    reminds me if when i was sitting passenger with a fellow 399 teamster leaving river front stages and this dude tried to make a right hand turn with 53 and a stretched 280 wheel base with 3 generators sitting on the chassis. i seen him flick the right blinker and i instantly said " your not going to be able to make that turn" his reply " its ok " goes to make the right from a single lane on to a two lane street and creams the light pole.... the funnny part is that he did all this right in front of the police station and said i just kissed it , and the locations guy says " the teamsters are crazy " lmao drives away from scene lol

    My bid tractor has been at the dealership for over 3 weeks for a DEF issue. Glad I’m not a O/O or I’d probably be bankrupt.

    Does anybody make a “good” truck anymore? When I started in this business, an o/o bought Paccar if he could afford the “good” trucks, bought a Freightliner If he couldn’t, and got Mack or Volvo if he was in the middle. Who makes a truck that doesn’t constantly break now? My company leases Macks and even the dealer is like “don’t worry about that check engine light being on, it’s just a Telematics issue. Keep rolling “.

    That's how we are at work check engine light is on and it's just pretty much ignored at this point, we have a fleet of mostly Volvo's ranging from 2011 to 2019. Needless to say our garage is very busy lol.
