    I've heard that if the company really needs drivers they start pulling them from within before they hire off the street. In my case since I self-disqualified myself in March 2015 my steward told me that I might have a chance 2 go back close 2 a year instead of waiting 4 the contract 2 end. There's no guarantees that it could happen, but @ least I feel better now that I might have hope.

    I regret going back, but mistakes happen so I'm trying not 2 beat myself up 4 it. Don't let opportunities pass U by. If I go 4 it I'm going all the way. I feel like I'm the only 1 who self-disqualified myself. R there some stories where people go back 4 the dumbest reasons?

    We had one guy DQ himself because of his inability to spell "for" "to" "are" and "you"

    At my location self-disqualifying sidelines you for 2 years. 1 year if the company disqualifies you.

    I've heard of people going back to school because they were too dumb.

    He's just trying to show you how foolish you look by using numbers instead of words. Ive never understood why people do that. Will you enlighten us why you do it?

    My daughter sent me a text in which she wrote "K" instead of "OK". I jokingly asked her how much time she saved by leaving off the "O". It has become a running joke and we end our texts to one another with "K".

    You're the only one who CAN "self-disqualify" yourself.

    Luckily thanks to your self-disqualification mechanics like me will have a little longer to wait before needing an interpreter to decipher your dvirs.

    I know of someone in my center that disqualified himself, he said the job was too hard on his back. Just don't miss the opportunity the second time man, driving is a great job.
