    I agree, everyone park those Trucks ASAP.. Rates still need a bump up. I need the money. I’ll cover as much Freight as I can. Don’t worry, go home be safe. Got it covered.

    You think they are crazy now? Wait till the trucks stop running and the scarce shelves are bare.... then you will see crazy.
    I’m going to work. The company says it has more freight than drivers. They are letting me keep the truck at the house. I can self isolate for a 5 day run. We should be grateful, we have one if the few jobs left right now.

    I can’t go home.

    1. There’s no revenue stream at home. Well unless your hung like a horse and have a lady with a tight bod and flexibility and she doesn’t mind being nekked on the web.
    2. Been out here for weeks. Everyone at home is safe. I know that as soon as I go home, everyone at home will get sick.
    3. Everything getting shut down is going to hurt worse than any virus ever could.
    4. Somebody has to go to work.

    So, I can’t go home.

    I'll shut down pretty quickly for snow/ice, high winds and such, but not because of being scared of a virus.

    I think the people that should really be concerned are the ones that try to sanitize everything all the time because they are always so afraid of germs.
    They're the ones with the weak immune systems because of their poor hygiene habits.

    You can't stick it out once the going gets a little rough and your job is actually in demand and needed, I suggest finding a different line of work.
