    I’ve had my share over the years. Generally I give someone the benefit of a doubt. Try to avoid an escalation. A polite “excuse me” or “ what did you say?” goes a long way. Recently I had a Guard rudely tell me to park first, and come back. OK, it’s his territory. Then it was strictly Business. No extra talking or explaining. Just a somber look, and waiting for him to say something. He then must have realized he was being a jerk. He became extra nice and very helpful. Lol. Go figure. Just never know. Regardless, we have a job to do. They have a job to do. We need to be professional, while in others territories. You did the right thing. Got the job done, moving on. He’s still stuck in his shack one ### beating away from his own demise. He definitely would deserve it. You should make a complaint to someone after BOL is signed.

    The hardest thing to do is walk away , iv got natural violent tendencies. Iv used a pry bar on a guy and used racial epithets inside businesses. Really those losers aren't worth it and the possible arrest. the hardest thing to do is just not give a #### how they are acting

    I'am pretty fortunate the people I deal with when loading or unloading are all good people and easy to get along with ..
    I'am simply saying that I don't take kindly to being called a stupid truck driver ... I have no problem ringing some tard's bell that thinks their better than me ... I have a very short fuse

    I've been thinking about wearing a body cam for every interaction.

    Tell him to go F himself, call company/broker, take photos and refuse to deliver.
    Make them bring a small truck to offload to, i don’t put up with people going ballistic on me, i don’t react well.
