GP, glad I didn’t blow through my hours to get here, it was supposed to be set for yesterday at 5pm get here this morning at 7 they said they won’t have product ready till 9 or so.
I remember the first time Opie sent me there. It was a great load to get me to my scheduled home time. I let him know I was empty and there was a really long silent period before I got his answer. "The folks here at BRF didn't want to let you deadhead home from there, but I went to bat for you. You're welcome. Enjoy your home time." It's 19 miles from my TA 🤣🤣🤣 He was funny when he wanted to be lol.

Somebody hit it on the head directly, and I believe it was @MIT in a post on the other forum. I think it just came down to the next generation of family not being interested in the family biz, and the older folks wanting to be done. It happens, and it is what it is. I'm glad that's where I started, and 80-85% of my time there was good. I think that's about all you can ask from the company that gives you your wings. I'm good with it 😁

I have a load out of Mogadore tomorrow morning. Was supposed to get it tonight but ran my 14 out on the Turnpike.
So, I'm trying to snag this load going from NC to Mogadore. Usually if there is a site problem it's on my end, because our portal is a joke and it's down a lot. This time, my end is good but the agent assigned to this load can't give it to me because HER Landstar portal is down. I'm trying to figure how this company was ever considered good. They're pretty terrible. Oh well, gone soon. F this place, can't wait.

That sucks. I've never pulled anything out of there, only delivered. Always paper rolls. Man I don't miss those loads. They were always easy runs, but damn they were picky on the trailers. I'm betting I've had 3 or 4 rejected trailers at that place in Georgia (don't remember the name). And all of those rejections were the trailers supposedly inspected and approved for that location by the guys at the Albany terminal. Crimany. The only halfway decent thing about that terminal was the bar around the corner. And that wasn't all that spectacular either. There you get to witness the breed Redneckus Alabamus in their natural habitat :rolleyes-80:

I don't have it in me to burn a Steelers jersey, so I guess I'll just throw it away. Oh, Antonio, what a ridiculous mess you've made for yourself. Way to keep your eye on the prize and focus on work. You went from a team that already had its bonafides to a team that is the current legacy and you can't keep it together? Sorry I ever wore your number.

Well, maybe he'll actually get the ball thrown to him. If I was the QB on his team I'd intentionally starve his stats. Not because of what he may or may not have done. Just because he's causing issues that can mess with the team both on the field and in the locker room. Noone has time for that crap. No matter how my team does this year, I will always respect the owners. Better to cut bait and look elsewhere. Even if it means we're screwed this season, which clearly we are.

@Steelersjunkie it was just a **** pic
I wasn't offended, if I gave that impression it was unintentional. I don't live and die by my team. I'll poke fun at them when they suck, and believe me they are gonna suck this year. My skin is thick when it comes to my team. Kinda has to be that way since I live so close to Cleveland :)

No buddy, I’m talking about the rooster pic I posted you keep saying it was two. I was just trying to make a joke that you looked at my c*ck. It was just for grins I didn’t think you was offended. I was just clarifying.
