    The assett mgr i had was useless…this week she tried to argue that a walmart live unload that they sent with a 28 window was accurate and i tried to explain it to her that the appointment wasn’t set..

    she claimed she has spent 5yrs on the walmart fleet and that this is how walmart does the live unloads at the dc’s…she basically went on claiming as a driver I don’t know what im talking about…come the next day, they ended up setting the appt…smh..

    She must have been smoking. Walmart sets schedules down to the minute. I’ve had like 12 minutes past the hour type appointments with them many times. They operate on a very precise scheduling and won’t ever change that. Now what happens to a live unload driver is another story, but that’s another thing altogether. Make sure you mention the pipe to her. :).

    Ive lived in Florida long enough to know you don’t know where it’s going to hit until about 12 hours out, with its current west north west track, history shows it will end up in the panhandle. No worries for Tampa.

    Hopefully. Usually everytime I get sent this far south they sit me for 2 full days due to 'no loads' so worried I would be stuck in bad weather after unload.

    Actually, latest is coming in the big bend area, then just west of my house. We're expecting storm totals between 6-10" of rain... fortunately it is predicted to drop back to a mid-Cat 1 by landfall so it seems the biggest threat is flooding.
     
    Lonesome Thanks this.

    I would have to show my arse and say to her "I guess I was right...now we know why you aren't on the Walmart fleet anymore"..and since you're planning on departing soon, ride her like a rented mule and make her life hell for your remaining days...
