    We had a customer at YRC, if the shrink wrap had a cut he called in a claim. After a while of them finding out his scam they kinda told him where to go and how to get there. Shipper said he’s been through so many carriers.

    I know with towing cars you get the people who try to be rude. I’ve packed up and left before with that. Or people refusing to pay the price. Trucks on the other hand i don’t really deal with people arguing pay. Normally it’s a billed account or a owner operator coming to the shop for repairs. At our shop normally if a owner operator calls for a road service, and if it can’t be fixed and they have us tow the truck and trailer back to the shop for repairs, my boss gives them a break

    The hits just keep coming. Found out earlier today that the truck assigned to my new schedule does 70. Should make the trip across Illinois a little more fun.

    Hey, extra board trash checking in. Sitting at home, babysitting my phone. Napping on and off like a veal.

    Look at the shipping method. My precious parts I’ve been waiting for almost 2 months is in their hands. I’m scared.

    Speaking of BS claims. Shipper sent out a crate of some kind of silicon rods used for electrical components . Somewhere in transit the crate tipped over and the contents fell out of their retaining containers.

    The receiver rejected the crate and we brought it back. All the shipper had to do was inspect and restack the rods. We would have paid for the two or three manhours for them to do it .

    They refused to restack their rods and filed a $40k claim against us. Yeah, we no longer ship their stuff .

    The best part was at the bottom.

    “Make sure you pay your sales tax”.

    Yeah, ok. I’ll get right on that. :laughing-guffaw:
