    I agree.

    I am not picking on the OP but there are times Mr Gravity likes to grab ahold and play with a big tonka toy with stupid humans inside.

    Angry Trainer game would be most interesting. Ive pushed a couple over the edge a few times.

    *DO THIS TRAINEE!!! Me: you and what army?

    and we will go from there. Whoever is in that left set is the bossman at that.

    I have taken steering wheels before as trainer. Only just enough to get her back before we all went over. Trainee then follows instructions until the situation passed. But I probably remember two or three times in life i ever did that and a trainer once ever and that was on ice.

    If you don't have the intestinal fortitude to stand up for yourself in your own #### truck how are you gonna stand up for yourself when your on your own against companies, owners, shippers or anyone else that tells you to do something illegal or questionable. You're suppose to be a professional driver, when you're behind the wheel, I don't care if God himself sat in the passenger seat and told you to drive off the bridge....you're responsible!

    If you...I mean you're friend...can't handle himself in a truck with a trainer...get a different job, this one isn't for you.

    Methinks there is a lot more to the story here. Without ALL the details, it's hard to give advice.

    And when your friend made that hard right turn he saw exactly what in his mirror?
    Or did your friend just look straight ahead pretending there was no trailer behind him?
    Did your friend or the trainer decide that it was probably a good idea to continue on after the truck and trailer started to lean excessively to the right?

    It’s like the old Transformers saying here: More than meets the eye.

    First off did you or “your friend” even bother to use that big shiny thing on the side of the truck called a mirror? Why didn’t you or your “friend” check for another route?

    When you roll an truck, especially as a student, most if not all companies look at that and say you can’t be trusted.

    Hopefully you or your “friend” can find a company to work with.

    Everything I wrote was true it is a friend, I have been driving 33 years, no need for the sarcasm. I was asking what he can do moving forward cleary you were rehashing what he did wrong.

    Another truck driving detective, use his mirror? He rolled the truck, can you get past that... my question was what can he do moving forward. He wants to work! Why is that so hard to understand!
