Do these dumb shits pay back any allowance on the crap they leave you with? Some of the stuff I see you post on poor trailer condition, I'd worry about bearings/ brakes etc ????

Some of these companies that got rid of ther own company drivers are realizing that they took care of them they hire us under that the trailer is ready to go and everything is secure and dot ready. I get paid extra messing with this stuff buy its not as much as rolling down the road.....This particular company I just pulled for thanked me and realized the mechanic they had was full of baloney and is going to change and also tire the stuff in the trailer down better.I got 3 hrs @53 bucks a hr plus 2 53 dollar stops for all that baloney I think the load paid 2637 for 1094 miles and It was lite so I got over 8mpg

That was a mess! Had my surgery and back home hurting like hell. My sister just picked up my prescription for pain meds. Had to fix both sides of both bones in lower right leg and also put tight rope for tendon plus fix ankle. Got to go back in two weeks for hard cast, Joe

Was ridding along on I-44 Rolla Mo hit a bump and lost my power to the engine. Liked to have go run over on the side of the road.Its happened before even when I drove for a company I went right to the problem.It was a hot wire to the computer.It was 23 degrees and I couldn't skin back the wire and found a knife a friend gave me many years ago and got the wire skinned back and success!!!!Then I realized I had bought a a Benchmade and had it in the cab.

This is the Benchmade.Its pretty!It's wide and after breaking my hands it's hard to hold the skinny ones!
