While I wait for the future you can read about my past.
If people make promises to you do not expect that they will keep there word, than you never will be disappointed. If people ask you to lent them some money do not expect it back. Therefore its better to give it away and you will not be disappointed.
Its just so how people will treat you it will come back at them and also how you treat the people around you it will get back to you the same way.
What comes around goes around.
If you keep these things in mind and look back in your past than ask yourself this question, who is your real friend? You will find out that it is someone that you did not aspect to be you friend that is your friend.
So it is on the street, what happens on the street stays on the street is my opinion. But there always people that think in another way. Well that is there choice and not mine. It will come back at them sooner or later.
So think about it before you make a promise if you can keep it or otherwise don;t make a promise. A promise is for some people a signal of trust and that is what it should be and every time you break a promise the trust in you will fade away.
Therefore is better that you trust no one only yourself and you will live a happy life…….

There is no recession in Germany. The economy grows more than three percent (3%) per year. There is a driver shortage. Meanwhile, this shortage so severe that the fares begins to float. At a meeting of shippers and carriers was determined that the driver shortage even the main cause of increased freight rates.
More than 7,000 drivers can be so put to work in Germany. However it is an open secret that Germany pays less than the Dutch or the Danish. The entry of new young drivers is minimal. The Germans do not really know what to do with this. So advertise with transport schemes where to take new drivers so they are still at home every night. There are also companies that give new drivers a fully loaded truck.
The German shippers are afraid that if Internet sales are increasingly forcing trucks and vans in the residential area for unloading, there is no one more willing to do the work. So there is one solution the salary rates has to go up and the quality has to improve…….
Which driver wants to work in a company that mostly consists of cheap drivers from the east or the Philippines. Then there is also the problem of the many weekends away. Look at the company I work for. Most drivers find work beautifully but have a problem with the fact that they sometimes two weekends in one piece away. Could it also be that the mentality of the German driver a little different than the Danish or Dutch. German drivers are just the way that rules are rules, and if I get 40 hours paid but why would I make 41 hours. The Dutch drivers are different in this. Once a car is loaded they do everything to get it empty again as soon as possible. Now I do not say that all German drivers are so but I know there are many of them that act this way…… Rules are rules and which you do not violate. Just look at the overtaking bans or federal roads, who is overtaking 60 km/h propelled German driver? Not the Germans, but the foreigners rightly or not but there is a difference, big difference in mentality.
Who knows the answer may say, but one thing is certain here is the last word not been said about.
This picture is not related to my post but I simply love the picture.

It was a bit of a strange Friday. Unloading 3 customers and loading before 2 PM in Kirchschlag. First client I was at 5:45 am I called the client the day before and asked him that I could unload so early, lucky that was no problem. The second was a farmer and he would wait for me between 7 and 8 am. When I came there the coffee was ready and the unloading went swift. The 3 client was no problem with unloading but to get there…….. 120 km on local roads that took me almost 3 hours to get it done. Later this week I will post a video from the 120 km of local roads in Austria. At 11 am I was empty and at 13.53 I was in Kirchschlag to load. Just on time or 7 minutes early as you like. Now I am loaded for Sweden with 3 clients. A nice trip I think. I will take the Scandlines ferry from Puttgarden to Rodby and Helsingor to Helsingborg. My aim is to be empty on Tuesday afternoon but we will see…. Here is a picture of my load.
