I went on a run with the new guy today , we were driving down the free way and he tries to pass a slow truck on a hill and he misses every gear and comes to a complete stop in the fast lane and then kills the engine and starts rolling BACKWARDS down the hill in the fast lane then dumps the clutch and stalls it again then finally gets it going all the while grinding the shit out of every gear trying to get it over to the shoulder so we can limp up the hill , I am sure that took about 50,000 miles of life out of the truck , I am pretty sure he is too used to driving automatic trucks .

We have flat roads here. I stopped driving concrete trucks in 1991. Almost every load was between 70,000 to 80,000 lbs. When I first started driving early on the transmissions were a split stick, talk about a sore shoulder at the end of the day. Moved on to air shift, mainly spicers 8 or 13 speed. Gradually we got a 5 speed stick with a second stick that was high or low, you only used low off road. Finally, I got an automatic transmission. Life became good, FM radio, cup of coffee and no shifting. I was close to the top in seniority so I got a new truck every year for the last 4 years that I drove.
