    HOW?!?!?! He had to give me a WHOLE f*&KING quiz about my EZPASS? EVERYTIME I see the guy he treats me like I'm just a total moron! It's VERY DISRESPECTING! I'm serious here...if he does this one more time....I really HATE to do it, but I'm just gonna have to put him in his place....not gonna fight or anything, but I am one that is good with words. I hate being mean, but if you are disrespectful to someone and treat them like they don't know what they are doing, or they don't know their job at all.....then that's it! Just sayin'! Hope you are having a great week, dude.

    Myself and some others are glad you like it here but we don't really want to know how much you're making a week. Some things are better just keeping to yourself. You tell people how much you're making then you're going to have an idiot find out what your driver number is and ask why you're getting all these miles and he/ she isn't.

    where did I put how much I'm making a week? I only put miles for last week....I put how much I would've made at my last company(which was general freight)....and there's only one guy on here that knows what I look like....don't think he'll be a 'whistleblower'....so no worries here.

    Sounds like BGWVTRUCKER might be one of those drivers that would bitch about or ask someone "why is he getting all these miles and I'm not".

    I don't bitch cause I don't ask. None of my business. I've found out in my 30 years of driving that when a co-worker starts throwing out in the open how much their check is going to bitch to management. It's best to keep your pay to yourself.

    I don't think it really matters to most unless you have a schedule then for most of the drivers it's just the luck of the draw. Take all they will give nobody is really guaranteed to get anything. Any run can be cut or changed at anytime. Be careful out there.

    maybe the ones who bitch to management about someone else's paycheck being more than there's should work a little harder instead of being a lazy TURD.

    I agree but if you keep your pay to yourself or maybe face to face with a driver you trust then the snitch driver can't bitch

    WOW...that was 2 months ago....and mentioned that to show people, who are interested in coming over here, you can make good money starting out! ONCE AGAIN, I've seen COUNTLESS posts on these boards of guys posting(LIKE ME) a GROSS for a week. You act like it's a bad thing. Am I posting what I'm making every week? NO, one week and two months ago=1 freaking post and you go through the roof? WOW dude, things must not be going so great, sorry.

    Keep doing what you're doing pal, there is nothing wrong with giving an honest review. We need more reviews like this anyway in my opinion. It's no different than an hourly employee saying he worked X amount of hours last week.

    You don't know how i am doing. It's nobody's business. If I get asked any questions about miles,i tell them "It's paying the bills". Found out long ago that the least you tell people your personal and financial business the better it'll be. I'll talk sports all day long. Glad you're happy and making money while being safe. That's all its about.

    BG.....NOT starting a fight with you at all! Just remember this...AND THIS IS HONEST! I just started 4 months ago(so not bottom payscale.....but NOT high-end either. Got 4 years previous experience)! I REALLY have no plans on leaving AT ALL! I worked a total of 3 days the week before last.....it is what it is....welcome to XTRA BOARD (LMAO)....but I really like this! It's new, it's fresh.....so far this week they have made it up to me for the past 2 weeks that sucked! Did CLOSE to 1700 since weds and it's saturday! In Jersey, will be home Monday! I'm REALLY gonna stay out for around 2-3 weeks(it's actually WORTH IT, NOW!) but can't make up my mind...when....my luck, I say winter and I'm SCREWED in the upper midwest/close to NW! haha but yeah....I've learned quick, TRUCKING IS TRUCKING! We ALL get paid either good OR bad(within LTL, 'speaking'), but on xtra, it's NOT your 'say'. I'm learning 'the ropes' of LTL 'xtra' and as far as MY decision(I have a really close friend that works for OD and REALLY wanted me to go with them....I'm NOT into slip-seat...just me!) but I've always liked(I'm a weirdo...leave me alone!) the Estes colors! Kind of Exciting! PLUS, when I get in on Mondays...I wear my work shirt out to grocery store,etc and (HONEST NO JOKE!) I can't tell you how many people will stop me and say....'HEY, I was just talking about you guys! Man, your shipping prices are AMAZING!" I'm like....(thinking) 'ok...I just drive'....but it sure DOES put a smile on my face over my decision! Anyone got $5 bucks I can borrow? lol gotta end with a joke!

    Loved extraboard and didn't care if I made it home on the weekends or not when I ran it as long as there was a bar with senorita's in walking distance from the motel. Walking distance for mildew and normal folks somewhat differs by several miles
