    I kind of got screwed on that one. I had a 5:30 a.m. appointment time and when they gave me the load there was no way I would have enough time to get there. I got there at 11 a.m. but the guard said they stopped at 9 a.m. they only unloaded from 1 a.m. to 9 a.m. of course the company didn't know that and neither did I. So being it was Friday I had untill 1 a.m. Sunday night.

    Did you get any compensation for the waiting?

    That sucks man, but what can ya do. Sometimes you're the hammer, sometimes you're the nail. But either way you got the short end of the stick.

    I hope Santa was good to all you Truckers. Left the house with a load from Greensboro to Minneapolis. 1136 miles to start the week. Only bad thing is I will not be able to get it there before noon Friday. So no paycheck next Friday. But I should be over 4000 for next week. Time to use the rewards card and eat some beans and taters!! I hate Christmas!
     
    Suspect Zero and Lonesome Thank this.

    Now I have to correct my previous post. I received a call a few hours ago from SAV informing me they would not let me go to next week without a paycheck. Trips are supposed to be turned in by noon Friday in order to be paid for them the following week. However I was not going to make my delivery until around 2pm. But they informed me they would pay me anyway. Now I did not call and ask for this favor. they called me. This is the sort of thing that doesn't come across when you read a list of benefits. This is more of the same reason why I highly recommended this company to other drivers. Other companies I have worked for wouldn't do that. Much less do it without me asking. So even though I won't have a great check next Friday. 1200 miles is much better than none.
