    I'm going to certainly try my best to never come here again. I said that to myself last time. It was so long ago I forgot all about it :confused:

    Everyone steps on a mine like that once in awhile.

    You're clickity clacking along, and don't ask who the shipper or receiver is, and then it's like,"Oh Dear God no."

    Hahahaha, I saw AWG on my dispatch email and thought, "hmm what's that stand for?" Then got to shipper and saw the whole name for the receiver after I got my paperwork. I always check out my paperwork to pre-route myself. Still didn't think much of it til I got here and realized....ohhhhhhh, these guys....... And yes, I'm STILL here :(

    Fortunately for us if we get it snapped off in our backsides like that, we either get a truck load of detention, or, if it's an awful enough experience, I mark that agent with a "Never again" on my phone.

    Finally got out of there at 9:30am. The lumper forgot to call me to tell me there was a discrepancy with the efs. I've been sitting there for hours because he forgot! I've been talking with the broker for the last few hours and they couldn't figure out what the deal was either after speaking to the receiver a few times. I will be getting detention pay for the last almost 12 hours, so that's a plus. Hallelujah!!!! I'M OUTTA THERE!!!

    Hopefully you get your detention.

    My take on places / situations like this is that they never change. Be it the broker, the receiver, whomever. Always the same story.

    Fool me once.............
     
    Kitty40 Thanks this.
