Ouch, at least you didn't totally destroy the box...
@ NFO. Stock photo off Google. I took the whole roof off.
I was going to ask if you stopped there and took a photo before leaving the scene. It didn't make sense to me. Drive carefully. :)
"Think I used up all my brownie points with the boss and owners. Since they didn't immediately fire me, there is hope".You're are a lucky man. Any company I ever drove for would fire a driver that stuffed a bridge or a low anything immediately.I think you have one thing on your side. From what I read in many of the trucking musing I read, there is a need for more drivers.At my last licence renewal, I gave up my Class A. Couldn't justify the high price of it and in Florida you can't renew your A license on-line.
@ Scotty. For me, it is a part time job to supplement my income. If it goes away, have other things I can do (Property Inspections, repo cars). These people are among the most decent I've every worked for so hope I can continue.
For All. Axe has fallen - fired. Not surprised, not angry. The accident was all on me. Life goes on.
Sorry to hear that, WSF. Better stick to flat beds from here on in.....;-)
@ Scotty. Probably no more trucks. My knees are getting worse. Turned down a job today driving a wrecker for that reason.
