  • Wife says "glad you only work part time"
  • Wife used to work for the same company that I work for,I helped get her the job and they made her my boss, but that is another story.I went back to work last month on a part time basis, off mon, tue and wed.so last week 1st day I worked 15 hours, 2nd day 17 hours, 3rd day 14 hours, but on the 4th day they took it easy on me I only worked 10 hours. Mon.1st day off slept 16 hours tue. 2nd day off they called me in for 12 hours,wed.3rd.day off sat around the house and did nothing except get taxes ready for accountant. Yesterday back to work,17 1/2 hours.Wife isn't happy, says you aren't even in the busy part of the year yet, what are you you going to do then, work 23 1/2 hours a day? Think maybe I need to rethink this,I hate retirement and I love the job I do (40) plus years at it. Thanks for letting me vent, God Bless, Beth and Allen.

  • Go back to school. They are teaching a new word these days. It is the word "NO", and the use of it works wonders.

  • I work at a place with rigs pulling in and out 24/7. One morning a rig pulled in and shortly after that a coroner showed up. Consider your choices wisely. Desk duty or a shorter route might be in order. I can certainly appreciate the esprit de corps. I use to have it. A new manager showed up and now I appreciate the next 15 months and about 21 days. Call me early out. Maybe then I might look for something to make me happy again. Then again. . .

  • It's not just me they're doing it to, my buddy is 72 they work him 15to16 hours a day they rent him a room at the motel 1/4 mile from the terminal so he doesn't have to drive 60 miles round trip home. They can't depend on the younger people, they are so short handed it is unbelievable. we are the largest bulk petroleum transporter on the east coast, and they can't find enough qualified drivers. It is not that hard to make 100k a year at this job but finding the drivers that are willing to put in the effort is next to impossible. god Bless, Beth and Allen.

  • How can you put those hours down in your log book and not have problems in a DOT road check? Maybe the guys in your state look the other way!
