    Most likely also dropping the mileage pay to .29 a mile as well on the first.

    I worked for Knight Refrigerated out of Idaho Falls then transfered to Memphis. I went to Portland maybe once, But I didn't live over there and they save those loads for the drivers who do.

    Please tell me you are being sarcastic! There is no way I could afford ANOTHER pay cut!
    Has anyone else heard that are slowing our trucks down again to 60 cruise/62 pedal???

    Heard? It happened to me due to slipseating! If you have a higher idle time, you go slower with the new software. I got into a truck with a 45% idle time, had the update, then got passed by Swift.

    I was told that this new reduction in truck speed has nothing to do with "driver reward" software. This was the new maximun speed setting for the truck, regardless of idle time!
    I wonder how many more drivers AND customers are going to tell the Knight family to kiss it where the good Lord split it!

    That happens and I'll call in the truck is unsafe to drive and needs to be towed to a shop.

    I overheard this one in Tulare. The Mormons have special rooms under the temple in SLC in which they teach Jews how to be so cheap.

    :biggrin_25524:

    Kinda pisses me off that working for Mormon companies is starting to make me into a #### #####.

    But still, that's funny. :yes2557:

    the night before halloween, i delivered to a customer 1 mile away of THEE mormon temple. it was within the hilly neighborhood off of I street and 5th street. you'd better be on your A-game when going there. if you aren't careful, you're going to hit a car, and the aftermath will NOT be pretty. feel free to check it out on google or mapquest. the address is: 402 6th Ave; salt lake city, ut. can you see where the dock is located? :biggrin_2559:
