    I would need a loan to start a business.....which is what almost all businesses do anymore.....and the banks love it. They are the only ones loving it..
    The 'start your own business' stance seems to be a great sales pitch for banks.....
    Keep saying that and they keep getting more and more money for nothing...interest.
    People used to save money to start businesses...That isn't the way they do it today.
    Never wonder why the bankers are the big donors in DC....and never wonder why they get appointed to many high positions in government........you encourage the things which made it that way.
    They don't have many high ranking government officials who come from our ranks much anymore....and we don't hold the high seats by the President...and haven't for decades.

    No wonder, I did not go to a bank for a business loan. Why did you say I had to??
    What do you know about running a company?
    Obviously not much or you would be running are a successful business.

    Let me guess, you are happier driving a truck...

    SO...let me guess.....you saved all them trillions of pennies and nickels that you earned driving for nonunion companies........and you bought it all by yourself.....no help from nobody...the wife....an inheritance....a lawsuit......You just lived in your truck and ate crackers out of vending machines and drank tap water and started your multibillion dollar business.

    If the banks want you out of business...you will go out of business.

    you sound paranoid..
    I can tell you have no idea how businesses work...
    You need a union, you are incapable of running a business...

    DO you really think I care?
    You are probably unhirable also....hence the reason you own your own truck....Nobody wanted you.

    You still didn't expose your great way of owning your own truck without a loan.......wife?
    inheritance?
    lawsuit?

    No wonder they don't hire you.......you must be drunk...I have no clue what you are trying really hard to say.
    Were you drunk on company time and the union couldn't save your job?
    Is that why you hate us?

    Back in the mid '80's there was a Powder Puff working the 1st rest area on the Indiana Tpk eastbound out of Chicago.

    I've worked at some places.....and ALL of them acted like they knew it all and were the greatest....just like you.......yet a lot of them ain;t around anymore....it's just a game of one, or a few racketeers coming in, getting in certain spots and stealing from the employees, stealing from the investors, and stealing from the customers...until it's all gone.....the whole worshipping business and thinking anybody knows what they are actually doing has been a complete joke.
    New Penn seemed to no what they were doing when I got here...although no matter how much employees or anybody says they are great....I've seen enough to know that things happen to change that....and when the YRC merge happened....it started.
    Actually it started when somebody met with New Penn years before I got here and played the great business myth of....they needed growth......and to get growth...they should set it up so Roadway could buy them.....people made fast money and New Penn was on it's way out imo.

    they had a profitable business....their model worked....it wasn't the hugest business with the hugest profits...but customers and employees were happy...so I suspect somebody at the top wanted more.
    They used small trailers. They had lots of guys on the dock. Lots of road drivers(at our terminal)....And everybody made as much money as they legally could or wanted.

    ..Then some more of the great business people, that somehow you think I'm supposed to be in awe of or something, came in from YRC..Spend all kind of money on union carriers and then can't pay their bills to the banks.....New Penn owned everything...now they own nothing.
    Our people even at corporate fought the 53's coming in....obviously they knew it would screw up the whole operation....and it did......but the paycuts YRC demanded led to nobody wanting to work here......driver shortage due to nobody wanting to work our rules for our pay.
    Now even if we went back to 45's...we don't have enough drivers and can't attract them with the :shit: pay.
    we can't have them with the volume they want....and volume is what they want. New Penn used to only seem to take freight which paid good. Speed mattered. Volume didn't matter. Stacking was frowned upon. load bars were never thought of and used........and new penn made money.....they don't lose money. They didn't damage freight because they didn't care about volume and cramming trailers full from top to bottom to cut the amount of road drivers.

    So your great people who know how to run a business and make millions of dollars every year......have ruined another business Mr. puff.
    I don't think any of them know how to run a business anymore...they just know how to take from others for themselves....and :horseshit: the whole way thru.

    Without having the business smarts they do...I'd say going back to the 45's and taking in less volume would be best if new penn at least wanted to look good and have a low OR.....as new penn goes down with YRC.....maybe they'd make less money...but they'd not lose money.
    They'd probably have to downsize to the amount of employees that they have so they can handle what they take on.
    Go back to 45's.
    Go back to freight that pays.
    Only take freight that pays.
    Only take freight that the amount of employees that we have can handle
    No stacking.
    no load bars.
    Speed....with less volume.
    Then they could have low OR.....but not big profits...just like they had before.
    We'd be on time....and less damages......and that is what the customers seemed to like and want with them.
    And the reliability was worth keeping us and paying us.
    But your bigshot know-it-all-overpaid management types have succeeded in running their own business for themselves...and wrecking most chances of this company ever coming back.
    their experienced guys are now 10 years older..and some retired....the quickness doesn't last forever...nor does a good attitude after being thugged and robbed for the last 10 years. And since they keep doing things the way every other bankrupted business did.....their attitudes don't improve.......

    So tell me all about management and the whole investor mentality Puffy........if I was an investor....the first thing would be to say....no exec gets millions/year until the OR is restored to the 80's like it was years ago......maybe $100,000/ year max at the top.......and then they might listen...otherwise they will just keep stealing...and acting like the industry knows what is best...and BSing that things have changed.


    What we have with your great business sense Puffy......is a company going down.....following all those other great minded businessmen....and many of them know nothing but how to take money for themselves at everybody else's expense.

    Speaking of people coming in and running the business for their own personal benefit................Bill Zollars daughter is married to the topdog at SAIA......so we see what business smarts is all about....not about investors...but about themselves.

    And one more gripe.........since I am in such a GREAT mood...........if huge is what works and is the only thing that works...and is all anybody wants....and is the only way to profit..........then why does UPS and FEDEX and the post office still use little package cars and mail trucks?

    Because forcing them to go out in 102 wide, 53 foot trailers will not get the job done....they slow the whole thing down........but please show us how great the wide and tall and long trailers are gonna save us......we'll be waiting for the results and get them when the place is no more.

    Thanks for proving my point. Great business men built New Penn and with the same exact employees, bad businessmen ruined it.

    I appreciate the compliment..
