    Do not tell anyone your beliefs.

    Do not argue over anything you saw on the news.

    Dont ask. Don't tell.

    Do not be surprised if you find out that your 'trainer' is an idiot. Do not let him know that you know until you get your own truck.

    Do not try to win popularity contests.

    Do not give idiots what they crave most.

    Stupid people leave home looking for ways to die. Do not cut your wheels or put yourself in harm trying to avoid them. Do not rubberneck when they are successful.

    The eye candy in the office is off limits. Keep your comments to yourself.

    "Do not be surprised if you find out that your 'trainer' is an idiot. Do not let him know that you know until you get your own truck."

    Just finished "training" My "trainer" was 23. He has been driving a whopping 14 months. He spent most of the time talking about how he was going to get rich starting his own trucking company. The remainder criticizing my driving.
    I put up with it although I have a clean record and was driving before he was born. It sucked.

    How else can a driver end up needing to grease his hips to get through the doors . . .in the back of the trailer . . ?

    Same with me. My wife wears flip flops but I go bare footed and never had a problem. The spray bleach is a good idea though.

    Guess I should have been dead years ago....

    I don't carry a Spray Bottle with Bleach and I don't wear flip flops in the shower.
