    Sorry but I'm running a trucking business. If I call you on a load YOU have posted, I'm expecting YOUR full attention.

    You wanna run a Nursery thats fine, not on my dime though... Why even answer the phone?



    I call you freight brokers and hear a baby crying, guess what?

    CLICK...

    I thought the class of truck drivers out here was terrible..................

    I dont care. Don't answer the phone then until things are under control. Both times this has happened neither one of them knew anything about the load anyhow...

    Clueless as they come...

    Thats another thing if I call on a load and you start the UH, UUHH, UUUHHH I'm Clueless game... guess what?

    I kind of understand, but do you have kids? Things don’t really happen as planned.

    However, if they are clueless anyway then yeah I agree, might as well move on.

    What if your wife was booking your loads and brokers said click because your little boy was making a fuss in the background?

    you wanna talk unprofessional??

    my mayor is married, his wife is going to law school

    HE takes the baby to work with him, has the baby with him at press conferences, or on a tv news talk show.

    his "attitude"..??

    you don't like it tough.

    and no, i don't like it, and i couldn't be any happier, it's his LAST term as our LOSER mayor.

    No I don't, nor do I have anything against kids.

    The point is when I call someone to conduct a business transaction I expect that persons full attention.

    Thank you

    I could tell you don't have kids lol. Nobody who has little kids would make a thread like this, especially in the current environment. Yes, it is frustrating to do business when the person on the other side of the phone does not give you the complete attention, but until schools reopen just learn to deal with that. People are trying to do the best they can

    Maybe your mayor is a loser, I don’t know. I do know that I purposely carpeted a portion of my office so that my son has a place to play.

    I would rather have him with me then send him to a baby sitter. If you don’t want to do business with me because of that... good riddance.
