    According to my new TM, they are hiring 2 more city drivers. So hopefully I won't be the bottom man for long. I am prepared for a lean winter though. Many have told me if you can make it your first year you will be fine. I hope that's true.

    What's so bad about Southeastern can't be no worse than Cooper?

    I ran extra board for Cooper back in the middle 90's.. I loved it... That's when they left you alone and let you run... I hear,since Junior took things over, not so many happy people over there any more.. I'm sure most of the older guys are gone that were there when I was....

    I was hub at one time, one time.. I'll retire before I go hub again... All these companies use to be flexible and cooperative, but no longer.... I'm on a shorter L/H run than I'm use to, but I'm happy, for the moment.... No one breaths down my neck.. I leave at 8pm and get back around 3am to 4am and go home.. The way I like it...

    I hear ya loud and clear driver, this new TM just terminated me for no justifiable reason other than hes trying to make a name for himself. 8yrs down the drain just like that, its ok though I'll be alright. I put in apps all over all ready got several call backs for interviews. Can't wait to be passing these ugly red and black trucks down the road lol!!!

    Just got my paycheck for last week. 39.04 reg hours, 9.84 ot hours and 494 miles because I volunteered to run a weekend road run. In 7 years at SEFL I never had a check this big. I can afford to sit home all winter if this last through the summer.
