Trucker: Lost my job @ 61
Drove a semi-truck all my life, worked for fedex freight for 18 years.
Can you imagine for 34 years never had an accident and then had 3 incidents in 1 year, all minor.. cracked bumper (snow bank), took down an overhead wire (phone line that was too low) & then a cracked faring bracket, made a U-turn too tight.
Well they fired me for this... but it stinks at 61, now 62.. never thought I'd be in this spot, i really liked my job.
I know i'm whining but who can start over at 62??
Nobody in the trucking industry, my question is what do we do now??
