    You be careful out there. One of the few line drivers that earn my respect unlike those boys in the Midwest complaining about a little wind storm!

    Safety jokes about the Wyoming TDC saying they have such a low participation ratio that everyone got a trophy.

    First as stated before Billy, I am a line haul driver. Secondly you being a perfect driver, we have trailers that don't track correctly, the Williamette Valley has a hell of a crosswind. Load out of balance, tread on tires, kind of gear being used, grooves on the highway and the construction zone. Another thing as stated by others, the time of night and nothing's worse than being blinded by high beams in your mirrors. All of these could cause your doubles or triples to whip. Actually I think that our company has exceptional drivers, considering what we do. Try following UPS parcel. Billy I invite you to do a ride along with me. Bring a extra pair of boxers. Hahahaha. Really Billy you want to think that line needs to give up their pay. Guess what. It's when a city driver uses my tractor, that there's garbage left in it, tires curbed, not fueled, or personal items missing.That's why I have a untouchable. Also cuz it's so clean you can eat off of the floor.

    Another thing, those that cry the loudest usually are the most guilty. Texting Billy. Be careful around me. I have video and photos of guilty parties in our yard of people that like to snitch others out. That's why I smile so much. If I see a newbie having problems or doing something that could be unsafe, I will go help them or explain to them. That's how I learned. I learn something new each day. I listened to the veteran drivers.

    Really. I bet you pull it uphill too. If it wasn't for line haul, you'd have empty trailers with no pallets.

    No I wouldn't, they have me jump in the truck and run over the mountain every winter to rescue a line driver that just couldn't make it so we got freight on the dock. Watch out next time you say I can't, because I maybe showing up to show you how it's done and when u come back to the yard no one will want to speak with you for the trouble you caused delaying our freight and valuable city drivers.

    Remember what you are.. just a line driver. A job that can be outsourced in a heartbeat.
