nice pic dana. these people (wilcox) who i have personal experience with, are sharks hiring least hireable (sic i know) people who could not be hired by other companies since even in the construction business resumes, references must be listed on job app. nowadays, truckdrivers are under the microscope, so dave is well aware of the misqualifications of this particular driver, but hired him anyway. that is because he could tell him i will take a chance on you but you will be paid low wages because i consider you a high risk based on your app. what he did not tell this job applicant or any applicant, was he considered truck maintenance low priority, profits high priority. trust me, i know about this company and many others just like them. however, this driver should have re-evaluated his career choice after dropping transmission in previous job. wouldn't you? if you realize you are incapable of driving a motor vehicle without destroying it, would you? in your wildest nightmares, would you go out and do the same thing in real life? this driver had real clues he wasn't qualified for his job. AND SO DID DAVE WILCOX.

Thanks driverdan!

I don't know, it's all just very, very tragic to me.

I hope that we all re-evaluate our choices in life on a continuous basis, and learn from our mistakes.

I know that I will never be the head of a corporate insurance company....
