The trucking industry–much like every big industry, I’m led to believe–is a very odd thing. Nobody seems to know what’s going on. Ever. As an imperfect soul, myself, I can’t demand perfection from anyone, but I can at least ask for consistency. I’ve only been a truck driver for two or so months, and I have yet to hear the same set of rules, policies, or procedures from any two people. This gives me quite the appreciation for college. The structure of college is such that, unless you speak with someone from financial aid, everything seems to be fairly organized and transparent.
Not the trucking industry, though, it seems to be the very epitome of “robbing Peter to pay Paul.”
But I’ll quit bitching for the moment.
