    No idea. All the other tires looked fine. I haven't a clue how one tire could have that kind of damage but not the others.

    And of course my meet driver had a fit about me being 1/2 hr late. So showed him the pic and said I'd bring it as is the next time. I'll probably make it, but will he?

    How does a delivery take 2 hours for the small truck, but 30-45 minutes for the big truck?

    Ramp and dolly vs either liftgate or backing up to the dock and using the pallet jack.

    Am I the only one that sees a viciously angry fish with fangs on that tire?

    Well it was hard I got out bid by one guy.
    Oh well maybe it’s for the best. The good news is my routes that I do have pay well better then the run I bid on so there’s that and I don’t think management really wanted the other guy because it creates a little bit of a problem for them because his routes are not as attractive to bid on because there way out at a far away yard and they have a hard time finding people to do those routes and work out of that yard.

    rules are rules and they have to follow the rules, but I could tell he was not there choice if they had to choose.

    Anyhow I thought this may happen so that’s how it goes looks like I wont see you out there, but I’ll keep beating that drum it’s all I can do.

    Anyhow have another heavy day of two wheel pushing tomorrow and everyday after that ahead of me lol!
