    It could have been worse. If he were working for Marten, Randy Marten would have mailed him a handwritten note whining about how much the towing bill cost. That guy is legendary for having the last word!

    While I can agree with you, there is always the other side of things that should be considered as well. They more than likely get more than their fair share of BS stories all the time, how are they to ever decipher between fact and fiction? It would take a full time staff I'm sure for any of the mega's to sort thru these types of things and decide what is real and what isn't, and then try to do the compassionate thing and get the guy home.
     
    Lonesome, TruckDuo and Drac1985 Thank this.

    Always remember that OTR companies could care less about you. Heartland always advertises for drivers. I guess they can't keep the ones they have. I'm sure there is a good reason for it. The best to you and your mom.

    Let him show up here and see if he has the last word. Somehow I doubt it.

    My prayers go out to the OP here. It sounds like you did right by Heartland to the extent you could, despite the initial mistake of going there to begin with.

    Like someone else here said, the smaller the company you drive for, the better the atmosphere will be.
     
    Grouch, 48Packard and kid_cardiac Thank this.

    True that. But he was 50 miles from home and the truck broke down. I agree with you and the BS stories that most have to sift through. But there is those 2 other circumstances

    I wonder if heartofatrucker will chime in here and give us a few statistics about happy heartland drivers and their new trailers... perhaps a few pie charts to go along....

    hoat never responds to drivers first hand mistreatment by their company....

    he cant handle the truth.

    I've never been one to spread BS all over a forum like others with a gripe do. The bare minimum they could have done for me, to show just a bit of compassion, was either a hotel room for the night, or the bus ticket home. But it was their decision not to help me, since I had told them I was quitting. I didn't want to leave as quick as I did, but I really had no choice.

    And to those sending well wishes to my mother, thank you. It really means a lot to me. She is doing better, but not out of the woods yet. But I know she'll beat this.

    I would rather work at McDonalds than work at Heartless Express. I mean it.
