    ooops. i typed, "that sais something about the pot"", when it should have been, "said something about the pot"". sorry 'bout that. i was poking fun at the other two, poking fun at the wife that coulda married either one.

    it's always been give them 30 minutes for free. the only gripe i have, is they count that 30 minutes as a lunch. let's say you break down on your first trip of the night. 30 minute lunch......well if you have to wait when you finally get to the terminal, what happens then...another 30 minute lunch. IMO, you should only have to give 30 minutes for free once per night. of course it does beat what happens at alot of other companies...they get nothing for breaking down or for waiting on a load.

    I left Averitt and came to Saia because of better pay, now 1 year later having been closed out in one Terminal, sent to another, placed on a run nobody wants with short miles, I am questioning my choice myself...:chairshot:

    What terminal were you at and where are you now? When you start at the bottom you can expect to get the runs no one else wants. I came from AE and ran the system for about a year, than ran some ok runs and some not so ok. Now 3 yrs later I'm on a HST and get all I want on the weekends. It's much better than AE. Just look at the cost of your ins and the way vacation pays.
