    Had 2 steady relationships while on the road in two different states and banged a chick in Mexico across the border:biggrin_2559: So likely on top of the $4700.00 you have to repay on the training there will likely be a child support judgement coming along soon as well.

    If so PLEASE DO NOT POST pictures of that INCIDENT .

    :mconfused: Have any of y'all ever had so much to say
    that y'all don't know where to begin?
    And, on top of that,, an underlying fear
    that if y'all do get started, y'all won't
    be able to put a period at the end? :mfrown:

    Uhhhh... #### dude... You made like 30 posts each with a sentence... Did you not report the damage you did to that truck? Typically I would say if you have a accident within the first couple months they would probably let you go... If you get another chance to drive be more careful! I am a newbie starting out too. I would take it slower...

    in response, after accepting a new loaner (older model century) because the first truck issued was downed (a repaired cascadia before i received under 300,000miles), and when i was asked was there anything else they didn't know about, I replied "yeah, i struck the sleeper panel with the trailer while u-turning in a very tight spot" in which the claims coordinator replied "oh, so jacknife", and i left the argument at that. I told them i reported everything i noticed wrong with the truck on either my pre-trip inspection report, the shop write-up form or verbally to road rescue. he said "no you didn't report it", I repeated myself and then he brought up pg. 25 of the Driver's manual for the defintion of an accident and said "it's anything that cost money" and that all of those reports needed to be directly reported to casualty claims/accident hotline. Fine, still a newbie and can owe the entire $6000 if I learn nothing from my first verbal warning. The bottom line is that I was not really given a second chance to learn from my mistakes as far as company protocol was concerned.

    I'm going to try to say this without being, in any way, insulting. First, could we please use proper capitalization and punctuation so that I can actually comprehend what you're trying to say in its entirety? Second, a slight jackknife? Side swipes? What the hell? It's amazing I've gone years without even backing into another trailer at a truck stop, but you think it should be no big that you tear your truck to hell. I just don't get it. If you can't spot areas where you can safely make a maneuver that's a failure in your ability to handle the vehicle. It's not PAM's fault. The pictures don't help your cause. Especially the one with you flipping off the truck. Maturity goes a long way in this field. Just my two cents worth.
