Lets face it, The truck drivers of today in general are nothing more than steering wheel holders that jump from one pile of --- to another
because of (I am not getting miles or numerous other reasons) Of course what they dont tell you they take to much time off
and they cant deliver the freight when there supposed to do so they lose a day that way. Of course they have bad dispatches but 90% of the time they dont do there job and then want to blame somebody else for it.

Are you kidding me? Sure there are a few guys out there like that, but over the road drivers work their @sses off! Most of these guys have multiple log books because the DOT would jerk their liscense if they knew how much they were truly working. They usually get crap for pay and are expected to meet crazy deadlines. If it weren't for the hardworking truck drivers out there, most of the things you rely on for day to day living would not be in your possession. There wouldn't be meat in the grocery stores because there would be no one to transport it from the farm to the auction and from the acution to the slaughter house and from the slaughter house to the grocery store. There would be no one to trasnport the materials used to make bread, cereal and other processed foods. People these days are so nieve to what these drivers contribute. As with any profession there are bad apples in the bunch that make it hard for the good ones. Do you know how rare it is for an OTR truck driver to take a sick day. If they aren't there the load doesn't get delivered. Vacations are few and far between. My dad was a truck driver who hauled cattle for the same company for over 10 years and took off 6 times in those 10 years. Once for my sisters high school graduation, once for my high school graduation, once for my sisters wedding, once for my sisters college graduation, once for my wedding and when my grandfather passed away. They fired him because he complained that he needed more time off whey they would only allow him 3 days to deal with his fathers death and to bury him. 10 years of being gone for weeks at a time pushing himself beyond the limit and they can't give him time to mourn his father's death. I have nothing but respect for the men and women who drive the rigs that keep our country fed, clothed and functioning!!

Blow me sounds like the dumb a** on welfare. I OWN my home and work full time. Either say something useful or shut up. You sound like somebody who has been scammed yourself. You also sound like you are venting because your wife won't listen to your stupid s*** anymore. I bet you are just a factory rat who is still pi**ed off about Electrolux leaving. Like I said before, GET OVER IT AND MOVE ON!! I just forgot you are too uneducated to do that. YOU LOSE A****OLE!!!

Firts off I would like to send my deepest sympathy to ALL the hard workin truckers out there who ran into the misfortune of running into Becky LaCompte. But, I am eager to let all of you know that she has be found and the detectives are investigating as I am typing this on here....unfortunately she got involved with my ex-husband and was told several promising things that just didnt add up to me....so,therefore I furthered my own lil investgate on her.and I notified the Greenville Police Dept..Hopefully you hard workin gentleman can rest now

Oh and my dad has been truck driving for 23 yrs and he may have got scammed by this woman but she just made promises of a buncha of tools and a new pickup and a diesel and 70000 dollars if you dont know the situation of these truckers then keep your mouth shut!!!! I am 17 yrs old and I ser what it is doing to my dad.. He is killing himself to keep food in our house just for me! And FYI he hasn't taken but one day off and that was see me be born! So shit your mouth to those ppl who talk crap! You dont know the hard troubles that truckers have and I bet all the ones that fell for this scam were in the same boat as my dad! Its not greed its to make sure their kids have a living!!!! Can you understand that? No you just look at your own GREED! Truckers have it harder than you think... Try considering that next time you wanna open your mouth bout supposedly "dumb" truckers!!!!!!!
