Barnem and Bailey recently made a proposal to purchase Swift Transportation. News release stated that Barnum made the statement that he personally didn't want the trucks, only the clowns who drive them.:rolleyes:

Why am I suddenly envisioning the SWIFT driver I seen last night doing about 30 mph through the Flying J parking lot in Greenwood, LA? :)

I also heard the that most dangerous place to be, in the world of trucking is in the middle of a SWIFT Terminal.

What do you have when 365 SWIFT Trucks are all headed in the same direction along the same Interstate. That's taking up all 4 Lanes and 91.25 rolls of them?
Answer: 1 year of experience.

I think you are still under a year. A couple of them were sleeping while driving, that doesn't count as experience :)

Damn, Muhammid Ali couldn't have thrown a counter punch that well ;)

I love the large company jokes, but it is true that you have to start somewhere, and unfortunately, the large companies are the ones that make themselves readily available to hire drivers.

I should know, I started with J.B. Hunt 16 years ago. Back then, big companies were really hated (especially JB).

Try not to generalize too much. I know its all in good fun but some might not know how to take it. Let em serve their time and maybe we can get a few good ones out of it. I started at USA n I used to hear alot of USA jokes but Im too concieted to let it bother me ( the roads are definitly safer with me out there driving, percentage wise ). Then again, we cant pick pick on 4wheelers cuz we know they all S@#K.

You always need to consider you started driving 4 wheels before you drove 18

Whoa!!! Did ya'll run out of things to talk about. This thread was only one year, and, nine months old. Old dusty stuff makes me sneeze. :tissue:

I like Swift drivers. They are soooo predictable.
