    The guy in the middle just got the "call me back in half an hour" speech for the sixth time in a row.

    It was in a rest area in Nebraska. And yep it worked. Man oh man, I remember using those to call for my next load and listening to hold music forever!

    Sounds like you just wanna be a trouble maker and make the people at the service counter actually do their job. Lol

    I remember before cell phones,
    Pulling over on the shoulder of the interstate,
    Turn on the 4-ways, and cutting through the woods
    To the gas station to find a pay phone, to get the
    Load information.

    What really sucked was when someone had ripped
    The cord from the phone or you ran out of quarters from
    Sitting on hold. Lol.
    We got it so much easier now.

    I dunno...do we?

    Back then, it was expected that we needed time to read a map, call for directions, and get ahold of dispatch when we could get to a pay phone. These days, everyone wants it done NOWNOWNOW, and if you're even a millisecond beyond what they consider 'acceptable,' you'll have your arse chewed like a piece of gum.

    The good old days weren't necessarily bad.
