    Oh no. No no no.

    I was on time. I was told to be here at 1:00pm, I was here at 1:00pm. I did my job.

    Still here, btw. Still waiting to be "worked in" by the crew. Going on 4 hours of detention now, and I'm almost out of hours on my 14 so I'll be spending the night here when they're done.

    Called dispatch to let them know my situation since they had pre-planned me a load under the expectation that I would be able to make it to BH Groveport tonight. Apparently they checked and double-checked the info they got from the broker about this load, and the broker had the appointment for 1:00pm as well. So it was either the broker or the shipper/receiver who gave the wrong info.

    Not that I care, particularly. I've taken a picture of the qualcomm showing the 1:00pm delivery appointment time, and I will be happy to show it to anybody who says I can't get detention because I was "late".

    My only beef is that today was supposed to be shower day. Was gonna grab one after finishing up here, and instead I'm gonna hafta bust out the baby wipes so I don't go to bed with The Stank.

    I do NOT miss that part of OTR. Shower and sleep in my own bed every night.

    Oh... no no no.... I was saying that you were “on time”.... only to then discover that due to data entry errors that you were then three hours late.... thus the “thanks a lot I almost pissed my pants for this “on time” delivery comment....

    you did your job!!!
