    A lane I'm looking at... Say it ain't so? What gives? Indiana to Kentucky. Flatbed.

    Oh who cares.

    Real men don't care what the broker makes. Real men make what they want to make and forget about the rest.

    Real men laugh at transparency and whatever the broker makes.

    So what if he sits in his pajamas and pokes the old lady all day and he makes three times as much as you with all of your expenses and repairs and insurance and maintenance and whatnot.

    Real men will just tell you you suck at negotiating. That's your fault! You're just not a real man!

    Real men love to see the broker make 3,4,5 times what they're making....

    Ok...

    The real men love to work hard for $700 and they love to have the broker make 1700... or 2500....or ???

    Real men love for that to go on all the time everyday day and night all year long.

    How dare you want to know what the broker makes!

    You mean you actually think there could possibly be something wrong if the broker makes five times as much as you?

    How dare you!

    You need to learn how to be a real man, learn how to negotiate like a real man...

    So after all of your real man negotiating the broker makes five times as much as you.

    Learn how to be a real man and see no problem with that...

    Ok...

    I'm curious as to where these numbers are coming from. That doesn't even remotely track, in eithet direction, with what I typically see on IN-KY lanes.

    Now there you go confusing the issue with facts.

    I concur. Not even in the ballpark of reality. Has there been one occasion where maybe a shipper paid $6 per mile into a headhaul market? Probably. Is it the norm, or even a frequent occurrence? Definitely not.
