    When you use mandate and individual choice in the same sentence it confuses me. You can't have both at the same time.

    You always have a choice. Bow to the mandate master or fight them.

    That is EXACTLY my belief with this whole vaccine charade. My uncle-in-law was vaxxed and wore a mask, and still got and died from Covid and it's complications. I will let God and nature and my immune system do the fighting, and if it's my time, then it's my time.

    When Crete gave me a CPAP in 2015 they also gave me a yearly physical and I’ve been having to do that nonsense every year since. It wasn’t until my last physical this year in Texas that the doc looked at me curiously and asked why I had to do a yearly. I explained about the forced Crete CPAP and how I’d never been drowsy before Crete’s “sleep test”. He got very pissed and said that, outside of diabetes, high blood pressure or heart disease, there was no need for a yearly and he put me back on a two year physical. God bless Texas.

    All trucking companies have their own faults and requirements...some cpap test ...others it's uniforms , years of experience , etc. ....if I don't agree..go to another company

    Change of plans. My A/M was out yesterday, but nobody said a word. Once my wife got word that her Covid and MRSA tests both came back negative, so unless something catastrophic happens to her, the surgery is on...so, I messaged him to confirm that things were still a go on me being home Tuesday and with my wife a minimum of 7 days...I get a message back from someone else saying "we currently don't have loads out of NC taking you home, when can you be in Marietta because we can get loads to your area out of GA"...I said 9 in the morning...so he set up a t-call in Marietta for 8. So, I leave an hour earlier than planned enroute to Marietta. In the twilight of the morning, somewhere between Opelika and Auburn exits, something hit my windshield and I could see a crack in oncoming headlights. So, when it gets daylight, this is what I see

    So, I pull into Marietta, and see the windshield guy out front. But, before I get parked and hustle up to see if he can replace my windshield, he left. So, I talk to the lady at the desk, she calls them back, and he'll be back later on, but my truck is also close enough to a service to have that done as well...and, since I am getting a service done, they're turning up the speed....and while I was getting it ready for a windshield replacement and a service, I kept smelling axle lube...and I see my right rear wheel seal is leaking out of the blue. This thing just had new maypops put on just before I got it, and I look the truck over every morning, but you can see, the spray up the inside tire is fairly fresh, so to look on the bright side, I have time before I pick up my next load, and I will have everything back working and a speedier truck.

    At 68 you get to pass all those 65’s you would normally fall in behind.And there’s a 75 coming quick.

    Yeahhhhh, they got me in and out of the shop by 16:30. 'A' service, wheel seal, windshield, ECM update w/68 mph and no other defects found during his inspection (which means I am doing my job checking my truck daily)the tech said that the wheel seal must've just sprung a leak because there wasn't any gunk build up...overall, even though something broke my windshield and my truck started marking it's territory with 90w, it has ended up being a positive day (so far)
