    I didn't see the "stupid link" until AFTER it was posted.

    And "you're welcome" for the report, too.

    You're a grown man and didn't see the link.... ???

    .... took me a minute to see it as well.

    I followed suit with the report and did some digging... he's from the Chicago area and that was his only link.

    go out and meet some contractors, ask their opinion. it sounds corny, but a couple years from now when you're looking for a job, they will probablyremember you. that will make you stand out from the faceless applicant and someone may be more willing to give you a shot since you demonstrated that you can set and achieve goals.

    Tried to connect two friends in this trade recently. The employer liked the guy a lot, the guy had a DUI just over 7 years ago (which he actually credits with saving his life as it put him sober) and the employers insurance co would NOT insure the guy at all. There are even self insure programs for commercial vehicle drivers to assist or even self bonding, but none of those paths worked, the insurance company just flat out said no.

    Smile i have an idea

    why don't you get your own vehicle and insure it yourself.....i never had a drinking problem but i used my own truck for many years....loved it , all you have to do is show management a copy of your own ins. policy and you're in....make sure you get decent money for it....

    Don't give up. If you have changed your lifestyle. By the time you get a little experience under your belt your record will be clean. The tough part will be getting experience during this time. I personally know it can be done. Best of luck to you.
