And here I am, just having driven recently to/from Alaska with a KSG15 riding along in the truck. OMG NO PEPPER SPRAY WHAT SHALL I EVER DO
Nevermind the toque. What's up with those fellers with the raggedy beat up chewed off multi colour trucks running around in flip flops and one of these jabbering into a headset in some chicken scratch language?Hey, where's your toque eh? Ha look at that guy with no toque on eh,
I am sorry I didn't mean to get out of line.
I didn't quote a regulation. It's legal to carry wasp/hornet/bear spray. It's also legal to carry a stainless steel ball point pen, which is what I also use for protection. What do you tell a criminal that's trying to rob you; "OK, you can have my cash because I'm not allowed by law to spray you with bear spray or blind you with my ball point pen."
This is where driving for a smaller company comes in handy. If you really don't want to go, threaten to park the truck and quit. If you're a good driver and don't give the company much other issues, they'll find another load for you to run.As a W2 employee, you really don't have much say in the matter.
you do what, "the man" tells you to do for your employment, or you seek wages elsewhere. Kind of just how it works in business.
The other option is you go through the hoops and decide to get your own authority to make the rules and do what you want.
Why do Canadians typically assume that the US is some kind of war zone? This is flat out not true and beyond irritating.I feel 10 times safer in Canada than the USA
If you’re in a spot as a trucker that you need to defend yourself, or the truck, physically, there was a lot more going wrong and a lot of better decisions that could have been made
