The WORST Shippers and Receivers - Truckers WILL NOT Buy Their Products!

This HEB in San Antonio sounds purty gnarly. Glad I'll never have to deal with them.
My personal most hated distribution center was Dollar General in South Boston, Virginny. Both of my trips there involved me staying there for about 12 hours.
First, there was the tedious check in at the guard shack, then the long wait to be assigned a dock. To be assigned a dock, you went through another tedious check in procedure at the receiving office.
Everyone who worked in that receiving office was the type of person who only was able to be proficient at one skill in life. And the one and only skill these stuffed shirts ever learned was how to check in freight at this particular Dollar General distribution center.
Anyhow, instead of employing a method of verifying the contents of a particular pallet by way of a scanner or other technology of the current millennium, the Dollar General method requires two management types to physically count each item on each pallet against a shipping manifest with one manager concurring with the other as they ever so carefully move down this list.
Standing around at the receiving office, I was stupefied by this slow process and complained loudly. The stuffed shirts in the office immediately fired back defending their tried and true method of checking in freight as if Moses himself etched in granite the almighty and infallible check in procedurals. I listened silently to one blather on about their sacred check in rites, but I bolted out the door when a second priest from on high began to chime in.
There may be more tedious places to go like military tribunals for war criminals at The Hague in The Netherlands, but this particular Dollar General dc infuriated me.
Miller Supply of PA
I got unloaded fine, then left to pull on the side of their driveway where the red marker is on the map. I was doing paperwork and logs when the owner knocks on my door.
He decides to scream at me saying that he has me timed on a clock and there’s proof I’ve been on his property for exactly 15 minutes after I’ve been unloaded and he’s calling the cops to get me to move. He continues to say how sh**y drivers are and ramble on while I’m putting my papers back so I can get out of here ASAP.
It blows my mind how people can be so rude and so heated so quickly without provocation.
