    Thats why im not excited anymore. I learned the hard way...well not really. But learning for free isnt really a loss.....people dont pay you for what you dont know. I was smart enough not register business number and tax number till they thought I was ready....then when they let me go on my own I bent them over backwards sort of. That was their plan for me, dont know how you can be a self employed if they own the truck pay fuel tell me when and where to work. I invoice them, charge them harmonized sales, pay pension, my own workers compensation, pay canada revenue agency, pay provicial and federal taxes, pay back government harmonizeed sales tax they paid me, run around the bank with a buisness license, transfer money from one account to another or pay a bookeeper. And be on call day and night. Drop everything and run to work when they call me......did they really think I a new driver is that dumb?

    Thats why im not excited anymore

    You stand off to the side, stay clear of the door and the path of the handle. No worries
