So happy!!!

I’m a single mother of two with no family at all and a mortgage... I stepped out on faith due to a daily 98 mile round trip commute. I went on LOA in hopes to find a position near my new home that I bought last year. It took almost 4 months and I thought I was going to have to take a big pay cut but God said no you don’t my child. I got exactly what I wanted... $30 an hour with a 15 mile commute. Praise God!!!! Thank you so much for this…

Hello dear, l am a single mother who have worked with a company in my country as heavy duty operator but since 2016 l was paid off…

THE 10 commandments of trucking

Saw this post on Facebook or somewhere and saved it because it's SO true and sharing it with this group.

1- Cover your ass. Take pictures, get it in writing, scale everything, get a dashcam and run it all the time.

2- NEVER trust a dispatcher.

3- Never enter any place you don't know how to get out of. Throw the brake, set the 4 ways and walk yourself in. always make sure you can get out.

4-. Don't screw over the next guy. Leave the truck…

Definitely agree all good I'd add a 11th have respect for yourself and others put clothes on not just a loincloth and respect the…

Not a fan

A lot of places are trying out self driving trucks saying it will make trucking freight safer and cheaper. Anybody who has driven a truck knows that it’s NOT that easy. What happens if a steer tire blows out?! Or if the weather is crap? Computers can’t fix everything. I honestly never liked the idea of self-driving anything. I feel like I am in the Twilight Zone. Anyone else?

A self driving Research Vehicle or vessel filled with all sorts of lab equipment would certainly be useful and probably a dream…

Yeah....can't explain this one.

I was driving back home around 3 in the morning and I had not seen my family for over 4 weeks so I decided to take a short cut through some pretty isolated back roads that I didn’t know too well. It was literally in the middle of NOWHERE but I figured if it got me home faster it would be worth it.

So I get to this part of the road with all of these old creepy trees on the side. I hadn't seen a house or anything in hours, it was just miles and…

Probably from watching too much movies, your unconcious got you scared and you trying to call 911 eased your inner fear; there is…

Dispatcher is making it IMPOSSIBLE for me!!

So my new dispatcher is a real pain in my ass. Last week I get my load assignment but the delivery time was nearly impossible to make. I would literally need perfect weather and road conditions to be able to make the deadline not to mention drive non-stop without at least one fuel stop and a bathroom break. It just wasn't possible and I ended up looking like the jerk who couldn’t handle things. This isn’t the first time this has happened. What do…

Flat out tell your dispatcher you cant make it. Its that easy, Im retired now but but I really miss arguing with those M…

Keep my girl or my job???

I just started trucking to help pay off some of my loans. I like it more than I thought I would, but recently my girl asked me to stop. She says I don't spend enough time with her anymore. She said to pick my job or her, that's messed up! I like making money, I NEED it! I feel like I am screwed either way here, but should I keep the girl or the job?

Trucking is a. brutal nomadic and idk lower frequency existance.. Why dont you compromise and give it a time. limit. After all…

He went through my personal belongings!!

Last week after passing the scale I was pulled over for a DOT inspection. Figured it was routine when the officer asked if could see the inside of my truck. I got nothing to hide so I said sure. I was not carrying anything I shouldn't, but all of a sudden he starts rifling through my stuff and finds a large plastic cooking knife that was next to a spatula and some seasonings under my seat. I have a microwave in the back and sometimes I cook stuff…

Next time say I don't consent to searches and that's it. If the cop has no probable cause and no reasonable suspicion, they have…

What do I do?

I work for a window company that is run by a husband and wife. They are looking to retire in like 5 years... sooner if possible. The only other employees that do all the work are myself and a younger guy (27). He is just finishing up college within the next year and has been offered a job to begin within now and the end of the year from a company he interns with. Him and I love working together but the boss is a pain in the ass. I’ve a few…

My license got suspended

Story time. I was driving for a mega carrier (rhymes with Qwift) last January and ended up getting a ticket for going on the parkway and not letting the Staties know. I had to get to my delivery to the next exit and did not learn this until the officer was writing a ticket.. No big deal, the company said they would cover the ticket. Except I had to stop driving OTR for them shortly afterward to take care of a family member, and was out for a good…

Try to pay the tickets if you can . Then try to go from there and check around to see about another job . Just ask Jesus for his…
