Happy truckin’ New Year
GG — Here we go again. Another year of being screwed by dispatchers and carriers. Why do I keep driving? Why can’t dispatchers tell the truth? Why can’t recruiters tell the truth? And they [carriers] wonder why there are so many empty seats! They don’t know how to treat people. My friend works for a carrier that really treats him well. I don’t have enough experience to work for them. But getting this experience is killing me!
Yeah. Happy Truckin’ New Year. If things don’t improve in the next six months, I’m changing careers.
Dan, Dan, Dan…if I forwarded your note to someone getting ready to “jump,” it would convince them to step back and try life again.
If you expect sympathy, Dan, forget it. The pain of learning to distinguish between right and wrong, good and bad and those who lie and tell the truth is part of living. Furthermore, anyone who succeeds at anything is never a victim, but a hard-working student who realizes class isn’t over until their last breath.
Dan, you have two choices. Learn to make better decisions to improve your situation, or apply for residency in a country that makes all the choices for you. If you chose the latter and are still not happy, you still have only yourself to blame.
I am definitely going to have a Happy Truckin’ New Year!
