In God We Trust
I was sitting in Pittsburgh at a beer distribution after getting unloaded and waiting for my next dispatch. It came across and it was going to Newell, wv to grab the trailer and take it to Brooklyn, NY. Well since i refuse to drive in NYC, Brooklyn, the Bronx , Manhattan or anywheres in that general area i called dispatch and informed them that i needed a new load and i was actually willing to run to WV and grab the load and drop it elsewhere for another driver just to keep running. They informed me they would call me back in a few minutes. Now i just knew i was setting myself up for some serious backlash. But instead i got a load from Newell, WV going to Shelby, NC. It was the walmart distribution place there. A real nice run. Then i went to Fletcher, NC for a load to Hagarstown, MD. and i even got an atta boy from my dispatcher about doing a good job on the last load and i was home by 3 pm friday afternoon. And I have to deliver a load to Rochester, NY monday. So far i am surprised that there was no retaliation by them since i refused a load.
