    The vultures in dispatch will pick your corpse clean. I've seen RESCUE fees attributed to the deceased that would make me want to rise from the dead. In one instance, "our" trucker dies in his sleep, by the time dispatch finished with their Rescue cost distributions and mark-ups, I was tempted to call the police and charge those dispatchers with desecration of a corpse. Stay ALIVE, my friends.

    I am the dispatcher and also the driver. If I die in there I am aware my company will have to pay someone, somehow, to deal with getting my body to wherever, taking care of the load, etc. Whatever, I am dead. Who cares. Hopefully they can charge it all to my line of credit before the bank finds out I am dead.
