    my recommendation, stop being a creeper and looking through their windows ;). Depression hit you hard after the 3rd day because you came to the realization that it's harder than you thought. Learning a new area and fighting a sucky load on the back of the truck will make you feel miserable, it will frustrate any one, and that frustration turns to sadness or a feeling of being beat down about the time the sun goes down.

    Also, after day 8, you kind of go numb and forget you have a family.

    I have to ask, a cover driver. Is that when someone is on vacation or ill. And what button on the road do you hit to get that job.

    I'm a helper. Earliest I've been off is 9 or 930 p.m. Sometimes 11. I'm sure you're being paid more than me...I have family at home too. In two weeks I'll be unemployed.

    I don't think you have it too bad.
