    I don't mind sliding tandems back before I enter, but I will slide them forward if I need to before I go out.
    I will not leave a place unless I am reasonably sure I can scale correctly.
    Also, there may be no safe place to slide them after I leave.

    If they have a problem with that they can always ban me from coming back in, and good riddance to them.
    Useless people make these rules, and the only way to fight back is to do the right thing.

    Dude, I've gotten my ### reamed by my driver manager for doing exactly that... carriers don't take kindly to their drivers getting themselves kicked out of customer facilities
     
    G13Tomcat, Coffey and Moosetek13 Thank this.

    And then nothing good ever comes, do something about it because other drivers are. I'm routinely letting customers know they can kiss my ### with the stupidity some have. If I accept a load and any of the customers bs rules are not in the notes then it was in fact the carriers fault for sending me that dispatch. Don't put up with ANY bs.

    Not sliding tandems before you begin to leave the customer is a dangerous thing for all concerned.

    Sure, sometimes the load requires it.
    And usually it is because the shipper loaded it badly.
    I know at the Lowe's in Cheyenne they love to load tail heavy, unless you are going to CA.
    It is only because they can, and are being jerks about it. There is no reason to load differently depending on the destination, in my opinion.
     
    misterG and G13Tomcat Thank this.

    There seems to be an uptick in power only ... I see mega trailers being pulled by independents pretty much daily.

    LoL.. I'm SO guilty of the 'double negatives' myself. Wife hammers me for it all the time. My most famous is "I didn't see NOTHING!" (As she's yelling at the kiddo, haha! For real!)
