    Why was the "victim" stabbed? Just some guy minding his own business? or perhaps they deserved it...

    I dunno. I trained two guys. I was ready to stab the first one by the time I finally got him off my truck. He kept swerving and slamming on the brakes whenever animals ran out in front of him while I was in the bunk. I had told him many times before that he should let off the gas and maintain his lane, that's what the deer guard is for, but the instinct to swerve is pretty strong I guess.

    I wouldn't have trained the second guy except he was a friend of mine from my last office job.

    I shouldn't have been training anyone, by the way. I didn't have enough experience. Funny thing is, I didn't have enough experience to know that I didn't have enough experience to be training. Now I do.

    Thankfully, neither of those two is driving any more, as far as I know. And I'll never train again. I can't stand running teams. I'd rather go back to working in a cubicle.
