I know I posted he got a new job, etc... but a day later the guy took the offer back. MD doesn't count a military CDL, so even though Jeff had a CDL in the military for 10 years, it only shows up he had the civilian one for 1 year. It wasn't the owner, but the supplier, that wanted 3 years experience.
He moves on. He found another car hauler, but he has to get this "TWIC" thing to get on the ports. It's like a clearance. It take 4 weeks, and Jeff is afraid the trouble he got into with the Army might show up. He didn't want to train 4 weeks making very little money and then get declined for the TWIC.
SOOOOOOOOOO now he's looking into bulk food (liquid chocolate, milk, olive oil, sugar... etc). There's 2 companies he's looking into now, but another 2 looking for drivers as well. There's some possible over nights, which I'm ok with. We don't have kids, and I have Hunter to keep me company at nights. He's waiting to hear back, but then he starts talking about doing something else. I'm like WTF PICK SOMETHING!!! We talk about it, and he's really scared the over nights will destroy us. I know it's a fear from his past marriage (the deployments etc). But we talked about it, and he's feeling better about it. He's going to keep pursuing the bulk haul. He's going to call for a follow up today, and get his transcripts from the college they need.
We're going to NC, it's just a matter of having a job when he gets back...
Oh and the company he's with now thinks giving him Thurs night off is enough to drive 10 hours, eat dinner with the kids and drive back. WTF! I want to see them drive 20hrs out of 24 hours then go to work... DRIVING! The only night he's really asking off is Friday night and they won't give it to him. There's also some paycheck issues playing into this, but I think I wrote a big enough novel for now haha.
