    The old saying goes like this: Call or fold!
    If you put that blowhole under your nose out there then PROVE IT there Iron!
    I posted MINE as a company driver but you won't as all you are is a blow hole hot air producer!
    PROVE IT DRIVER! You can't because we all know what you've been sprouting is as Col Potter puts it "HORSE HOCKEY!" You aren't worried about the IRS or privacy as you've been in and out of the forum typing bull that won't even float in dirty water!

    All you have to do to get your respect back that you haven't ever had anyway is prove it! Just make a copy of that 1099 or that last pay statement of last year or even the one you just got. Mark out the vital information and scan it and post it and we'll get off your silly arse!
    Either he enjoys being reduced to the level of a recruiter in here or he's a glutton for punishment! Run your mouth and you'll be called out even on the CB but we ALL knows what happens there! Ones happy he's scared and the other is glad of it! Always a no show when called out as they can't show the proof! He's scared we called him out thinking we don't do that and it's way to easy to think you have an arse on the internet!
    Unlike me I ain't afraid! My picture is right out there for the world to see! And me a lowly old company driver proving you ain't making crapola! That's gotta hurt doesn't it Iron or should we change that handle to Aluminum pony? It fits better!

    Aww... WAAAHHH!

    As long as I'm postive on the bottom line, that's all I need. So...

    SHOVE IT!


    And I could care less what YOU think. None of you work for Prime... so all you are doing is talking out of your a%% about what you don't know about. And what I reveal about myself, including my finances is up to me... isn't it?

    Gross Revenue: $1.628/mi
    Total Operating Expenses: $1.128/mi

    Now according to all of you #######es - that's supposed to be the other way around, and I'm supposed to be bankrupt. It isn't, and I'm not. Think you can do the rest of the math???

    That's a real snappy comeback there Alumniumn Pony!
    Little BOY all you have to do to get us off your silly arse is PROVE IT!
    You can't, so you go hide again!
    Man up there, snappy, prove it! Make MY W-2 look bad and it's ONLY a mere 25 1/2 weeks WITH home time EVERY week Thursday and Friday, out Saturday at 9am!

    You can't so you just come in here with a "snappy" come back and we all laugh at you!

    You get so hateful when you are called out ...

    Why is that !!!!

    Just show your cards and be done with it

    I hate to say it but I don't believe your figures u posted

    1.62 gross
    1.12 cost

    That's 0.50

    I think you are some where closer to

    0.38 -0.42 at best

    If I was able to pull down that kind of average revenue, I wouldn't have lost my ##### over there. My average as of end of June for 2010 was $1.08/mile including FSC. You've either got the most awesome FM ever to have been in this business or you are lying.

    I'm with the others on this. Prove it.

    Since I've been back with Swift, my average including FSC is $1.25/mile and my fixed costs are about half. And it's consistent. I never have to worry about carrying a 50cpm load...even though, I admit, I gave up the potential for the rare $2.50/mile load...that I had to sit around and wait for two days before the shipper loaded. Gotta love Excel.

    I wish he would just admit his numbers are inflated

    I net any where from
    0.70-0.85

    With no

    Truck payment
    No plate ( paid for this yr )

    For him to be at 0.50 net profit is inflated for sure

    You bring this on yourself. Anyone who ever speaks negative of prime you go flying off the handle like someone offended your mama. Like I said I don't care what you make. I have not asked you to post your numbers. Others have. That is why I think it is so funny. You don't want people asking to prove it then quit bragging about " making money hand over fist" Boat load of money or whatever phrase you keep bragging about. You keep saying taking home a grand a week. As I said I did that to. Was a company driver. Out 5 days. Home on weekends. Not out 4-5 weeks and home a few days.

    Taking home a grand a week for a L/O is nothing to brag about. I was called out when I said I made what I did by a maverick newbie who was fired. I could have said hey your not the IRS. Or that is personal. If it was so personal why would I say what I made? I did not have to prove anything. I just chose to shut him up by showing him proof. Then he tried to say it was fuel bonus included. I reminded him that fuel bonuses were on separate qual comms not weekly bank deposits. In fact I made 100 bucks more a week than what was showed because I always took out a 100 bucks a week when I fueled and that was always deducted before my deposit.

    Here is the key. I don't care what you do, but if you want to keep guys from asking you to prove it, then quit shooting off at the mouth at what you cough, hmm, cough " MAKE". Your problem is you. You keep defending prime and taking offense to what people say about them, then you retort with the making too much money here crap. When are you going to wisen up and figure out that you are your own problem? Quit bragging about your thick wallet and just maybe some of these guys will lighten up. Dang, I will be a monkey's uncle. I just had a thought. The problem with that feller is everywhere he goes he takes himself with him.....:biggrin_2556:

    you guys can play "keyboard tough guys" all you want. Your all sounding like a bunch of bullies.

    For almost 3 years Ironpony has been commenting on Prime's Lease deal... the whole time being criticized because until recently he was a Company Driver.

    Well now he is a Lease Operator. But you guys arent satisfied.

    So what if you posted your W-2. Bully for you. Excuses aside, he doesnt have to post or prove anything.

    I have 3 guys I talk to regularly that say they are doing well. They seem to be home at least once a month... They seem happy... Im not a forensic accountant and I haven examined their books, so I have to take their word for it... All of these individuals have been a Prime longer than myself... so if things really suck, why are they still around?

    One guy says he has a boatload of cash and is looking to buy a truck and get into expediting... I dont know much about the expediting business, nor do I care as I am happy at what I am doing... But I wish him well.

    I dont know why some people do well, and others dont... My current theory is that its all in who you have for a dispatcher and how well you work with them. Certain dispatcher names seem to pop up everytime I hear someone claiming to do well...

    Your right he doesn't have to post. Like I said he brings it on himself. He brags about the money, but gets offended when he is called out... then all of a sudden his numbers are personal... You mess with the bull; you get the horns... or maybe it has something to do with the other end of the bull? I don't know, but there is a lot of bull with his posts....

    This is kind of a false statement.

    "...nice to know what I can before hand."

    "...nice to know what I should have known before hand."

    That rings a little more true after your aborted attempt to get into trucking at Prime.

    BTW... your attitude is really starting to shine through... I suspect your problem with your instructor might not have been entirely his fault.

    Keep up the research... you obviously havent done enough when you make these kinds of statements...

    God speed, I can only hope you get into a truck quick enough to be rolling down the road with 45k in the box this winter...
