    I tell you what man this crap will take the most preemptive maintenance minded business savvy individual and reduce him or her to nothing more than a soon to be company driver. All of the diagnosing, replacing, massive costs, ruthless roads, running loads, paperwork, repeat daily, weekly, monthly. I'm a tad stretched out. Pay yourself weekly and never ever spend the rest...not a penny of it! It WILL be needed. The numbers are still positive don't get me wrong......but man they are big numbers and juggling them feels like juggling chainsaws!

    I'm sorry to hear it's one of those weeks, matt.

    Would a world-famous TTR group hug help?....

    "Forget your lu-ust....
    For the rich man's go-o-old.
    All that you neee-eeed
    Is in your so-o-oul....
    And you can do this,
    If you try-yi-yi....
    All that I want for you, my son,
    Is to be satisfi-yi-yi-ed.....
    AND BAYBEE BE A SIMPLLLLLLLE...
    KIIIIIIIINDAAAAA MA-A-AAAAAAN......
    (Bwer-rer-rer, wer-wer-wer-wer,
    bwer-wer-wer-wer.....)

    Hope this helps. I often find solace in the words of the prophet Skynyrd....

    Yes siree! Saw them in a Spectrum concert in Philly back in the day.
    Humble Pie, Black Sabbath, Spooky Tooth and Skynyrd for $8.50.
    Whole different world back then. never thought it would go the way it did.

    Yeah, I just put 2 new calipers , 2 brake hoses, and 2 rotors on the steers.
    There goes 500 bucks like nothing. Got a deal on the rotors or I'd really be crying.
     
    homeskillet and mattvogelpohl Thank this.

    You gotta vent like Matt (and me) once in awhile or you explode.
    I happened onto a site from a search that was Freightliner school bus parts,
    and the rotors were 40 bucks cheaper than I could find anywhere. 80 bucks in my pocket better than theirs.
