Quoting Layla-and-Faith:" Yes, I think they are beyond gross looking but everyone I know has some, I don't think anything less of them as people. I just personally think tattoos are ugly looking."



To each their own, but I don't think they fall under the categories of "gross" & "nasty" for people who say they don't like them. I have 1 tattoo & plan on many more. I think body art is beautiful. There is some body art where it makes me :?: why they got it because to me some of them look so hideous or poorly done.

Quoting Rumpelstiltskin:" it can be a great job... but truckers are gone alot. My dad used to take me with him as a kid, some of my best memories of my dad are of us trucking through the US! :D haha"


Is it hard having them away for so long? How long are they gone?

Quoting Rumpelstiltskin:" Depends on where they work.... My dad was gone for weeks at a time and home for a few days with one ... [snip!] ... during the week but home every weekend. My dad was in the military before he was a trucker, so my mom was kinda used to it. "


I think I would get used to it. I don't need my SO around all the time and the money would be good.

shit pay. never around. they said he would be home every other weeks. I saw him ever 4 months. I was pregnant and had a toddler. and the pay, the pay was so shitty. they make it sound like it will be good, but nope. the amount you pay, and the deductions they take. it just was not worth it.

The big freight companies is where its at. My SO is a 'road' driver for FedEx. He only goes terminal to terminal and comes home every night. He started as a dock worker and worked his way up.



Can't go wrong with the railroad either. My benefits are incredible.

DH wants to try to get in with fedex. he has his cdl, and he feels like he's wasting it.

Definitely have him apply. I know you start at the bottom but being that he already has his CDL they may float him up quicker. I always joke that FedEx is his girlfriend and I'm the mistress. Mostly because us both being in the transportation industry means we don't see much of eachother. But even so, I miss him, I'm excited to see him and it makes the time we have together valuable. We've always said we would sell our souls young, save like crazy and be set. I have until I'm 60. 34 more years.
