Hey robsteeler, what I've done is pull it up on my phone then take a screen shot (Samsung galaxy I hold power and menu button at same time) and theres a paintbrush editing tool when I open the picture (screenshot) that I then use to cross out any info I don't want visible

Google has some amazing apps now. I use Drive for everything important. O have all sorts of documents there that I can edit from virtually anything. Not to mention you can share them with others. My wife and I have a shared sheet for our budget.

Hey Rob. Just noticed swiping whole hand right to left across screen also takes a screen shot (Note 9 / Android Pie). Been using and liking your button push trick (vs. stylus) but I think I discovered a difference. I seemed to save a lot of the same images your way, as if it was saving the "main page" (or something) not exactly what I saw on screen (which the stylus grab) always gets right. I will play with them all. Bottom line... LOTS OF WAYS to save images.

Also... I understand some companies charge an administrative fee for per diem. Probably still come out ahead but as it is really just an accounting "trick" it seems a bit much. I think .08 - 1%+ is what I recall seeing...

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Per Diem:

Getting paid per diem means getting a portion of your salary paid to you without taxes taken out. It's technically classified as a meal and expense reimbursement.

Truck drivers and others who travel for a living get large tax deductions for meal expenses. The Government set up per diem pay as a way to reimburse some of the taxes you pay with each paycheck instead of making you wait until tax filing season.

Getting per diem pay means a driver will get a larger paycheck each week but a smaller tax return at tax time.

We have a ton of information on our wiki page on per diem pay

I'm sure your Wife has enabled the function to be able to edit your budget, and disabled the function for you to edit Hers!

Sample file? Love to see what (after 15 years as a Pro) you believe should be tracked! Even just a list of columns might be helpful.

I never really tracked anything other than the load number, the empty miles, and the loaded miles. That was it. Each paycheck I would make sure they paid me for all of the loads I hauled and made sure the mileage pay was correct. I never saw any reason to track anything else, really.

Not sure why we still call them phones. It is actually a computer that is also able to make phone calls!

Unless needed as an alarm clock I turn mine off every night.

Also do NOT fall for the "we need to restore your device to default" (the way it came out of the box) to fix it. This is almost always an early "last resort" "quick fix" attempt by a clueless "tech". If it didn't come from a top-tier technician knowledgeable in your device/OS version/App(s) it may not even fix the problem. It may, however, take many hours to get your device working again the way you need/want it to work.

I usually request a new device instead! If I am going to go to that much trouble it is probably time to upgrade anyway!

Also... the more you travel the more confused some devices get. Rebooting a phone after crossing several States (on the ground or in the air) is often a good thing.

I'm pretty sure it's been hijacked for a while now. Lol
