    THAT school is not a bust, you gots your CDL right?

    Your REAL schooling starts when Mr Potbelly Dispatcher hands you a load packet and blesses your fuel card with money to go to Atlanta tonight.

    You got this, Slim. It’s just the timing that sucks. I have no doubt you’ll be successful in this industry. Patience and perseverance. That’s all. God bless you.

    Sure. And a workaround when the OTR stuff piles up too many tickets or accidents. When you understand some dump truck owners cannot be bothered with DAC, you have a job. I can go to Maryland today with a class B and show up at 6 am at the farm and that truck will be warming up for work soon enough.

    Well... sometimes a crooked company does not do anything until you do show up at orientation.

    It is a risk you have to take. Afterall, if you did make it you wont be home a while.
