    Well confound it! Guess you should march yourself right on over to your closest Crete terminal and share the good news with all the drivers that are doing their jobs with pride while supporting their families! I'm such an idiot - I've been duped!!!!!

    Helping other prospective drivers is the intention of the thread, if you happened to overlook that in my original post. THis is not about complaining about complainers or trying to stir the pot. TTR is known for it's fair share of drama - that's a fact. I'm not posting on this forum to complain to the complainers, I'm hoping to help somebody who might have had a dream of becoming a trucker, only to be slammed with all the BS and then start to second guess their dream. TTR gets a lot of traffic, and a lot of folks researching about trucking. I'm hoping to help those folks by speaking out - I don't expect to change the embittered, or anybody for that matter, let alone advocate complaining for any cause or reason.

    Thanks for helping me clarify.

    Thanks for the encouraging words :biggrin_25519: It's a shame how being positive nowadays is mistaken for being naive.

    Please report back in 3..no make that 6 months.
    Im sure there are rape victims walking around
    that had good attitudes.
    Attitude is part of being a good driver,but only part.
    Being a polite mouse will make you a target for some
    fine company.Just my bad attitude 2 cents.
    You may wanna try getting into recruiting?:biggrin_255: cvbkjlkio.jpg

    Funny that bill w knows soooo much.... And is still a student? I agree the quality of drivers is going down hill... But he needs to get a few years under his belt before making an more accurate assessment of whether the whole industry is out to scam drivers.
