    My video shows him talking to the 911 operator not covenant dispatch. I really do not want to get in trouble or fired for posting the video though. I know for a fact that covenant monitors this website, so I would rather not at this moment. Video he states his name,my name, truck #, trailer #, etc... too much sensitive information. Maybe I can video edit to where I blur out his face, and cut out the name info,truck info,etc... but for now no can do.

    co driver#2

    I'm back on the road, this time without that a-hole. I have a new co driver and we get along great. Its been about a week. We have been real busy with good loads. This week expecting about 6000miles. Picked up a load going from georgia to california! Great miles hard work.

    I'm glad you got it sorted out OP. I have to say that I'm not looking forward to riding along with someone for 4-5 weeks for initial training once I get to a company. I've read lots of horror stories similar to yours. That guy you dealt with sounds like a real piece of work.
     
    rpad139 Thanks this.

    Yeah, my first co driver was horrid as well.. she liked to crash Toll booths, gate bars at shippers, she eventually got fired due to all these mishaps and they were all small, but they add up.

    I should have gotten off the truck when i first met her... i was new and not to sure of my rights.. I found out later she had rolled a truck 7 years prior.... anyways that was years ago. i now do solo only.

    Not sure why you're worried if they have to pee or stretch. "Hey man I gotta pee can you stop at the next rest area real quick?" "Yeah man no problem there's one coming up in 15 miles." Yeah that's so stressful:biggrin_25513:

    It is if you got someone with a weak bladder who cant hold it for a couple hundred miles.
