    You backed off like I asked. That's why I didn't add you to my ignore list.

    I'm starting to get the hint. I'm going to watch you more closely now and play your game. 2 can do this. ;)

    Quit posting in my direction. You are a braggart, plain and simple. If I had the time or inclination, I'd post more examples. Not to worry, as much as you like to toot your horn, more will follow. All I have to do is wait.

    Well HE was the one that said the definition of professional was making a living at it not me. Does he seem to have his head on right? yeah to me he does. Why 30 years? because he will have a lot different view about than he does now IF he makes past the first 6months. How long for me to be professional ? Hell people still tell me to grow up, so I guess professional is still a ways away.

    Sheesh!

    Way to hijack the n00b's thread!

    Meanwhile, Kalak is busy trying to live down the wonderful reputation of his new employer.

    But hey, when you drive for a company that has more than 15,000 trucks on the road, you're gonna have more exposure. At least Mr. Kalak didn't choose Werner.

    would YOU hand over the keys to an expensive big rig that YOU OWNED, to a newbie and say..."just go"...?? i highly doubt it....YOU would WANT some years of experience before YOU can trust someone with your livelihood..

    and, would YOU go to a surgeon, freshly out of med school and maybe the required residency and trust him right off the bat to operate on YOUR body, or would YOU rather have an "experienced" surgeon open you up..???

    i'd want several years of operating under the guise of an experienced surgeon, before i trust a "newbie"....

    .
    uh...reality check here please....

    respect is EARNED, not freely given to anyone "just because" they are newly licensed...

    In most cases the answer would be "no".... however there is a huge difference between an Owner with a truck...or a few trucks, and that of Swift....And Swift is NOT just handing them the keys and saying "just go".....Keep in mind that Drivers have to get experience somewhere.......

    Again your equating being "professional" with being experienced......In the example you used above....I would bet that most everyone would consider a Surgeon as being a Professional......they have had extensive training and "experience" before they are allowed to preform surgeries on their own....They are not just given a Scalpel and told to get busy......Personally, I would not have an issue.......furthermore, how does a Surgeon or a Driver get Experience?............. They have to start someplace.......

    [QUOTE]Post by Pilot87 The New Drivers need our respect and our willingness to mentor them.....not tear them down treat them as if they have no value....
    respect is EARNED, not freely given to anyone "just because" they are newly licensed...
    [/QUOTE]

    Yes your right...I agree.....but to automatically disrespect a person because they don't have your experience is not the way to earn respect either.....

    I respect people until they give me a reason not to.....I'm not saying that we should respect new Drivers just because they are new....I'm saying that we should show them respect as Human beings.....until they either 'earn" that respect....or do something that would cause them to lose that respect....

    I can agree...respect is "earned"......but also I'd like to add that in order to Earn respect....a person has to be respectable............The quickest way to earn respect.....is to show respect to others first.....

    While it pains me to agree with you in this case
    I do. GR using his "position of authority" to bully and the other person ( have to be family friendly or risk getting slapped on the hands) just being stupid

    No, you just said that I was abusing my authority. I didn't. I called somebody out on their bull****.

    Don't get all butt hurt because you broke the rules and got caught.
