I agree, however we had confirmed everything over the phone that they would be taking the load. Hence why i had sent the load tender. What do you do... lesson learned!If I don't get a confirmation back after 30 minutes I call the carrier and ask for it.. no confirmation after 45 minutes and I assume carrier is nolonger interested in the load and it goes back out for tender.
The cat showing his claws, eh...Happens to me too ocassionally but payback can be a beach. Had a nice sounding lady book a load with me a year ago. She was so nice and friendly that I let my guard down and didn't get the confirmation.. Recognizing my mistake some five hours later, I called her back and she (nolonger so nice) said.. "oh.. truck is already covered on another load". So about eight months later she calls me again and books another load with me.. only this time I didn't send her a load sheet.. but did assure her in the best nice guy voice I could muster that "the load was hers" and load sheet would be sent over shortly.. And then payback.. here we go.. she called back towards the end of the day.. desperation now in her voice.. All I said was "My Inguish no so gooo.. wha you say??"..what load?
