    Then all at once the chaos ceased.
    A stillness fell, a sudden peace.
    The warriors felt my silent cry,
    And stayed their struggle, mystified.
    -----Neal Peart

    I work for no man
    I have no name
    You seek a great fortune
    You three who would lie in chains
    You will find a fortune
    But it will not be the fortune you seek
    But first, first you must travel
    A long and difficult road
    A road fraught with peril, um huh

    This has been my "getting a trucker job" journey. I lament the fact that I cannot share the specific details of my journey thus far, but it is sad, and comical, and absurd. It might have a happy ending. Maybe in a few months, I will tell you all about the cow on a cotton house. Yasser! LOL!

    I think you won't be the only poor soul talking about a journey, lots of us on the same boat.

    We don't have problems. We only have opportunities to excel. - Gunnery Sergeant Ron Penn

    Sounds like you're missing out on a lot of opportunity.

    @Chinatown knows what I'm talking about. I built a fragile edifice to get what I thought I wanted, but now I have the opportunity to get what I really wanted.

    Crap! Now I have to choose between a love affair with a company recruiter based on lies and a love affair with a recruiter that a friend of mine set me up with that will pay me more than the bogus OTR love affair, and gets me home every single weekend.

    I talked to my friend at length today, and he's got me very interested in the Renminbi Sapling dedicated account. Heavily leaning that way now.

    Is that too much speaking in code? I've sabotaged myself so many times that I'm loath to mention even a company name because they lurk here.
     
    G13Tomcat, audeygdad and Chinatown Thank this.

    Well. Me and the merry men all m a ke about $100K a year doing van.

    Oh, we own, or will own our trucks too. So there's that.

    No one is on our ###. So there's that.

    Here's the one thing I guarantee everyone -

    You will get it fully shoved up your ### on occasion through no fault of your own.

    How do you like my recruiting promise? Cause it's the only thing I unconditionally guarantee.

    That ain't sheet. A USN recruiter told me, a promising young high school student, that I could be a Navy fighter pilot AND a Navy nuclear submarine officer at the same time. I was enlisting....o_O

    I don't believe my girlfriend recruiters. I do believe the guy who lives down the street from me. He's a good guy.
