    Please read the attached newspaper article that one of the father's of 2 of our drivers wrote for his local paper.  Please forward this on to everyone you know.  Thank you.



      'I've got problems. Every time I go to bed I think there's somebody under it. I'm scared. I       think I'm going crazy.'

      'Just put yourself in my hands for one year,' said the shrink.
      'Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears.'

      'How much do you charge?'

      'Eighty dollars per visit,' replied the doctor.

      'I'll sleep on it,' I said.

      Six months later the doctor met me on the street.

      'Why didn't you ever come to see me about those fears you were having?' he asked.

      'Well, Eighty bucks a visit three times a week for a year is an awful lot of money! A       bartender cured me for $10. I was so happy to have saved all that money that I went       and bought me a new pickup!'

      'Is that so?' he asked with an attitude, 'and how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?'

      'He told me to cut the legs off the bed!

      - Ain't nobody under there now ! ! ! '
