I am astonished by the courtesy and laid back attitude by most Seattle drivers. When I am trying to merge into another lane, I apply my turn signal and 99% of the time, the car behind me takes notice, slows down and allows me to merge.
My first trip took me to Lewiston, Idaho, then back to the yard in Seattle. I have been on trips to Spokane, the local Seattle area and a trip to Bend, Oregon. The first week I averaged a total of 1500 miles, but I get paid by the load and not the mile. What a change! I am actually at home during the week a couple nights and I have the weekends off! I couldn’t ask for much more in a driving job.
Once in awhile, you come across a good job. Just when I was thinking about hanging up my career as a CDL driver, this job came along. I have met the owner of the company and I am quite impressed with his company. With any luck, I’ll have a great job to look forward to in the coming years!
