    If you only started working there in the last few months,
    How do know all this information on what happened
    4 years ago at this company.

    The company that picked it up was just a sister company. Same owner, different company. The company where the truck broke down was not able to complete it so the owner sent a truck that was already down there to pick it up. YES this is wrong. I understand it's wrong. I know that was wrong. But it was done from the perspective of making things easier for all companies (shipper, broker, us). This was the message I tried explaining. It was not a shady business play, rather, an honest mistake that was blown out of proportion 4 years later.

    In reality, it would have been better just canceling the load at that time.

    Thank you for shedding more light on this from the perspective of a broker. But, based on your ability to communicate, I can assume that if this happened between your company and us, that we could have a proper conversation about the matter. I'm not implying that you'd take the post down, but we could at least have a conversation about it in a respectful way (which were always my intentions).

    In other words you have no dog in this fight.
    You have no proof or knowledge of anything
    That happened at that time, 4 years ago.
    You weren't even working there when all this
    Went down.

    All you have is what somebody told you happened.
    They could be lying to you, just like they lied
    To the broker about the load.
    Your just a driver that's been there 4 months.
    This is none of your business.
    You can't do anything about anything.

    It's a company problem, let them solve it.
    Find another place to work, where brokers
    Give you loads.
    Your way out of bounds on this.
    You got nothing to do with any of it.
    You weren't working there and you have no idea
    What happened.

    If it was communicated to the broker immediately then maybe you were wronged, but I doubt that is the case, you weren't there and neither was I so it's all hearsay. I can't believe everything went off without a hitch, if it did the originating broker would probably never know about it.

    Your right. But I'm not complaining about a load
    That happened 4 years ago for a company I didn't
    Even work for at the time.
    Did I hurt your feelings, telling another driver
    He has no say in any of this.
