    Those low pay checks reflect the advance he took last week. If he does not stop taking advances he will never see a full check.

    And honestly, most of us can live out here on less than $200 per week - unless we are only eating expensive truck stop food. I know that I spend far less than 30 bucks a day on food.

    From a what the word is, most are fully updated on technology. Have been told that when a driver said he had no cash, she said it was OK, she could take cards, held up an iphone with a card scanner plugged into it.

    You would be wise to never take an advance and stay away from ATM.
    I use a credit card to pay for everything, than pay it off every week.

    LOL. Clearly he is cheating on you with lot lizards. Better get checked.. Or even better.. Get a job and make your own money to worry about.. If I found out my significant other was posting my business on the internet she would probably end up as a lot lizard. Ironically?

    Regarding the money amounts if you spent about 40 dollars a day on three proper meals at Petro (Out of the kids menu, closer to 60 for the big stuff like 12 dollar steak and chicken dinner...) You already will be at 200 plus in food.

    I used to pay 200 on tolls in the North east some days cold cash (Pre computer, preinternet, precell and actually Pre Transponder passes etc used today) the reciepts are turned in and are reimbursed to me in about 10 to 14 days with the second to then payroll. If I ran the pike and Ohio Pike etc that's already 150 in my time. Twice that now I imagine. I was strictly cash on everything. Lumpers? 60 to 120 a trailer load depending on what's in it. Cash.
