    Well my week went to shat pretty quick today thanks to an agent who either outright lied to me, or was pretty dang deceitful.

    I picked up a load in SC Tuesday that was coming up here to Indiana that was supposed to be a drop and hook. Whenever I book a
    D/H load to a new receiver I haven’t been to before I always ask the agent what the empty situation looks like at the receiver. She told me we always have plenty of empties. I show up this morning, and low and behold no empties. So I have to wait six hours for a trailer to get unloaded, which in turn causes me to cancel two other loads I had booked, costing me $3100 in revenue to the truck. Needless to say, I was furious.

    I won’t pull that load again, and the lady in the receiving office said they run into this issue with LS constantly, and have asked the agent on numerous occasions to get a few more empties in there. So that tells me she knew the empty situation.

    Agreed, I quit pulling their loads along time ago, for that very reason. It was a different agency, going to Value city furniture DC.

    Please take a few minutes today to remember and reflect on 9/11, and how you felt that day 21 years ago.

    I can remember sitting at a beer distributor in Tennessee, when news broke of the first plane hitting the 1st tower. For weeks afterwards I didn’t smile, laugh, or even listen to music, I just listened to the news as a drove across the country in the following days just trying to grasp any nuggets of information.

    I think too many people today have forgotten, me personally, I will never forget.

    I won't forget, that's for sure. Now if we just knew the real truth.

    The FBI recently unclassified documents after years of requests from surviving family members, these documents prove Saudi government officials helped plan, finance, and facilitate the attacks. If true, (because I’ve lost all faith in most government agencies) Why aren’t we holding these pricks accountable?

    Likely because American leaders were in on it and have made millions under the table in deals with the ######## and were being strong-armed to remain quiet, lest they get exposed.
