I really want to know why you don't consider a delivery driver/ truck driver to be a respectable career. What makes it so bad?

My son is an over-the-road truck and has been for 15 years. Consummate professional. I'd say his line of work is pretty important.


Try going without the services of truckers for a couple of weeks. You'll find out just how important they are.

I don't. Tiredtired, you haven't even dealt with schooling yet. Would you really be less proud of a child who is living up to their potential, even if that didn't include an MD, PhD or Esq after their name?

I was proud of my son when he LEFT med school. He wanted it, badly. But after a year of missing out on so many hours with his infant son, he decided his child meant more than his professional dream, and withdrew.
He couldn't be happier with his choice.
