T.J. thats pretty rad wolfie. i have to admit i have a ton of respect for big rig truck drivers.

#1. thats a job i could NEVER do. the way you guys back those things into docks with such precision is almost an art form

#2. you have to put up with a lot of assholes on the road.

PaoloSmythe find a job you love, and NEVER work a day of your life again!

kri$han ^ ha, well something's gotta pay for all the fancy new snowboarding equipment, trips and (let's not forget) the bills :P

the goal is to find something that you don't mind doing while being able to make the money you wanna make... if either of those two is off, you need a change.

PaoloSmythe it is a truism that people gladly suffer that, which they do.

T.J. unfortunately its the field i chose. i dont work in a 9-5 industry, for the most part its 24/7. luckily its 9-5 for me most of the time as we have a pretty stable environment.

PaoloSmythe it sounds like, at least two contributors to this thread would benefit from considering....

work to live?

or live to work??

and then effect a change for their better!

i refuse to get embroiled in anything, that i cannot drop like a ball with shit on it!

He just walked out and went home. I haven't done that for nearly 20 years.
I hear ya mike, i think its an IT thing. i'm a sys admin at a manufacturing plant and put in a ton of long hours and weekends and such. i'm sometimes a little envious of the people that just drop everything, no matter what they are in the middle of, at the end of their shift and go home. ah, the joys of being a salaried employee
