I feel greedy... but I truly do feel horrified.

by Hailey
(Colorado )

My fiancé is 24 and I'm 22. We have 2 dogs, an apartment, a car and a nice life. Well, during his job searches he decided he would want to be a trick driver. And we were told it would be 17 day training... and then he would come home and do local runs.


I'm mortified by the reviews of this specific company online. I don't want him to have to be forced to work OTR for 9 months... and he doesn't want that either. I feel so selfish because I have cried all day today..

I love him so much and don't want to have to face this world alone. I want him home every night so I can assure his health, his rest, his happiness...
