    Last Post from me on this thread..........

    "Senior Driver"??? Wow, I guess I'll talk that with a grain of salt.

    But yeah, been out here since June 1986 and still learning and still meeting interesting, hard working drivers (male and female). Personally, I don't care if the female driver is single, mother of 1,2,3,4, or more kids, grandma, great grandma, great great grandma!! I may not know their whole story to why they choice to get in a big rig to make money. Who knows, maybe this girl or other mom's lives in a small town and had a great job at a factory making products to be shipped to retailers all over the world. Then the factory got shut down and moved to China because of company's like Walmart demanded that their venders make their products cheaper and now there is no other jobs available for this mom except maybe a small trucking company down the road. So now she's in survival mode and takes the steps to get her CDL and trucking job to provide for her family. Maybe it's only temporary till she can afford to move to a bigger town or city where the job market is a lot better for her to get a home job and be home with her kids everyday. Heck who knows. Again, so many variables that some people like you just jump to conclusions instead. I do know that I've been paying plenty of attention what's going on in our current economic situation and there's still plenty of great hard working people out of work. Mom's included! Whatever the situation is for some of these mom's are (divorced, widowed, married with 2-3 mortgages, in debt, whatever), I admire them for working/driving in a very tough industry! Takes a tough women to be out here. So unless you know their true story, i think they deserve plenty of respect just like you would like respect for being a "Senior Driver".

    Maybe she was being nasty at you, cause you come off as nasty to her and/or others.

    Anyway, hope that all makes sense because I just got typing away again and don't feel like going back to read and edit if it doesn't...... Done for sure. Don't care what else you have to say. PM me if you like. Have a great weekend.

    I have read all of the posts here. I have posted in the past on this thread, what my feelings are toward Walmart Distribution centers.

    I laugh at your idea of Professionalism. You still make veiled attacks at people on this forum.

    It is very apparent that any further dealings with you on this thread is a waste of valued time on my part.

    So, have a good day.

    This could go on for a long time. I only admit that you are a lost cause.

    I really wonder what Walmart corporation would think about your posts concerning the truck drivers they need to survive.

    I would not be surprised to find them not happy.

    So, do not think you are right, I just think you are a waste of time.

    I already stated where, exactly, you insulted everybody here with your very broad brush.

    I truly fail to see why I need to be in the industry longer to know you're dead wrong about us all being all those negative things. I'm glad to hear you're just one of us fat, nasty, stinky, ignorant and compleatly lacking in the most basic of driving skills drivers, and not an actual "ambassador" to any Walmart DC.

    So women in trucking has changed the industry for the worse? Lovely.

    So if the road is no place for a mom to be, why is it an okay place for a father to be? Children need their fathers too. That's some seriously sexist BS right there.

    I do not have to be away.

    What did my motherhood or home ownership have to do with this thread? Did you see the quote above it? I'm not exactly an ex-con, to which that particular poster implied we all were, Mr. Senior Driver. As for me "having to be away", I, and my husband, changed roles. He now stays at home with our boys (whom are no longer young, at that), and I am pursuing my dream. But I shouldn't do that, because I'm ruining the industry, and my boys need me at home, right?

    This "poor girl", and her husband, are quite happy with our arrangement. This "poor girl" will have her own truck soon, and take her poor, deprived family out on the road when she can. Even worse, I'm going to have the audacity to teach my husband how to drive truck. Seriously, a woman teaching a man? That's almost as bad as females voting.

    Ugh.

    You have no credible argument so you resort to personal insults. Like children that have no other options they run away, as they are running home to momma they turn and yell something pathetic like "your're a lost cause" or "your're a waste of time" or worse yet "marvelous!". Its classic!

    This happens EVERY time we deliver at Wal-mart DC, anywhere across the country!!! We are very professional and have excellent customer service skills, most receivers thank us for not 'copping an attitude' with them. At Wal-mart DCs we are treated like 2nd class citizens!! As for talking to the associate, if they respond at all it is to 'snap' at you and tell you that they will get to you when theyget to you (had 3 associates spend 45min finishing up paperwork from the previous shift before checking in the 6 drivers standing in line, thus making us all 'late' for checkin by 15min)

    At 50+ I have had years of Customer Service experience, I even worked at a Wal-mart SuperCenter for 4 years. I had customers that would go out of their way to find my register to check out, I often had a line while other registers were empty!! I treated all of my customers as if they were the only one in line, and greeted each with a smile and a hello. YOUR DC employees are the ones that could use a few lessons in Customer Service!!

    And BTW, how are we supposed to know if the DC is run by a third party??

    I would like to see wher you got your data re: two thirds of the industry exhibiting these traits!!!

    NO, you do not show respect to women, or for that case anyone else (in regard to this thread). And you DID attempt to pass judgement on her!!

    The only reason she 'launched off the porch and hurled BS' is simply because of your attitude. Some 'senior' drivers deserve respect, and others, like you, do not!
     
    Female Driver Thanks this.
