    Once again Deputy resorts to attacks and obfusaction. Your pathetic. Which part of line by line comparison don't you understand?

    What does Willis shaw pay you per mile? Or is it percentage? What kind of fuel discount do they give you? How much fuel surcharge you getting?Without these nuts and bolts figures there is no way to "verify" your claims.

    Your ahead of the game by owning your truck and therefore your so called expenses are very much reduced as compared to these fellas doing a lease purchase where they have to pay 500 to 700 PER WEEK for the truck payment. Of course with a w900 KW i bet your paying through the nose for fuel (every savvy business owner knows an aerodynamic truck has a bigger return on investment than the potential resale value of what your running). But then again many drivers do not care what it costs them so long as they LOOK GOOD. I suspect thats the group you fit into best especially after all the work trick my truck did for you.

    I wonder if your actually setting aside money to replace that truck. I bet your one of these fellas that moonlights at another job to get his insurances (probably through the sherriffs department). I suspect your probably scared to death of an audit thats why you keep things so vague. Thats ok I have encountered many of your ilk. Bullies with a badge and A BIG MOUTH.

    I bet you would just love to try to cuff and stuff me with your "silver bracelets" for having the audacity to challenge your attacks. Well buddy I am not intimidated.

    Get a life and grow up. Oh and best of luck to you in the coming recession (your going to need it).

    I was with LS. My wife wanted me home more so I sold my truck and trailer to Bronc. I tried all this past summer to be a good company slave. It didn't work and by Sept I was back into a O/O position hauling cars. You can see my truck if you click on my trucking pics link.

    Your right Brickman. ;-)
    But I need to say one last thing about his wasted space. lol Once again he speaks of arrogance. He speaks with a lack of knowledge and I'm not making him lok arrogant. He is doing a fine job by himself.

    No jlkklj777, I'm not the type of guy who spends all my money and dont save it, if it is any of your concern. My truck gets about 6.2 mpg's,not much worst then any other truck on the road including your Co truck. I do not idle,waste of fuel and hardon engine. I welcome any audit. Why on earth,after all the repairs that I Myself had done and after the truck being on the show would I want too replace ?? Having no truck payment is nice actually. No I do not moonlight on anothe job, I work on the Sheriff's office to help people. After all God created cops for fireman can have heros. I do not preach about others income,jobs,family or lifestyle. I do not misinform people on the internet,phone,cb orany other means of communication like yourself. I'm vey happy with my truck,my income,my hometime and my position on th Sheriff's Office. NO I'm not a BADGE with a Mouth, at the same time I do not tolerate disrespect while I;m handling a situation on the job. Ido not need to intimidate anyone to do my job thank you very much. You are not chalenging my attacks all your doing is showing everyone that reads this that you a re a know it all,beem there done that frustrated truck driver. No harm to me. I my frien have a life and no trying to tell others about things I dont know about like yourself.t seems that you are a bit imature. I admit I can be a bi imature,it keeps me young!!!! ;-) I have no hard feelings to you. I just do not apreciate anyone trying to put their nose into mine or anybody else's business and trying to act like you know it all about everything.

    You say I attack you? I've answered your little writings on here.If you do not wanna be challenged on your misguided knowledge hen you shouldnt write things on a forum.

    Now to everyone that has read this I do apologize for this little debate on the thought of jlkklj777 knowing everything about everything. As we all can tell he does not know everything.

    So how bout those CHARGERS !!!!!!!

    Brickman you like hauling cars??
    Bronc where is Davis out of ? they flatbed?

    My start in trucking came when I sold my lawn care business (mistake) and bought a 4 car wedge trailer. I did that for 5 months. The first couple months I made money hand over fist, but I also wasted a lot, and when the winter slow down hit I couldn't handle the lack of cash flow.

    I sold the trailer and worked for a few more months for the same company I'm with now. Only then I was an employee. Let me tell you, they are not the same company now they were then. Then they were a new company just feeling their way into trucking, not ready for employees or O/Os. Now they are a respectable up and coming company with plenty of work and adding trucks. Its a father/son operation with another O/O and me. They just added another guy after Jan 1 for a total of 5 trucks now. There is another guy that is wanting to come on as soon as we know if we have enough work.

    Any way for most of the time between when I worked for them before and now I pulled a flatbed. I still miss that. I really enjoyed that. But car hauling has its fun times and not fun times just like every thing else.
