    Thank you so much for your concern, sir.

    There are a few reasons why i've chosen not to contribute anymore to my 401k accounts, which i don't really wish to get into right now.

    (Hint:daddyrich.....)

    i'll put it on the table: My grandfather and dad worked their asses off so i could pretty much mooch of the fruits of their labor.

    So i could sit on my ass all night listening to podcasts/music and eat and drink, with my arm hanging out the window.

    The greatest generation.............we're not.

    But yes, i think 401K is a good thing as well as Roth's. In my case, however, i think it would be best to take that money and start a business rather than to tie it up.

    None of my business, &, my world WILL NOT collapse if you don't answer my question. Why do you post you pay check stub? I would file mine put it in the drawer & get on with it. von.

    I guess for informational purposes. People are always asking about UPS. May as well get some info out there, I guess.

    So, are you saying that your story redefines the saying 'slipping her the salami'? von.

    It’s a very informative notion that this person is taking and eliminates any heresay that always lingers around. I like that the guy has the balls to do it.

    To give you REAL INFORMATION YOU CAN USE. Most of what is posted on most trucking forums, including this one, is useless bull's hit. i give you REAL INFORMATION YOU CAN USE.

    i do not understand the question, and with all due respect, perhaps we both should review my answer to your first question above....

    This week was not typical in that i worked at small pack the day after thanksgiving and thus made a crapload of overtime as you can see.

    As i said, i would never work at small pack permanently. Too boring and the atmosphere is just weird to me. It's ok to make extra $$$ though.

    Although the question is now moot because corporate says we cannot go to small pack anymore.

    1) i apologize for not doing too well this year; i'll try better next year. OR, i may have to accept that i'm a $60,000-a-year man and will have to budget for this. Now, i DID NOT reach full pay scale until august, so that may have been a factor.

    2) Tractors don't have enough caster, fuel tanks too small, little bit of "estrogen poisoning" going on at a few terminals. Other than that, i STILL think this is a great gig and good place to work.

    With you hourly you should be pushing 100,000. I knew 2 road drivers that never marked off, worked all the holidays, & grossed close to 106,000, this being about 4 years ago on 15% give back. A couple of city boys were very near 70 to 73 thousand. But, you have to be alive to enjoy the fruits of your labor. von.

    Sounds like too much work to me. I marked off when I wanted and made 60-80. That seemed like a better approach to me.

    Correction. ABF is on a 7% give back, not 15%. von.

    Had to do niteliner bull's hit the entire week in the first check for internal political reasons i don't want to get into now.

    Some niteliner runs are getting cancelled----and that's a good thing.

    401's aren't that great, they are convenient.
    The company doesn't match so it's your pre tax money that goes in.
    whenever you retire and start pulling from it it's going to be taxed at the tax rate that's in place when you retire,and taxes don't go down
    You can also loose it all overnight as it's stock market investments
    I've been putting 250 a week in a interest earning savings account for the last 19 years.
    And have more than My brother that's been doing the same for 18 Months longer in a 401k.
