Picking up near Chicago O'Hare started out to be the worst place.
I ran all night to deliver in the morning in Chicago and then up to Bensenville, IL. The dick had me wait on the street and check in with him every hour. He was just an angry goof that had no clue on what he was doing.
It took forever and a day for them to swing the load from the city trailer to my trailer.
That was when they asked me, hey, can we just use your trailer to do the pick ups?
Sure, no problem. That was were I made some friends.
Once all the bonds were made out and I was ready to roll, The shipper Would yell out, Oh Canada! I Laughed so hard the first time I heard it.
Come sign your bills.

I had a CH Robinson load once. New Jersey to Target in Winchester, VA.

Rush rush rush, hurry hurry....

Different CHR agent calling every 30 minutes for my 20 and ETA

I get there and sit... On the street outside the gate because they suck.
I had one broker chase me by phone calling every half hour, telling me to hurry up, hurry up.
When I finally arrived at the destination, Scarborough, ON. affectionately known as Scarlem or Scarberia, They told me I was a day early.
What?
Yeah, you are a day early and we have manpower booked for tomorrow to unload, move in and assemble all this office furniture.
JFL= Just ****ing Lovely!
I ended up taking the load to the yard and never seen of heard about it again.

I started watching Animal Kingdom on Netflix. I had seen it in the suggestions but, I didn't think It was something that would interest me. A friend recommended it so I figured I would give it a shot.

I binged 16 episodes. That is a lot of just watching T.V.

I would rank it right up there with Breaking bad and Sons of Anarchy except, thus far Animal Kingdom isn't drawing out the same shit over and over.

Ontario declares a STATE OF EMERGENCY!

Every morning I wake up and turn on the T.V. and the first thing I see is Covid.

It would' be so bad, but the **** poor choices the government has made and politicians fly around the world an the do as I say and not as I do mentality.

The good news for me is next week they are adding another driver and it couldn't have come soon enough. I was at capacity with the work load I was handling.

The best part is it exposes the afternoon guy that has been walking around telling anyone that will listen that, Day shift does nothing and afternoon does all the work.
That is not even possible just based on the production schedule. The most lines and the fastest running lines run during the day.

Now he just looks like a liar and the asshole that he is.
Schadenfreude! :thumbsup: :clapping:

Yesterday my Father that is in a home got the Moderna vaccine. They are first on the list, people in long term care homes along with the PSW's that work in them.
They say he took it well and he is having no side effects.

I think I am living the real life trailer park boys.

I come home and my neighbour is sitting in his car smoking a few darts.
Hey, hows it goin' bud?
Oh the old lady kicked me out and I am staying with the guy that lives on the corner. He has been drunk for 3 ****ing days. I want to punch him out but I don't want to go to jail. I am just out here to get some peace and quiet.

I say, ya' might be better off in jail.
He says, ya' might be right.

Like I said in an above post, we got 3 shunt drivers now.
Monday and Tuesday was like the 3 of us could barely keep up.
Today was slow for a change.
The shipping boss says, it's slow, you don't need 3 guys today.
Yes we need 3 guys today because if we only have 2 guys today, we will have only 2 guys everyday.
He said I made a good point.
(Thank you, now you can go back to looking after shipping. Shunting is none of your concern.)

Shipping boss sounds like a shunt.

I am sure by now you all know that the plant is nuts and full of incompetence and general stupidity.
Last night "someone" "somehow" busted the dock door. Ok fine.

First thing in the morning they call to get the trailer in the dock pulled out. Ok fine.
So, it is cold and windy today and the wind is just whipping through the non existent dock door.

We get a call, Hi, we need your help ASAP. Can you put a trailer into the dock that you just pulled a trailer out of?
The dock door is broken and everyone is freezing. :D :bonk:

Today I dropped and hooked 24 trailers with no problem. My last trailer drop I cranked down the landing gear, pulled the pin and then went to talk to my buddy.
Then this lady was walking by, and then I don't know what happened and then I went to drop the trailer and snap!! Ahh shit, broke the light cord.

Like they say in Belize, Shit happens.
