    All American 82, I'm pretty sure BuddyD is one of the Mods burner accounts. BuddyD does this all the time, but it's always the posters he insults who the mods go after, they never go after Buddy himself and he's given the green light to run his mouth all day long behind his keyboard.

    BuddyD is retired and has 7000+ posts in a matter of two years on this forum alone. That's a WHOPPING 9.5 posts per day, actually just a little bit more than that. He has also claimed to regularly post on 2 or 3 other trucking sites as well.

    I tell you this, AllAmerican82, because that's how sad this dude's life is. He retired from trucking, only to #### on people all day long on trucking websites.

    He's a sad, bitter boomer who the mods give carte blanche to run his mouth behind his keyboard while banning those who rightfully call out his ########.

    I just feel bad for his poor wife. He clearly doesn't pay her any attention if he's banging out 9.5 posts on this website alone per day. He pays more attention to his avatars than he does his own #### wife. Pathetic.

    Like I said, it's probably one of the mods burner accounts

    They delete my post because I said to ignore him and it wasn’t even insulting.

    they wear a cape for him, probably have the same boomer mentality or something.

    whatever, it is what it is. I just like how they call the young people snowflakes when they are the ones getting hurt on a forum.
     
    All-American82 and GSP2020 Thank this.

    99.9% of my driving has been in my own truck, but I can honestly say that the turkey I have always worked for never offered me a paid vacation, even after 40 years. I fooled him though and take all the time I want off. lol

    I work for the federal government and we get 440 hours of Annual Leave...which equals to 11 weeks of vacation or personal days. We also get accrued sick leave that rolls over year after year. So someone who worked for 30 years can get over 2000 hours of sick leave...which equals around a year or so...which you get paid when you retire.

    Personally, I'm a workaholic and I enjoy my job. I wouldn't know what to do with all that time off...lol.

    That's MY point. Thank you! Plus, like I stated, I was wondering if this was the latest scam to get new drivers. recruiters are ALWAYS coming up with some scam to obtain new drivers. And the amount of "vacation" just seemed out of line for what I know about the industry for a NEW driver to most companies!

    I take my time off, I EARNED it!

    Thank you for getting it!!! :)

    Ya, my Ex wife works for the state of Texas and Holy cow. she could accrue the "paid time off". After her first couple of years, she was taking off months at a time.( by saving it and using it to benefit her wants/needs)
     
    Sho Nuff and FlaSwampRat Thank this.

    my wife goes to bingo, and babysits the grand kids, and bakes for the grand kids school events.

    sometimes i babysit the kids here.

    i am retired, i did MY TIME when some of you were still in diapers.

    i earned my time, unlike many others here.

    what difference does it make how many times i post here, or at other sites?

    tv is boring, save for a football game.

    you best need to know your opponent......

    Thats absurd. Never, EVER, feel bad for a govt worker. Especially if theyre furloughed because of an impasse on the federal budget lol. I couldnt believe the virtue signaling going on when soup kitchens were offering govt workers free meals during the 2017 shut down.

    You think that's absurd. These guys spent 60 + years of federal service. One of them has over 5000 hours of accumulated sick leave. I've NEVER heard of any government employee get that much.

    Now THAT'S absurd :D;)
