    It happened again, dispatch calls the cell, I'm in the shower and missed the call, I call back and informed that I didn't answer so it went to the next truck in line. Again no call to the home phone.

    Yep it happens to me from time to time..My biggest proplem is I cant change or dont know how to stop my voicemail from kicking in after 3 rings..Very seldom is a message left as they have to fill the order and I assume it doesnt matter what/whos truck it goes on. Tight p-up times may enter into this?? Who knows..

    One good thing is they are calling and that gives ya a glimer of hope that there is freight out there..


    They may hate message machines as much as I do when I call in. Yesterday morning I arrived for a drop and the receiving dept was closed untill Monday,,Sent message across satellite with no repley.. Called in with no answer then got lucky as all get out as I found a guy in a suit that promised to get me empty as soon as he could find someone that knew how to operate a fork lift. Was empty after a short lil wait.. Come to find out truck was suppose to be rerouted to a warehouse while I was enroute..No idea who dropped the ball on that one.
