    Yeah, I really want Rick Yemm pulling me out of a snow drift.....hook up a chain and grab a gear and accelerate to 25 mph. Then act dumbfounded because the chain broke.

    PORKCHOP, now there's a piece of work. He must of read a book about trucking because so far his skills are that of a student or below. And how about his CB talk. I thought that the good buddy thing went out years ago. Just how many lot lizards does he expect to see along the Dalton? He thinks the real truck drivers are out of the south but I hate to tell him that's not the way I saw it when I started in Jacksonville FL in 1977.

    It's a 50/50 if he stays. The show cracks me up.

    That show is strictly for entertainment value. some of the things they do on that show is asinine, like hugh and rick picking up those 2 trailers that had been sitting for a year no pre-trip done on them, no tug test once they coupled. Rick driving like he's driving a atv and then there's good old if you cant find them grind them mince meat, on my bad I meant pork chop. Makes for some good laughs

    So unreal how many rookies throughout the seasons gets on the show and then has the mind set that, "ok now im the big dog or i wouldnt be on this show".... Just the the "new kid" this season. Mentioned something about how he looked up to Jack Jesse etc etc....now hes on the show, thinks Jack is a prick. Or hes going to slow blah blah. For one, Jack gets a bunch of the bigger, heavier and haz loads and this new kid just want to turn and burn with this stuff as if it were all dry van drop and hook crap. He acts like a spoiled kid. Hes in such a hurry wants to run run run, gets so upset when jack is slower than this kid likes and when he has to load that truck on his flat, he *complains* about how jack should be out there helping him and crys about it. Well, ill be getting entertainment for the rest of the season every time that kid fails. Thats all he deserves so far.

    *Had to replace the female dog word, that is more commonly used as a descriptive word referring to one who complains/whines.*
