    At the end of the day, you get what you pay for. Pay crap wages, get crap employees.

    Just an observation i have made in the past 10-15 years. It seems a vast majority of younger people have no mechanical knowledge. Couldn't operate a screwdriver to save their life. Oh yes, they can work that phone or tablet like a wizard, but if it requires mechanical abilities, they just have a blank stare.
    I know we are in the "disposable" era. If it's broke, throw it away, don't try to fix it.

    Isn’t that the truth......most mechanics now days are the same. If they can’t plug in and be told what to do, the vast majority have no idea.

    Was there oil slung around the inside face of the tires?

    Doesnt surprise me. i used to always say "im an owner/operator" so obviously my truck is tight. Well as i went on in this bussiness, i found that 50 percent of the other owner operators i roll with dont work on their trucks or no squat about them. I was shocked. So its not just company drivers.

    We all know there are companies out there that would fire you for pointing that out. Some drivers don't have balls.
