Current Events

Looking for a new job at my age is really frustrating. Especially at this time of the year when the market is flooded with young people...
Sheesh. Fagedda bout it.

Truck driving is looking more and more attractive. Even though I'll be out and about on the road - away from here (I'm a homebody at heart) I do love to drive. Picking a "company" to drive for is getting to be a job in itself. Soon, I'm just going to close my eyes and let my finger fall on the page - as a way of deciding. That's called being definitive I suppose.

In other news, my nephew decided (rightly) to get back together with his girlfriend and move back to Indiana. we are happy for them.

We nearly lost part of the house on Monday. falling trees, lightning and high wind have a way of reminding us that Mother Nature is a force that sometimes cannot be reckoned with. Our thoughts are with the people in the Midwest at this time.

BU$H has ignored disaster victims once again. The Katrina Debacle has taught his administration absolutely ZILCH. Gallivanting around Europe like a lost little schoolboy on summer vacation - he should be ashamed of himself.

Then when he does return - pushing Congress to legislate for offshore drilling like the mad idiot he is. This is just what the Big Oil Corporations needed as an excuse to push their agenda on the American People and the Planet...

Let's all bet on oil speculations like the big boys do and make billions off the little people (see Enron Loophole) fudging their possible 'futures'...

I do drive a truck.
Some companies will train you, but some have bad reputations for not doing it well.

My suggestion:
get your CDL from Roadmaster or another established school. Their placement is excellent and you can pick and choose (if you have a clean record) what kind of company to work for and what sort of run you're looking for.

I'm home every night. I drive about 300 miles/day and unload my own 28' truck.

Thanks Angelia... I will check Roadmaster out... even the name sounds ominous. ;o)

i share your pain in finding a job, people are being layed off because of gas prices and nobody seems to be hiring

it sounds like tense times for you.
i hope you find employment soon; driving trucks sounds like long hard work though.
