    Would real expediters?

    I think the one thing most are missing from this is.... A GPS is a tool just like a hammer or any other tool... And if you have no idea of how to use this tool. All your going to do is end up hitting your thumb and cussing alot.. So how about a class in common sense... I'm pretty sure that would...

    Bad O/O and Bad Drivers

    So you really think that fleet owners don't get on here... If someone called them a bad owner and was bashing them for whatever reason... Then you could have The Paul Harvey Rest of the story to make it all fair

    Naming Bad Fleet Owners

    So if i getting this right what EQ is trying to do is stop the new guy who just got the short end of the stick... From posting said owner is a deadbeat.. But if you have 1 or 14000 post it might be ok... I think i'm seeing the forest again

    Naming Bad Fleet Owners

    Good versus bad

    See here is the thing the guy that i work for now is just a man of his word.. And i am a man of my word.. He does what he says he going to do and do the things he ask me to do... Pretty simple when you think about it.. But so many of these owners and drivers are no longer men or women of there...

    Owner playing with my pay

    Now i guess the big question is was there any advances he had taken while he was sitting in those places ??? But if he owned money for the runs he did do... Just seems kinda odd that some owner have a problem remembering when pay day is... But if the carrier did that too him they would be...

    If you want something controversial and a arguement just waiting to happen lets put these butt holes. On here so everyone kinda knows who to stay away from. Or have water tight contract so there are no misunderstandings. On pay hometime or whatever it might be
