What a friggin' bitch!

So tell me what you think.

Last night I was showered, fed, parked (I did this first) and had planned to sit in Edmonton till sunday afternoon and then drive to Medicine Hat for monday morning. At around 530, I received a phone call saying my empty trailer was needed in Medicine Hat on saturday.
I woke up early saturday and hit the road (with a splitting head ache) for Medicine hat. I was half way there when i decided to call the freight yard and confirm i was on my way. Thats when i was informed that 'No, your trailer isnt needed till monday'.
I was polite and said 'super'. Now im pissed. My whole weekend was fucked over by some douche bag for no reason.

Am i over reacting?

Anyway, im now in Medicine hat, trailer dropped. I treated myself to a nice supper (chinese) and found an internet signal to use. Im happy now. Still have that headache though. Maybe I need sleep.

welcome to the trucking industry. that work for free shit is why I no longer am driving either as an company driver or an O/O. I miss the road but at 50 years old refuse to work for less than minimum wage.

Thanks for the input. There are days I would change my truck for a bus ticket home but there are good times too. Im more tired of the BS than trucking. I was going to do the Edmonton/Medicine Hat drive either way. I was just pissed that i didnt have saturday off. Instead, I have sunday off. Same shit...different pile. lol.

Ew. That's terrible. I mean we both know how much I approve of leisure time and keeping things laid back. I'd be beyond pissed. But then, I'm not very patient about some things so...
