    Thanks brother, I did ltl for Dayton for about 6 months, shitty hours, lack of hours. And they kept putting me on a straight truck with a lift gate which means you work your ass off physically, no thanks. I'll find something eventually, or I'll just give it right back to my boss and drive her insane. I guarantee I can be a bigger asshole then her. She's been blowing up my phone all day over nothing, the are you there yet crap. I'm sick of this shit.

    That sucks. Sometimes I have to pull a long week, I get it, it's part of the job. You seem to have to do that waaayyy to much.

    I prefer straight trucks, but what are you hauling. Looks heavy.

    Start pulling over every time she calls. Make sure she knows it, too. "It's too distracting to talk on the phone, even hands free, and it's a safety issue. I have to pull over when you call." Put the delays squarely in her lap. When she bucks, and she will, go over her head in a very professional email describing your safety concerns and the delays being caused by frivolous calls from your supervisor. One of two things will happen:
    1. Her boss will yank her leash.
    2. They'll fire you and you can tag them for unemployment while you go find a better company.

    Well it's Monday. 4 days this week, we don't get Friday off like every other company we deal with. But I guess I'll take the 4 days and enjoy Thanksgiving with my family.
    Be safe drivers.
