    Nah - guy thinks he’s hot doo doo, but he’s barely a cold fart warming up.

    Pretty sure he’s a false flag operative for Schneider.

    It’s a one hour borefest and a trip around his ratty old Peterbilt. Only watch it if you’re suffering from insomnia - it’ll put you out in minutes.

    I went and had a read on earlier posts you’ve made, regarding a truck you were leasing that lost an engine.

    What position are you in currently regarding truck ownership, liquidity etc?

    Not being a douche, but may be able to help you make better choices, depending on your situation.
     
    tommymonza Thanks this.

    Yeah, I don't sleep much, maybe 4 - 6 hrs. a night.
    Your video wouldn't put me to sleep anyway, it's interesting and well done.
    Good, informative information for potential 0/0's and flatbedders.

    Well, honestly, I don't think one is better than the other..... they're just a bit different. @Dave_in_AZ kinda likes to bust peoples balls by telling them to go to Schneider, thereby affirming that Landstar is better because you're not good enough, and for all of us who've followed him long enough, we kinda get the joke. That said, new folks don't get the joke......so, not really helpful, frankly.
    So, in my mind, here's the difference........
    Schneider, if you work hard enough, you'll be fine, but you won't be rich.
    Landstar, If you work hard enough, you'll probably be ok. And if there is that magical day, you'll be rich. And that day does indeed come from time to time.

    The reason I stay with Schneider is because it's easy. I just pick my loads and go. I very, very rarely have to talk to anyone.....I mean less than 3 times a month. The money is good, and I'm quite happy.
    At Landstar, it's about "building relationships" with people who give something less than 2 F'ks about you and you feel quite the same about them.

    I'll take the anonymous hosing. At least this way I don't have to act like I like it.

    Daily, even hourly newbies come here looking for advice and help. A few wannabies are smart enough to ask common sense questions,, listen and appreciate.
    Some members have huge knowledge and experience, so much they walk on water! When these guys offer advice, for free,, why would one argue??? I ask the forum a question and am confident knowing i will get great answers! I feel very fortunate to have acsess to so much great information
