    My heart cath went as well as I had hoped. With only 40 percent blockages, they are treating me with meds and not stents. Just hope the medical bills and meds don't send me into cardiac arrest. Should be back to work after a couple of follow ups early next week.

    Change of plans, instead of delivering this load Monday I will drop it at our Council Bluffs yard Sunday, and pick up a trailer going to Tennessee for a Monday delivery at 1300.

    I am way over due for a service and my APU pooped the bed, but it will have to wait. Supposedly they are slammed with freight and needed this load covered.

    So as all of you know I always have great things to say about FCC, but the last 7-10 days have been the worst since I got here 28 months ago. Some because of a certain consignee that screwed my whole week up last week, and partly because someone in corporate screwed up on the current load I’m on. I got empty yesterday in Kingsport, Tn. was going across town to pick up a short run going to Spartanburg, SC, no big deal I’ll run this short run down to Spartanburg for tomorrow morning. I look at the load after I already accepted it and notice there isn’t a delivery appt. and it doesn’t deliver until Wednesday.

    WTF? A 124 mile run that doesn’t deliver until Wednesday? Now I’m pissed, I’m not out here to babysit freight, I have fixed costs every week along with fuel. I let my dispatcher know I’m not happy before he leaves lastnight. He promises to get things worked out in the morning, and is confused as I am. True to his word he dug into it, found out what happened, and apologized about me sitting on this load today. He asked what i thought was a fair price to sit on the load today, I gave him a price, and he got me more than I asked for. I’m not happy about a wasted day, but they made it right, and I appreciate it.

    I guess I’ve gotten spoiled here at FCC, not having to deal with horrible shippers and receivers, and long load and unload times. I’ve got home time scheduled in a few days, go home, recharge and hopefully come out refreshed.

    On the run again. Picked up flooring from Thomasville NC to Calhoun GA. Dropped this morning headed to Ringgold for more flooring going to Menards DC in Valley NE. Will drop Sat evening or more likely Sunday morning then over to Lincoln for dog food product going to Ocala FL for Tuesday at 1730. Sitting at the rest area in KY near the IL line. Shop had me scheduled for maintenance Sat or Mon, but couldn't make it Saturday, and can't deliver load Tuesday if I had done maintenance on Monday. So they will bring me back after the FLA load for past scheduled maintenance. Freight must be hopping to keep that load on me!
