    Just back from getting my new glasses. WOW the smilies have pretty colors on them! lolol didn't realize just how bad my vision was til now! I can hear the kids now though saying "mama you look like a geek!"

    Your right Chrome but when you don't have the money to invest you don't have it. Nothing I can do to get it either. And no credit to buy it on this has been a really bad year for us and it is gonna take awhile to dig out of this hole we are in!

    I understand.
    I just wanted to get the thought out there. I hope he gets a good DM when he goes back full OTR, or gets in Wally world early. I know normally there company policy is 3 years exp.

    My husband just got off the phone with a recruiter, was told their drivers are averaging 2800 miles a week right now. They also said they were coming up on their busy season. From what I have read here lately it doesn't sound like anyone is getting anywhere close to those miles true or false?

    I went to Central's Truck Driving Academy yesterday, and the guy there told me that they are on a hiring hold until October 12th because of the new shipment of trucks rolling in. Does anyone know anything about that? I was ready to go in and get this new lifestyle underway...but I am delayed yet again.

    Yes some are getting good miles!! Some are getting crappy miles.

    Thats only 3 weeks and they probably have all classes filled for the next 3 weeks!

    I think with economy being down the drain they aren't having the normal driver turnover and drivers are figuring a lil money is better then none!

    Thank you so much for that visual. Was in need of a giggle. :biggrin_25520:

    Don't know whether its my cell phone or the areas I'm running in, but have been having problems with dropped calls. Am about ready to tell AT&T to take a hike.

    2 drops tomorrow then will be finished with this trip. Wonder what kind of preplan I'll be getting or if I'll even get one.
     
    LADYANDTHETRAMP Thanks this.

    I have the impression most people are not getting that milage.

    One thing to remember is recruiters are salesmen, trying to get you to buy a product. they're going to tell you whatever it takes to get you to go to school.
