I’ve been had. Nothing I can do about it either. No sense even telling dispatch. Or anyone else. Still got the receipt. Evidence of my foolishness. Call in empty, I still need that steak and a motel. What can you do? I’m experienced. I’ll find another $50 down the road somewhere.
The drill sergeant/dispatcher is on the phone. “I need you to get over to River Rouge for a load of wallboard. They stop loading at 4. Hope you didn’t spend that $50 all in one place.”
Matter of fact I did.
