cr-england William DeckerWalter HoodMTA Truck Driving Schoolhttps://www.linkedin.com/pub/christie-wakeland/40/195/759 CR England sent me on the 3 week training drive and told me to buzz off after. Salt Lake City Utah
In 2001, after I bought a transmission for a taxi for $2000 and drove it 100,000 miles, OCTAP told me my 1988 Cadillac was too old so I quit work at California Yellow Cab. Soon after, Carlos Lugo from MTA Trucking called me because California Job Service was helping me find work. Carlos sent me to Salt Lake City and the MTA in Salt Lake were predominantly Mormon Morons so I had to go to El Paso, Texas MTA to get my CDL. I passed the exams and they charged me $10,000.00 (refundable if I did not obtain employment).
Walter Hood was my first driving instructor and he had a gripe for Chistie Wakeland (she was the person in the office that I was assigned to see while I was in Texas). His chintzy seat got stuck and he blamed me for that and, sitting in his truck made me physically ill. It said, "The Parlor" on it and the filth in his cab caused congestion in my sinus and ensuing pressure in my ears. The dude was unfriendly and he said, "you are going to hurt my baby. I will make it ill when I see my wife and it so I don't like you". I hadn't been ill in years and thought he could get it that he was to blame. I had been going to the World Gym daily since January of 1995 and I understood that the Instructors were not supposed to discuss their familys anyway.
Walter and Christie arranged for me to ride then, with William Decker. Bill at one point shut his reefer engine off and caused his entire load of frozen food to melt. He said he forgot to put Rotella Oil in it and it stalled, when we parked one night, due to a Company restriction requiring students/teachers to stay off the road from 2-4 AM. Bill was really a jerk and I observed other truck drivers asking him, "why he was special" and had to park in front of them. At one point Bill's reefer door flew open and he couldn't get around a corner at an intersection where he blocked traffic in four directions. He woke me up and we pried the door so he could continue but he was mean and onery. At a railroad crossing on a dirt highway, he backed his truck over the tracks.
C.R England didn't hire me and their complaint was I couldn't shift properly. Bill had a bunk clutch and didn't even use it to shift. He was otherwise totally unreasonable because one night he went to sleep after telling me to get off at a certain intersection. When I got to the intersection, it was under construction, so I drove past it and woke him up. He talked to me like I was trying to kid him. When we were about 2000 miles from SLC, UT he tried to start a fight with me and gave me the impression I would have to walk home from there.
Bill told me he was inexperienced with students and the MTA told me the Mormons in Salt Lake were, "hard to get". The MTA in Florida (Carlos Lugo) apologized and got my license for me but left me stranded. I attended the University of Utah from 2004 until 2008 because my step-parent that lives in Salt Lake is drunken and had me arrested. The Judge I saw then told me most of the people in his court were helpless and advised me to attend school regardless of the cost. I borrowed $40,000.00 from the US Department of Education and had to leave Salt Lake in 2008 because the process of aging caused me to be extremely cold.
I had to go from Laguna Hills to Salt Lake to get the truck and they England Trucking Company told me to get screwed. MTA vanished from sight and for years banks were hounding me for the $10,000.00 it cost to get a CDL. When I grew up in Salt Lake I never heard that God was a dog and I suspect that is the problem. Bill wanted to go to church and I don't really enjoy the LDS.
