    One of our other members said once,"To what degree of soul crushing will this load entail."

    That is very accurate.

    There's one lady at an agent in customer service I'm not even allowed to speak to anymore.

    Not because we didn't get along, just the opposite. The boss is afraid she'd take my little fleet, that good customer, and do her own thing.

    That had never even entered my mind. But now he's given me an idea.

    Landstar cares about one thing- money.

    Anything else just ain't true.

    Well get in line, cause I've never worried about what other people think, and I'm not going to start now.

    I see. Ok, well maybe its the ex-medic in me that makes me want to actually HELP people from time to time that has me posting here but I have to wonder, what is YOUR purpose? Do you have this deep inner need to have attention even if the attention is bad? Did your mother not breast feed you as a baby?

    Generally speaking, I honestly dont care what people think of me either, but I dont see a need to post just for the sake of posting. You have 20,000 posts in 5 years. 4000 a year for 5 years. Thats 11 posts a DAY for FIVE years.

    You need help pal. You seriously do.

    Save your response. I wont read it.

    Landstar likes to finance people on a trailer.

    Why?

    Well, trailers are invaluable here.

    For one thing you're gonna pay like $60K for that trailer in the end.

    But moreover, if they sell 50 a year, they just increased their trailer pool by 50, with 0 investment, and made a quarter of million dollars in interest off of the 50.

    They LOVE for people to run the same places because then it's a very predictable business model / outlook, so they can try and get more customers, especially with the 50 trailers they now have available.

    You guys are true schnooks if you think for a second anything done at Landstar doesn't benefit corporate.

    Why are you taking this so personally?

    I thought everyone was entitled to an opinion?

    Cause that's all you really have in this world.

    Oh, and like half my posts are pictures of my cat, so there's that.

    And occasionally, mixed in with cats and sarcastic humor, you share some valuable information.
