    Yea may trucking pissed in cherios. So many better companies to drive for with better lanes more hometime better pay lower turn over dispatchers who acctually know how to do their job. Trucks that are acctually test driven by mechanics no guy sitting at a desk watching your fuel consumption less micro managing APU in trucks I can go on and on with the issues may has I just did not do enough research before I started

    What all NEW drivers need to understand is your not going to get the best right out of the gate. You need to earn it. Seeing his thing saying less then a year driving experience looks like he pissed in his own Cheerios.

    Just so you know, all the hype is about the drop if you lose control and go over the edge.

    Blah, blah, 100 times too slow, one too fast and it's over.....

    Hang in there, it gets better.



     
    blwjr Thanks this.

    Well glad to hear you let pumped to getting out there and turning some wheels down the road. Home time is always a plus though as well.
