Truck driving is very dangerous? Didn't know that!
Report as
Look at it this way...every day I am one accident away from death.
Report as
I just looked up the most dangerous jobs in the world, and yep, I see now.
Report as
I'll add a bit of personal history to that...I've been in two major accidents in a rig. The last one I probably should have died, but a mysterious person managed to pull me from the wreckage before it all went up in flames (that person disappeared after...no idea who it was).
I was pulled from the cab of my truck once to be robbed and Lord only knows what else, but a cop showed up at just the right time.
Just this morning while traveling down Black Mountain with a 37,000 lb load in the trailer, working to keep my speed slow enough to navigate the bad curves while on a significant downgrade...a "person" in a tiny car passed me and came over in front of me with less than 4 feet in between us...AND GOT ON HIS BRAKES!!! I smoked my brakes to try to keep from crushing him and came very close to jackknifing and crashing right there. None of the above incidents were my fault in any way (and I have accident reports to prove it)...so yeah...my job is dangerous.
Report as
That is insane! I commend you for continuing to work as a trucker then, and I hope you stay safe :)

I can appreciate your answer but I'm proof that it's a lot more dangerous driving a big rig than waiting on the next psycho robber to come walking into your store for a measly $24 in your drawer. I'm surrounded by psycho drivers and ANY one of them can do just about anything to change my day from great to the worst day ever. And nobody goes home when that happens.

Yes, always running across the street in traffic, hanging on the back of the truck getting rear-ended, etc. I used to be a garbage man and that statistic was actually used in our training.

Also, being backed over as a helper by your driver who constantly backs up, being crushed by hoppers and hydraulic presses and landfill machinery because of getting in a hurry and being foolish. I was personally nearly killed on numerous occasions while working that job.

Helpful (3) Fun (2) Thanks for voting Comments (6)

nah. the kids aren't bad. It is the parents or lack of parents. I have seen some horrid parents...and I use the term loosely...Never met a kid that didn't want a real parent....
Report as
@dawnbright-you are SO RIGHT!! I would have stayed a teacher if it weren't those crazy parents. They were NUTS !
Report as
It's not all the parents fault. Kids know what's right or wrong, they don't need someone telling them. Kids make there own decisions
Report as
True. But I have seen parents Make the kids do things that was unbelievable. When a kid is under the parents roof they are subject to the parents wishes. And the parents push the kids to do inappropriate things. And woe is the kid who doesn't and has to go home with them. Trust me. It is the parents 99% of the time
Report as
I don't think so. Where I'm at parents do make kids do inappropriate things (well maybe a few do but not many) and theirs kids that have good parents but still do bad
Report as
@devils spit-hi. I taught elementary school in a poverty area where the parents came ro school drunk and asking me for $20 dollars to buy crack. I should have clarified that. I don't have experience with middle or high school except with what ai dealt with with my own children and yes you are right, some kids really make it hard for everyone involved . But the children I taught were not only young, they were special needs and soooo sweet and cute . They looked like the other xholdren bit had dyslexia or severe learning problems. With the parents they had, they didn't have a chance. I didn't get to follow up on them later in their school years, but I did read in the paler and saw on the news that one kill 3 people , 4 have drowned in the Arkansas River, one killed a guy who looked at his girlfriend, one got shot in the back and permanently paralyzed,
most quit school because they couldn't keep up and the teachers were busy
with the regular students to pass state tests. I did have to testify in court for the one that murdered 3 people and since he said he'd come back to get me when he gets out in 6 years, I can't put my photo up here on Ask. You both bring up great points and this is why I like this site so much, because I see some good thinkers on here. But sorry for not clarifying these were elementary students with parents who were a MESS, but I enjoyed every moment. Excuse misspellings. Real tired. :-)

That would probably be a soldier in Afghanistan as the president is pulling funds from important vital government activities as a show to the American people how bad the Republicans are for not agreeing with his spending policies. This president has gone below the line of decency when he denies needed funds and has no problem funding government yippee parties and shopping sprees for his wife and kids.
