Latter someone told me I should have used my trailer brake handle to do some of the initial braking to prevent the skid,
I start using it all the time, even when I didn’t need it, I noticed the trailer tires had started to wear with chunks
across the thread of the tire, but I was still too dull to realize what was causing it.
One day I met a young
man, interesting to me he was a young black man from Canada, which in my complete ignorance, I didn’t know existed;
I think I can get away with saying that. Anyway he told me exactly what I was doing to cause it “over using the trailer
brake”, I was astonished. I had to admit to him that’s exactly what I had been doing. He went on to tell me he
owned his truck and was least on for now, but he too was planning to get his own Authority. I couldn’t believe it, I
thought I was the only one in the world that had gotten their Authority in only two and a half short years I ask the man how
long he had been trucking, and he said six months.
I was floored by his response and asked “how
do you know so much!!!” he replied “I am a “Student of the Business”. The attitude and action was
clearly evident that this guy was on a whole different level than most truckers. I knew he would be successful, all things
the same, short of demise; “the guy was well on his way”. These are his words, I give them to you, become
“A Student of the Business”!
