Name: Rich Ahearn

Job: Company Driver

Years at Crete: 10


Hi, my name is Rich Ahearn, Crete driver. Been a Crete driver for about 10 years now and I used to be an attorney, I spent about 10 years getting my bachelor’s degree, going to law school and I am studying for the bar and then practicing law, in fact I even got licensed in Michigan and Wisconsin, so I had to pass the bar twice and I was pretty good, I was a pretty good later for about four years, but I didn’t like it. I don’t know if you know what a lower does, but a lower argues, and he argues every day, he argues with an opposing counsel, he argues with the court, he argues with his clients, he argues with everybody day in and day out, and that can kind of be a drag. So I wasn’t enjoying life very much and I thought back to when I did enjoy my life, and it was way back in the early 80’s when I was a truck driver and I liked that, out on my own, doing my own thing, don’t have anyone watching over me. I don’t have anybody to answer too. Well you know I gotta get the load down and on time and all that, but I’m pretty much on my own and that’s the way I like it. anyway, been with Crete for about 10 years now, and they’re a good company, I like them and I’m about to retire in three years, so I’m just going to ride it out. Anyway, that’s my Crete story. alright, bye bye.
