Well, we first had the tire problems on the previous trailer which then caused us to be late and miss our delivery appointment. Then we ended up sitting a day before anybody could get us a new appointment. Then….get this…. yesterday we got a message at 3pm to hurry up and make the new delivery appointment of 230pm. Huh? You tell me 30 minutes AFTER the appointment? YUP. We managed to talk our way into the gate yesterday then they told me to do an “emergency” repower for another driver. We put our trailer in the door for unloading then when the other driver came, he got to babysit the trailer in the door and we ran off with his trailer to make our delivery last night.
We arrive last night about 30 minutes before our appointment only to be told by the gate guard, and verified by the transportation office there, that the delivery appointment was really TONIGHT at 11pm. Yup, yet another snafu with dates and times. So, now we get to sit all day today and return to the delivery tonight to get rid of this load. All that big rush for absolutely nothing. Well, another day of layover pay is in order. Three trips for the new year and all three have had problems. Here’s hoping the fourth trip will actually work as it’s supposed to?
