    did your dispatcher give you a reason for not letting you go by the house with this load?

    Who has the wheel? Do u ask your dispatcher, for a leak break? You contribute to dispatchers drunk authority.

    usa is for the birds. i wouldn't recommend them to anyone. i use to run sw regional for them. what a joke. i was lucky to get 1500 miles a week. ip/u in dallas alot going to houston. they will give me two days to get there. i would go on and get there early just to be told time and time again that the load couldn"t be rescheduled. go figure. thanks but no thanks.

    Could'ent put it beter myself. His dispatcher now knows he's the boss,when it should be the other way around.

    If I have five days to run a load, and it goes by the house? Guess what....I will be spending four of those days at home with or without anyones permission.
    It is MY choice where I park en-route to my delivery....and if my house is not "out-of-route", then that is where I will be parked.
    If they 'ping' the truck and find it is parked at my house, and then want to fire me because of it---GOOD fire me.

    Sounds to me like some dispatcher just wants the driver to "know who's boss". (if you believe the story)

    You're probably at a company that could care less as long as ld gets delivered ontime.With mega carriers,they're more strict and I imagine because of all the new drivers so they can't bend the rules for anybody to trust loads to sit at truckstop close to home unattended.But if I had a big enough lot to take the entire rig home then yes you bet id be doing that.

    You're probably right PattyJ...in 20 years I have only driven for 2 large companies. J.B. Hunt, who never got me home in the 8 weeks I was there...so parking at home was not an issue with them. LOL! And Knight Transportation; who let me park at home, but I had to prove with pictures that I actually had a secure spot at my residence for both tractor and trailer, because I believe the rule was that your tractor/trailer could not be split. I had 3 acres of property at the house, and could plug the truck in.

    Otherwise; the small or medium companies never had an issue with me parking at home, or going through the house on loads that went that way.
