Dispatcher wanted me to drive when I was tired

So last week I had to change sleep schedules a few times because of the timing of the loads. I ended up having a 10hr break and was able to grab a full nights sleep but then a half hour into my drive I was told to take another 10hr break.

I pulled into the next stop and called in to let them know I…

When you don't like your job..

Everyone has had a job they didn't like at least once or twice. If you ask 10 people if they like their job, more than half would say they didn't.
