Let me tell you just exactly what it is that I do!
When I wake up I usually make some coffee and check my e-mail. Then I spend some time with the kids and watch the news or whatever is on T.V. for a while. My wife will make something for us to eat and when we are done I usually jump in the shower and get ready for work. I spend between 12 and 15 hours at home every day. I live only minutes away from my terminal so I don’t waste and extra time driving. I do enough of this at work.
When I get to work I grab my bills (manifest), sign out, hook up and go! That’s it. I call my friends (Other truck drivers) and find out about traffic up ahead of me. I then put on the Howard Stern Show and listen to help kill the time. The show is 4 1/2 to 5 Hours long. I also listen to Music, CNN and Fox news shows. I will talk to my wife and other friends throughout my day. I kind of switch back and forth from music, the phone, C.B. radio, Stern Show, and news until I’m home.
I make over 52 cents a mile and drive between 500 and 600 miles a shift ending up at home every day. The way I see it, I’m getting paid to listen to the Howard Stern Show and the O’Rielly Factor as well as talk to my friends and family on the phone. I smoke (Trying to quit) when I want to and I eat when I want to. Where else can a guy work where it’s ok to take a nap if you get tired????
I believe that this has got to be the best blue collar job for the money period. Someone please e-mail me a better blue collar job description with less work and more wages if you can. I will be waiting to hear about it. I wasted 14 years of my life working a stressful job that I hated in a casino in Las Vegas for almost a third of the wages. Had I known about jobs like mine I would have been doing it a long time ago. Better late than never though, right?
I was hired with only three months experience at the company I work for and many said they would not hire me. I did not listen to these negative people and I was hired. I then started to convince many of my Las Vegas friends to jump ship and come do what I was doing. After explaining what to do a few times to my friends I got tired and wrote it down. Then I decided to share my story with anyone interested in doing a job like mine, showing other people with ambition and determination how to do what I did.
