    I took his goats because they took up too much of his time. I need Billy working, not playing with the kids!!

    A customer gave me a pair, I'm ready for the next one. But at my old age I may be dead by then.

    Billy has a tough job, keeping these new guys straight and an eye on Flyb's parking places.

    Are you saying these requirements are not adequate? I bet they are similar to most other LTL carriers. And just how would you handle differently? Easy to sit back and arm chair quarterback. And you remember we all had to start somewhere as drivers.

    Us real drivers had to start out and work our way up to jobs like this, but this wasn't a job to have when I started many years before you.

    Most of the people we hire out of school are complete idiots, trash the trucks and blow up clutches. You must be ok with this.

    Not at all if this is happening. I'm sure someone in corporate would love to hear your solution. Like I said, I would bet our requirements are similar to most all other LTL's. Not every driver I run across has a ton of experience but I would surely not call them idiots like you have....

    This is the only place we get most of our drivers from. It is happening and you work for a training mill now. Get over it. A guy with as much experience as a Swift driver can drive for OD. Anymore argument?

    Or jack knife a line tractor on dry ground. Oops he forgot he was pulling a 53' with a single screw. Imagine my amazement when I came in and saw my tractor damaged on both sides.
