! ####. And after the great day I had today, I was hoping for another great one tomorrow. Oh well, guess I'll just wait to drive second tomorrow so I don't have to be the one to drive through it. After all, I drove through about five miles of it today in down town Salt Lake, it's someone else's turn tomorrow. :biggrin_2553:

    Downtown is kinda torn up. Some of those turns are really tight and add in some of the great driving abilities of the locals and it gets real fun.
