    No but i bet they would take more time off. Screw the product it can wait a couple days. If its that important they shouldnt wait till the last min to ship it. So ur telling me then if the roads are bad and dangerous to drive its worth ur life to keep truckin just to please the broker? Ur about as sympathetic as TQL maybe u should go work there u will fit right in.

    I mean, a quick search shows 23 pages of posts about TQL, and a quick sampling of the first two or so pages shows a bunch of negative posts.

    TQL sucks, but a death in your family is not their responsibility or the responsibility of their client who they are working for to move their frieght. You agreed to take a load from point A to point B and have it delivered on time. There are consequences if you can't follow through with the terms of the ratecon, and that's just part of being a responsible and professional adult in this business. Everybody has emergencies that make it important that they get home ASAP. That doesn't mean you stop what you're doing for a day or longer to ponder your next move, or to grieve. Suck it up, get the job done and get home.

    This year and 2 years ago my house and my parents house was evacuated while I was on the road because of the wild fires in California. Much of that time I couldn't reach anybody at home because the fire and power outages took out the cell phone towers. I finished the load I was on, then high-tailed it home empty.

    Sorry if this attitude makes me an A-hole, but my personal problems don't make a bit of difference to clients who are relying on me to finish a job.

    Your as cold hearted as brokers if i have a family emergency screw the load & the company if they dont understand. If i owned my own trucks & a driver called me with a family emergency yep. Im gonna tell them to get hkme asap dont worry about the load. More power to u that u was a tough guy & didnt care wat was going on at home just to del a load that can wait.

    You won't be much good to your family if you're bankrupt from abandoning a load. Not being a tough guy, just living in reality. You just said "IF" I owned my own trucks. Well guess what, I do own my truck and trailer, and if I have a family emergency, I need to make sure I have a viable company making money after the emergency is over. I'm glad you don't have those concerns, but some of us do.
