    I have made 550K consistently.
    Working for myself, in whatever truck I want.
    I dont keep track of hours....never even owned a log book

    I ditch scales and inspections, never get caught. DOT tend to wave on their way past, they all know me and I have been with most of their wives.

    The girls that come to my door at night are rather classy, we tend to enjoy a nice steak dinner with a bottle of red wine before commencing with the activities for the evening. No money required.

    Always get the gravy loads too. I just show up with loads at random places and people just pay cash outright for the whole load. Gets unloaded for free and off I go.

    My trucks are always clean and polished. People give me money just to look at it and take a look through the inside.

    I take vacations whenever and wherever I please, money is no object.

    Sounds alright, eh?

    Thats all well and good driver but the real questions are: Did you smell any diesel? Do you drive a container ship?

    How much do the people that run those ships on the ocean make per year? How about those guys that take people out hunting or fishing? How much do they make every year?
