    George, The idea behind this site is to create harmony amongst people in the transportation industry. Not discontent and fighting.

    Please refrain from making posts that will only lead to flame wars.

    Thank You

    My post was only stating that I, also, have had major setbacks in the trucking industry ie alittle "George history." The difference is I do not wish bad things on the people of other companies. If a driver doesn't want to "blink their lights" or be curtious to fellow drivers on the road ,that' one thing. But to express willfull and wantan illwill and hardships on a group is another! Opinions seem to be posted freely on the Boards and this is my opinion, not inflammatory, not malicious, just an opinion. George

    Another insulting remark by a Con-Way driver.
    Have enough respect to keep these remarks in some other forum.

    For those who may be interested, the Teamsters web site does have an update informational report available on the bankruptcy and some estimated time lines on the future payments due on the claims.

    I have one not out of the box because 2 of my former co-workers bought one for me. But what the heck is the $850.00 thing about.

    A book that is out of print and unavailable may command a high price.
    Look a little closer at the Amazon web page and you will see a used book for $50.00 !
