    Tell it to magoo, he thinks all trucking is just like running a dump. Nothing like a bent liftgate, leaking pallet jack, and a custoner on a hill!

    It sounds like you weren't working long enough days then. At the end of a long day, my lunch box is empty and ways almost nothing.
    Give the working world a try again, but this time work longer hours. It will help your shoulder if that box is lighter.

    10-12 was enough for me and a 1&1/2 hour commute on top. I was so busy I didn't have time to eat my lunch,
    If I were getting the big dollars like you I would have worked around the clock:17142:

    If my wheels are turning, I'm eating. Lucky I have fantastic metabolim, or I'd weigh 500 lbs...

    You are the one who said that you stood around with your thumb in your hinder all day, in that dump industry.
    You aren't qualified to make the big bucks like some of us are. You should have kept your crap together like some of the rest of us have.

    Exactly. When my wheels are turning is when my right arm is constantly digging around in my lunch box.

    I was talking about the 18 wheeler days, the Dump truck gig was a racket yes I loved it.
    Sadly your right I can't qualify any more for your jobs(not your's, you don;t have one)
    All things come to an end, save your money people, your time is coming sooner than you think

    Sitting around with your thumb inserted seems to be right up your alley.

    I sure hope that my wife never finds out where I spend my 50+ hours each week then.

    Now that Obama's hand will stop reaching into our pockets, it should get a little easier.

    Well, I can say I qualify. Found out yesterday I've earned Indiana Motor Truck Association Driver of the Month. Now one of 12 for IMTA Driver of the Year!

    Congratulations Jimmy. I got a million miles a few years back but that's the best I'll do in this lifetime.

    I'd say I've probably got short of 4 million. OFFICIALLY tho, IMTA credited me with 2 million Road Miles, plus, 54,000 hrs/22 years Local Delivery, plus 2 years management. IMO, local is far more dangerous- creating a break in traffic to back across lanes and down alleys.

    Safety gave me a $500 gift card always thought it was kind of strange getting rewarded for not running into anything, but it was appreciated.

    That's awesome Jimmy. For those of us who are safety conscious and have driven for decades and have millions of safe driving miles under our belt, that is a very respectable, coveted award.

    My last quarterly safe driving bonus was about $330.00.(about $110.00 per month) just for doing what I'm paid to do. We also won "Team of the Year" which brought in another $100.00 cash, and a custom embroidered jacket.
    My buddy won a cruise on the Caribbean for "Person of the year" in my region.
    Safety is huge and something that I take pride in, and I enjoy seeing people get rewarded for safe driving. It's not only good for the company but it also means that we made it home safely to our families and kept the public safe while doing it.

    Climb up over the dump bed ( pretty high off the ground sort of like walking on the top of a load of drywall or lumber to detarp) and jump down inside then shovel out all the stuff that got stuck in the bed to finish up your day. Then climb your fat ass back out again.
    Because you don't know what you will be picking up in the morning.
    Might not be the same stuff, might be some expensive gravel somebody wants so you can't mix in your old clay stuck in the bed.
    I didn't like that part as you can imagine. And if you got hurt there may not be anyone around until the next morning to help.
    And you leave the cell phone in the cab so you don't bust it up.
    Each job has it's disadvantage's I guess

    Sorry, my ass ain't that fat to consider that much work. If you think that's a lot of work, I've done jobs that would put you out to pasture.
