    Good, I can only imagine how many people decided to buy trucks after watching YouTube videos talking about crazy high rates

    As many as it takes to bring used truck market prices to 2019 levels haha. This way, after that tow truck is paid off, you can buy a few used trucks at very reasonable prices. Now that's what i call killing two birds with one stone.

    Words of wisdom from seasoned Veterans that really know the Industry. Too funny. The sooner the better. I wonder what the next craze will be? How to get rich buying at auction? How to get rich living off the grid? How to get rich, buying foreclosures and becoming a Landlord. Easy come easy go. Their too soft for this industry. No staying power. Can’t hack it. Time to cut and run. Cracks me up. The sooner this fluff is gone, the better.

    My Dads twin brother had a saying. "Set in the saddle and saw wood". They were loggers and saw millers so it had some connections.
    Only knew they never seemed to be shot in the ### by how the talk of depression, recession, hard times, etc.. Just went on working their usual way and spending profit wisely. (They had lived in harder times (DOB's 1898) before 12 years old than most folks ever would.)

    I looked up some of them. One guy runs a box truck. A few of them got trucks about a year ago. Reminds me of 2019 when a bunch of the “experts” disappeared from the industry.

    Been home since Monday. After being out 10 days, running 4200 miles, slept for 3 days. Planned on staying home till today. Drs. appointments, Veterinarian appointments. Wife’s hair appointment, all the important stuff is done. Lots of stuff needs to be done around here. Father’s Day is Sunday. Having a BBQ. My cousins in from AZ., driving her to the Airport on Tuesday. By the time I get a cheap Load out of Dodge on Wednesday, I’ll be broke. Lol. But I’ll have some good memories.

    All the same, and nobody wins and nobody loses! Life is fair and balanced.

    Stubbing your toe is a true danger. Stop making light of people who have to endure dangerous, and risky travel conditions! Everyone is special and equal, and I kindly ask you to stop mocking our heroic Brokers. Not all heroes wear capes buddy! Some wear pajamas and slippers!

    Because that's what we do now. We must not offend Russia and China. It then lets the people complain by going "America isn't what it used to be! We should blame this guy, or that guy, or the other guy! You know it was those #### < insert political party/politician here>!" Ignoring the fact this is because we're now so afraid of offending two countries who've always been on the opposite side of whatever America is on.

    Can't offend those Russians and China though! It would take all the fun out of destroying this country via stupid things like blind allegiance to a politician or political party. Hey now though, I don't want to be labeled a rabble rouser/rebel, so I'll go back to sipping my vodka, eating my Kasha with chop sticks and a side of rice. I'll be a good comrade, I promise. Please don't send me to the Gulag.

    ;)

    We will also, need you to post the following as your signature on your posts or as your avatar. :)

    Hello sir. I’m an owner operator and I’m doing pretty good but I’d like to do better. I’d like to talk to you but it’s not letting me send you a message. Do you think you would reach out to me?
