(Ottawa ontario canada)
Hello. I am a long haul truck driver.
Been driving for almost 3 yrs.
I have a wife,just had 6 yr anniversary. Have 2 kids. One 8 yr old daughter and 4 yr old son.
I work 70 hr. 36hr reset. I am the only source of income. I leave Sundays return Fridays.
My mind set is this… I am sad when I leave for work but also happy. Most weekends are me raising my voice because my children are making too much noise. My wife does not work, stay at home mom. House is never clean. Laundry is all over the house. Clean mixed with dirty. Kids rooms are never clean. Never have any money.
I normally pull 900 a week. (Canadian)
Am I a complete ass for thinking there is no reason for a dirty house etc…?
Money issue is something to work on..i get that. But it’s always “we will catch up next week”
I am just easily annoyed now. I understand being on the road makes drivers antisocial.
Just don’t know what to do. I’ve hinted that the house could have gotten clean… pick 1 room a day.
We don’t pay for water use…laundry can be done..but it’s not. I’m going fn nuts.
I just don’t say anything cause I don’t want to hurt any feelings.
