    Typical Lazy Teamster. Always wanting someone else to do your job.

    I punched Guardrail in the nose once and broke it, he looked at me and laughed, he didn't even tear up, at that very moment I ran away, he ain't found me yet!

    Buy that 30 pack and keep it on ice. It may distract me long enough for you to run away.

    Your New Profession

    Kalak..Thank You for your information on your Swift Driving School experience. Many here have LONG FORGOTTEN what it is like to be a NEWBIE, or fresh from a Truck Driving School! As my career is going to end one of these days, I want to point a few things out to you: As a TRUCKLOAD driver you are going to be subjected to situations that are seemly to be overwhelming, keep your wits about you and think about what you are doing. Do not be afraid to ask for advice or help...the only dumb question is the one NOT ASKED! As you gain experience things will become second nature, but you will never stop learning EVER! When going down the road your actions or inaction will affect those around you, remember...THINK about what you are doing at ALL TIMES! Keep your distance from others in front of you when possiable, use your mirrors when doing lane changes, along with turn signals. Do not EVER drive or pull UNSAFE equipment. Do not let the company push you to do something that is not right or in Violation Of The Law. Many new drivers in the Truckload Segment don't last a year, turnover rate is 100% at almost every company. Ignore what you hear on the CB about Swift or you personally, it mainly comes from ignorance. Put your time in, gain valuable experience, maintain a good driving/ work record, then look into getting into the LTL segment. There are MANY OLD GEEZERS in this segment that are going to retire soon, companies are going to be looking for people with good histories to replace them. Many drivers here on the boards are mainly from the LTL side, there is a site that caters to the TRUCKLOAD side. Send me a private message and I'll tell you which one it is.
