    Well.
    This help out load, by a broker I haven’t worked with in the past, has now informed me, they can load me after 1500.
    And it delivers today, as the place is 24/7.
    I told him it’d be either today or tomorrow, as 1. We aren’t loaded yet.
    2. Midnight counts on tomorrow.

    But.
    He’s given me a reload back within 70 miles of home...
    Said he does 10-12 of these a week.
    So...no pressure?
    This might work out, but we know, mites aren’t that big.

    I was two hours late to the drop.

    Got hooked up, start pumping, product in the pump, hose heavy, all good.

    After pumping for 40 mins, the suspension air gauge hasn't moved.

    The tank is still full. Call the receiver......

    "Did you check for flow?"

    "Yeah. There isn't any. Something must be wrong with your pump"

    Go back and double check.

    Turn pump off, cycle hyd valve, cycle receiver tank valve, resume delivery.

    Blow it off in 35 mins. Unfortunately, it's shift change.

    This place has strict QA. They have to verify the tank empty, and watch me unhook. It also takes a long time for the sample to clear QA.

    I've been here 2:39, still waiting for Mister Second Shift to come watch me unhook.

    I got 1:02 left, and I gotta go.

    At least my WIIS reading is caught up.......

    We’re glad to be of service to help occupy your time and take your mind off things for at least a few minutes.
    Maybe even this will help.
