    You already responded to his post, so why this?
    Are you just trying to be antagonistic, even after saying you are going to ignore him?

    If you are really that pretty good of a driver and believe that you still have a chance out here, then simply go apply for jobs in your area.
    Stop talking here and go out and do it.

    Let us know when you have been at the same company for 6 months.

    i don’t know you and you don’t know me. But I’m not sure why you’re taking sides with the real antagonist. Wouldn’t you agree that some things he said were pretty awful?

    I just read @xlsdraw's post that you find objectionable. In light of the information you've given us I don't see where his response to your post was antagonistic. You keep calling him out. He didn't attack you, he didn't belittle you, he didn't insult you. He simply said the same things a lot of other people in this thread have said.
    You need to listen to the advice given here and be a little more appreciative of the people who have taken their time to try to help you.

    Actually, one of my friends agrees with me that you people are in no way, advisable. To tell me that I shouldn’t be given another chance to drive. So anyway I’m just gonna pretend like I didn’t read anything wrong on you guys’ part. I will try and get this thread deleted as I don’t want anymore bad advice. Sorry to disappoint you and disagree with your advice which is not real advise.

    That's cool. I wasn't aware WE had the Upvote/Downvote ability.

    In what way does your avatar or "handle" suggest you as female?
    :rolleyes:

    I didn't say that you shouldn't be given another chance. I indicated that another chance may not be available. You are not less of a person, if that is the case. All that is being said here is that your employment history seems to indicate that driving may not be a good career choice. I emphasize MAY NOT. Please do yourself a favor and have an open mind. Look at all available options, driving and non-driving.

    Seems, from funswirl2000's recent demeaning posts, no added replies as no way for her to "eliminate thread". "couple incidents" is empty without information as to FAULT.
    You were not made aware of the possibly potential requirements??
    Too "busy" recovering from the second carrier?
    So they hired you then "forced you to resign"?
    There is no "just a yard jockey position". There's MORE to "yard jockey positions" than warming a seat, or driving around in circles.
    MANY Of Us at TTR have done or are doing such shuttling maneuvers.
    There is NO "right" or "perfect" company but are a LOT of LEFT companies.
    Some Drivers never survived their last gig, meaning they're no longer on this plane of Existence.
    Some Drivers will never Drive again yet are still with us.
    Some Drivers chose to never Drive again.
    Some People are just not cut from Truck Driver Cloth.

    I am a little confused about some of your employment history. Like unloading carts, did you not know there was unloading involved? Or the yard goat job. Were you hired to be a yard hostler? You can probably find a job but...5 jobs in a month almost says that we are not hearing the full story. Were there accidents involved or incidents. I would not omit any previous employment history as that is basically lying on an application.

    I think you take offense too easily.

    You were given honest opinions from many people, but it seems like you are not looking for honesty here.
