    Heard it was becasue of bad thunderstorms, so basically Memphis from today will get here later tonight, and then since there are more storms tonight Memphis for tomorrow will be 2 hours late tomorrow lol

    We can't win

    Maybe I'll use days like today and tomorrow for my sales lead pitch. "Ship with us, sometimes your package won't show up at all, sometimes it will come after you close because double the work was on the truck"

    Same for us, I don't get it Memphis is 40% of the frieght we get. I hope everyone is ready to bend over and watch those stops counts rise tomorrow.

    Just told were starting 20 minutes early, why? So we have more time to wait for Memphis tomorrow too

    Holiday for us today which means double freight tomorrow. Of course we'll get late freight on top of that. Probably going to see a lot of DEX 01's tomorrow.

    Just drive faster and work harder. That's the way Memphis thinks.

    Mindthegap Ain't got no chill.

    Just another way to screw us leading into a holiday.

    This company is very good at it. Can you come in on July 4th on straight time to help with the late freight?

    This area had late MEMH freight on Tuesday. On Wednesday we got bombed with the freight that didn't make it here on Tuesday. Everything today was normal.

    Had a 2nd sort at Noon today cuz Memphis had another mechanical failure. It just keeps getting better! I can't wait to see how they are going to screw up Friday. (beyond the fact that 95% of the businesses are closed, but we are still working)

    We were told that the pilots need their schedules, "three months out". So if you don't tell them, they don't remind you. Thursday, they had to fly in pilots from Missouri.

    Guess what?

    Someone dropped the ball again, today. No pilot(s).

    Yup. Flying an aircraft is not terribly difficult at all, but neither is being an executive...but shhh, don't let the peons know!
