I know the difference between a "B-4" and a "B4" but apparently not everyone does. turn, turn, turn

humour aside.....There is no B-4 Espar as typed by Guido.....it is actually a B4 as stated on Guidos invoice...so in fact Turtle was NOT wrong.....

I hope this finds you all safe and snow free...

Getting loaded in Springfield, Missouri and heading to Laredo where I hope it is warm.

No John you just missed a post. It was said we could talk about pickles & shorts and I said or shackles & warts. Just trying to make a rhyme.

So, I get a call at around 2330 asking IF I would be ready to load IF I can get this load going to Arlington Txt?
I say no, I'm not going to go to Dallas. Sorry.
You're not going to Dallas? Ok, I'll have to put you in for a turn down, brother. Good luck.

Seriously? Didn't even bid on it and it's a turn down? Ok...then put in the turn down notes what I said and not what you think I said. After spending several days here in Kansas City how on earth does a load to Dallas seem better somehow? From a drivers perspective, it's not better.
When you threaten and then penalize on a nonexistent load, call it what you will. I will call it what it is...forced dispatch.

How many times has it been said that turn downs are to track layover pay. If they want to bid you a load and you say no then you don't get to claim it. Really no different then them having a load and turning it down. Don't know why some worry so much about turndowns. Other than you lose layover. An opportunity to move you, whether a bid or an actual load is still lost by you saying no !!! It's really no big deal, it's just 75 or 50 bucks or whatever you lose !!!
