    Sorry guys I was in a bad mood yesterday, I know lately I have been complaining alot.
    I just miss the good ol days of running alot having freight, being a green board driver, working the dock sometimes.
    All that is gone now because of the change and slowdown I guess.
    If you only knew what I lost when they told me I had to go out all week on the road again you might understand why I have been complaining.
    Someone mentioned lay-off well we have to many drivers in the system right now that is why we sit for 24 hours at a time would'nt you think.
    It just feels like they are trying to get you to quit sometimes.

    It's all good there bro. Sometimes a feller needs to let off some steam. God knows this biz. will get a man worked up some times I know it does me. Nothing wrong with sounding off in here as long as your one of us which you are.
    When guys come in here from other outfits and try to slam us then that is just wrong.
    Spring is about sprung and we made it thru the slow time. I think real good times are right around the corner! Keep the Faith man....:thumbsup:

    Nothing wrong with complaining about time away from your family and home, and having that precious time wasted sitting still, and/or being out all week.. Nice to see ITN, that it means so much to you. You're a good man! I'm a peddle guy, and coming home just three hours late some nights causes problems on the 'ole Legshot homefront. Luckily for me, I married my one time dispatcher, and she understands. 9 to 5ver's sometimes don't get it. Just roll with it, and it will all fall back into place... Legshot:loser:

    Understood INTOTHENOW and it is acceptable to get things off your chest now and then and to vent frustration. Yes, there are many drivers in the system now and many drivers have to sit 24 hrs or more at times, but at least everyone is employed and has benefits.

    Would you rather run 3,000 miles per week and run on your break while others get laid off including possibly you? Or would you rather see everyone working with benefits even though they may get 2,000-2,500/week. Me? I'd rather have the latter. I'd rather work than be laid off or see others laid off which is why I often give up a day whenever possible, without pay, to a driver who is told to stay home and has a family to feed. In this economy we all must sacrifice, but at least we're all working! Keep on keeping on!

    I'm going to place my name on p&d when/if it gets posted again..... Keep up the good work LS. Rob may need to spend an xtra $200 million next year on somebody else's property. I'm sure he priciates it. I'm trying to do my part here in the south also. I only filled on side of my tank up at the terminal. I went to the truck stop and put the other tank on my disney credit card. It helps Rob out and it adds points to my card for vacation.
