    now i normally try to keep a good atrtitude and if i dont have anything good to say i just shut hell up , but when you get a call from the state police before daylight it tend to ruin your day it sure as hell didnt make me a bit happy. in perticular when it comes from AZ. i dint even like AZ.

    it seems one of my drivers had an accident , he back over a car, now that in itself is not so bad you say, well it is when the car he backed over is an AZ dot car, not a good thing, now the driver is in jail and the truck is impounded , they cant seem to tell me where the driver is or the truck but they know there both locked up, aint that sweet.

    so now i got to go to AZ and see if i can find out what the hell s going on and try to streighten the mess out , and get the driver out of jail , if i can find him, in AZ that is not a sure thing, but they no what money is.

    i already no i got to buy them a new car that is a given ,but it could be worse from what they have told me so far there are no injurys at least my driver is ok,

    got another truck due there somtime this afternoon hopefully he will have more information before i get there strange how everything is a secret.

    but be that as it may im going to make it better got to think positive im going to make it all better, first thing is find the driver and get him the hell outta there ands just go from there .

    wish me luck.----southernpride.---:biggrin_25510:

    Good Luck !!!!!!!!









    Only time I had to fly somewhere like that, was to drive the truck home myself !
    Hope that is NOT the case.

    Hope things work out. It would be interesting to know why he is sitting in jail with your truck being impounded. If it was as simple as "backing into or over a car" it would just be an insurance thing. Anyway good luck.

    Ive got an ex-driver STILL in Jail from last year
    117 mph Tucumcari, NM
    No telling how fast he was actually running,thats what he slowed down to when the bear report was given and proceeded to get shot.

    He was laughing the day I flew out to get the truck out of the pound,sad to see a #### good hand of 7 yrs blowing it off in such a manner.

    "That 379 Pete couldn't get passed that little white Columbia"
    According to the Judge "He is done driving" he will never release
    his TX CDL.

    Hey look at this way. It's only got to get better. You've been out there long enough to know how to handle it and I'm sure by your examples the others drivers are going to give you a 150% to help you. Keep cool.
