I used to work as a truck driver for a large excavating company. The job offer came my way shortly before our wedding in 2009 and since the pay and benefits were good – I jumped on it.
For the first few months I was there, things were pretty good. I was excited about making more money than I ever had in my life, had lots of responsibility and was generally happy.
After about two years at the company, my job changed from Crane/Lowbed operator, to dump truck driver.
Now if you’ve never had the pleasure of driving a dump truck, here’s what it’s like. Get up and walk to your mailbox, turn around and come back into your house. Do that for eight straight hours and that’s more or less what it’s like driving a dump truck.
