    I am stranded in Daytona Beach FL. and have been for 9 days now. My company sent me down here from IN. in a day cab. They refuse to send me per diam, lodging money. I need to know what I can do to get this from them? I cannot drive home for the fuel card accounts are cut off. Do they owe me for the days I've been here? If so how many hours a day?

    Why did they send you down there? Care to name the company? Where are you sleeping at?

    If your fuel card was turned off, it sounds like you were Termed.

    Time to take the Shoe Leather Express.

    We need a LOT more info. The 1st thing that comes to mind, is why you would go from Indiana to Florida in a day cab? And 2nd, after the second day sitting, I'd be on a "Megabus" on my way home. Sounds awful. What's the deal?:dontknow:

    Because thats all the company has and this has never happened before. things were good until this trip. I don't know why all this happened. I feel like I'm up against the wall with no where to go. I don't have the money to get home. I think the company has pretty much went under but not sure.

    It doesn't matter if this person has a load back or not, the fuel cards don't work.
