    I heard going through Texas last week to p/u a load in LA that freight in Texas was nonexistent which is rare because the freight in there used to be always( heavy) but always able to pick up same day so that maybe the issue wrong place. But hope it works out for ya it's a good company hang in there. BE SAFE

    1040 miles with fuel and truck note sounds like a Negitive pay check but maybe I'm wrong

    Actually 1040 +714 is 1754 both my loads were heavy as usual so ill probably get a 300.00 . How much fuel i use from texas to kansas is critical. Its a shame you gotta live like that tho. But like most will say some just arent cut out to lease when you fail, i find that hilarious when they say that . Ill make the best of it . Crossing my fingers hope they give me a saturday delivery and i get another load Qtrly fuel taxes come out of this paycheck for payroll on the 27th

    I hope you get more miles man I really do .. Looks like you've either been in the wrong place at the wrong time for the past 2-3 weeks or so .. Or ACT is developing a trend .??

    You use the word hopefully a lot. The handwriting is on the wall. Get out of a bad situation before it ruins you. If they are not responding to your financial needs, it is clear they don't give a #### about you. Go find a good company that suits your needs.
     
    US MARINE Thanks this.
