    Why all the flack toward Swift? Because Swift is a large target and it's extremely difficult to sling bullshit with any kind of accuracy.

    I don't think any of us hate Swift... well, @Duck hates everything. We poke some fun at Swift... they are after all a large easily hit target. Y'all have a good time inflating the egos of snails at my expense. Its all in good fun.

    I'd say if anyone's feelings have been hurt, its more demonstrative of the need to be able to laugh at what happens out here, to laugh at ones self. There's way too many folks wound much too tight in this industry as it is.

    Rock on brothers and sisters!

    :taunt:

    First 50 hours the trainer must be at the passenger side. After that, it's up to the mentor if he wants to team. Mine wants to team right away, but I said I need to be confident first.

    I think I'll drive nights the last two weeks.

    Supposedly, Swift trucks are governed at 62, but I got a speeding warning twice today!
    Going 68 on 70 limit (down hill, coasting for 3 seconds).

    I did pass few trucks though... :eek:
    I wont disclose their names...

    This is a very easy job. No skill and the entry bar is set very low. Why would you not take the wheel? and let the man rest? Do you not like your trainer or what?

    Ha!!

    :clap:


    No, I didn't know that Jake would disengage if I had the foot on the gas pedal. The trainer distracted me with his hitchhiker girl story...:rolleyes: (the first time warning)

    Swift rules...

    He's really trying hard to help (to get my 200 hrs as fast as I can, but with delivering on time). I'm willing to work hard, but not at the rate of:
    sleep = 4.5 hrs
    driving = 9.5 hrs
    EDIT: rest (what's left) = un/loading, eating, toilet.

    Good idea! So do I. This work is more mental than physical! did you account for that? I bet not.

    I don't want to butt heads w/ the trainer, he believes (he's) doing the best thing (for everyone). And I believe in getting done with this training ASAP so I can run on my own.

    Let me run on my own, then you can tell me how bad I'm running it. :rolleyes:

    Alright, Fair enough! keep us posted and I don't want to hear no bullshit about, How swift screwed you over. Or how working a 14 hour day is outrageous or you left the industry for a different line of work regardless of the situation.

    And I will in turn STFU.
