    I was once unloaded on Saturday night at Ford plant. The Guard said nobody was in, plant is shut. Then one straddler unloaded me, refusing 3 others after me that tried to get same service.
    The guard shack guy said good luck to my prediction of Mayweather beating McGregor that night, as well as getting unloaded.
    Sometimes, things do happen.

    Ok toolbag, you don't seem to realize HE wasn't late, it was a recovery. He did more than necessary to arrive as timely as possible. You sir are (since it will prob be censored) a "device within which fluid is stored in a 'bag' which then forcefully sprays liquid into a woman's nether region for purposes of feminine hygiene".

    Bottom line is you didn't read my entire post. I did come back in the morning. I was ½ hour later than the scheduled delivery time. This was a recovery due to a breakdown. Time was lost before I recovered the freight. Even if I had made the scheduled delivery time, receiving had been closed for an hour.

    Who you callin' a monkey?

    Starman, we don't call others names if we disagree with them. This behavior is prohibited in the Code of Conduct that you agreed with when you signed on.

    Secondly, this industry used to be a lot more rewarding. Things like detention, layover, hand load/unload were more or less an automatic thing. Eventually, new people got into the industry that were just taking it without getting paid for it and those things now almost but disappeared. Maybe we should pay attention to the oldtimers here like Moot and learn a few things.

    Of all the people who said they were going to write the book on expediting... I look forward to someday reading Moot's version the most.

    And to keep it simple for Starman 'cause he's too busy(?) to read...

    Moot is smaaawt...pay attention.

    Oooh! Looky what I got over the QC a few hours ago. Too bad my new found buddy didn't give me his name. I would like to thank him for refusing to unload me last night and send him some athletic tape.

    that is 1st time I have heard anybody not taking expedite load, great song and dance routine , one thing I always add was the 1st half hour is free than I'm going on clock at $25.00 every 15 min's and you want me to wait 8 hours to get off loaded that worked. you have to think of every trick in book to get off load and on to next load. taking the picture was a nice touch. most important thing you did was to wait until dispatcher told you leave. cause if you leave on your own, that just makes things harder, if you can't get a name take a picture. I would rate the job you did this at a 100 percent right.
