    “Sorry, can’t get a 48’ trailer in there, so this is coming back.”

    And I’ve had plenty of straight truck drivers go to places that I’ve shoehorned in to where other trailer drivers wouldn’t.

    Speak real soft EARLY in the morning.

    Good morning Boss (Just above a wisper. Bad phone a plus.. preferably in Camden NJ.

    If it did escalate to yelling wisper lighter or even stop talking and wait.

    That particular day went from fun to worse. No one ever listens to me... The enraged dispatcher now orders me and my dead and buried generations to report to VA Beach by 2 PM.

    "Sorry Boss that's not a good idea today not going to happen."

    More yelling this time a threat direted at me.. are you trying to be a wise ### drivah? I would have you fired so fast....

    Fine see you in VA Effing beach at 2 PM. By phone.

    2:04 rolls round from a payphone at a burger king just outside fo fightertown fencing perimeter. Entire place is at war.

    Hello Boss.

    FINALLY *(&*&^ what is this you [SCCCCCRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEECCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR followed by ground shaking thunder of burners.

    It was 4 days before they could be bothered to speak to me again. I told them that isn't going to happen there today due to carrier quals and exercisess of 4 air wings.
