    In Indiana it was a simple chauffer license. For public passenger, bus, limo, etc it was a Public Passenger Chauffer License. Indiana kept it simple. I don’t remember any type of class in the chauffer license for any type of truck. Just the PPC for passenger carrying.

    I absolutely debase myself, and lie prostrate on the floor groveling for your forgiveness............I was reading my yearly Teamsters Pension statement, and got so excited calculating just how many more days I have left,.....that my finger stuttered over my reply to you,.....My hands were shaking as I realized I'm under 600 days, now, for both the Social Security and Pension to kick in,.....Couple those with the $400.00 healthcare subsidy that our Health and Welfare Fund has until Medicare,.....and maybe a good, inexpensive pick from Healthcare.gov...a.k.a. Obamacare,...........and I can spend my waning days in relative comfort, infesting the local McDonald's every morning with the resident group of retired truck drivers, to lie, tell stories, and solve the world's problems,...for hours on end, for the price of a (senior) coffee.........Let us know if your route will bring you past that McDonald's,.......We'll all gather out on the sidewalk , and salute you as you go past...........

    And,.......Of course,....now you're going to tell me that the Government is going to rip most of my pension off of me,.....cut 90% of my Social Security benefit,.....tax my healthcare subsidy at an exorbitant rate,.......and,....absolutely defund and trash that Socialist healthcare scheme....a.k.a. Obamacare,........Oh,....and McDonald's will impose a 10 minute time limit for those over 55,...........Because, as we all know,.....the only ...."pension"....worth having is a 401(k),......everything else is trash,.....or soon will be, once the Republicans are completely in charge....................Worker's Paradise, then, eh?

    Hammer, I was not meaning the 130K but the 12.83% (ROR) Rate of Return. I was wondering how your 401k did? My 401k is a rollover from Wilson over the past 14yrs. I don't contribute to my 401k, I prefer IRA's because ABF does not match. They pay into my pension. My two IRA's give me more control and my ROR between my Roth and Traditional IRA's was 24.90% in 2014. Giving my total ROR for all retirement accounts an 18.42% return.

    I would ABFer but the penalty for taking money out of an IRA is way to high. I try not to pay interest (other than tax deductible) or penalties. Ask me again in 9 years. :438:

    Prior to CDL's (1990) in Massachusetts, it was class 1, 2, or 3. Class 1 being tractor-trailer; class 2 being straight truck and class 3 being passenger cars. I remember getting my class 1 (1970, I think) only on the signature of my boss saying I had over 5000 miles of experience. No written or road test required.

    ABFer, here I am stuck in the motel again. I think I am going to get a non-union job so I will not feel so guilty about taking the companies money for spending time on the internet. I wounder if ConWay would give me job so I could sit in their motel for free?

    Whomever made an asinine statement about Hostess.Obviously didn't do any research on the causes prior to Hostess' demise.The actions by the corporate pigs to self inflict harm to their very own corpiration.All the while they were draining the financial coffers dry.

    Of course he did, Brother,....It was quite asinine,.......And,...you don't expect him to actually find out the causes, do you?,....when it's SO much fun just blurting out anything that you've picked up off of talk radio or the fluffy media.......he tried to throw a textual "hand grenade" in amongst our posts, ....Fun to do, just throw and run away......unfortunately, he chose our board,.....where we hold ourselves to just a tiny bit higher of a standard than that. Even Brother Purple Hammer,....who probably disagrees with just about everything we say,.....can express himself a little more lucidly, and intelligently,....than the so-called "gentleman" who wants to make a...."point".....by referencing the Hostess debacle.
