Apparently the HR person at the trucking company decided that due to his Asperger’s, The Artist wouldn’t be able to handle being a trucker. So they sent him home Monday.
He’s disappointed, obviously, but he’s still in the game. Before he’d gotten back he was already researching other trucking companies, and getting on trucking forums to chat with truckers about his options. So he’ll keep trying.
All our info is coming secondhand through The Artist, but my feeling is that some HR twat saw that he wasn’t reacting to things the way they would, and decided that he was therefore not capable. Bastages.
