So I'm at the shipper today, sweating away at getting my load set. This dude walks up to me, shows me a picture on his phone and says "Hey are you this guy?"

"Ha! Well yes I am that guy!"

Turns out he was our own TT member, and my fellow flatbed brother CT!

Both of us were picking up from the same place today. We chatted a while until both of us really had to get moving. It really felt like we've known each other for a long time, and in a way we have thanks to TT.

I wish I'd thought to get a selfie of us both. But we each load at that shipper often, so chances are we'll meet again. Was a nice break in the day.

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

That's really cool!

I've met a few people in here, but it has aways been something we planned. You and CT happened on each other by chance, and he was really paying attention. I think that is really great!

Every time I see certain company trucks, I get on the CB and ask if it is one of the TT family. 🙂

Haha! That's funny.

I can't imagine a couple of flat-bedders sitting around talking smack. That's unheard of!

That would be cool, and I'd be honored to meet you CT. I know that Turtle goes to a SAPA plant every now and then, but I haven't bumped into him yet.

I did eat at a little cafe in Alabama the other day called "Tin Lizzies," and my waitress introduced herself as "Turtle."

SAP:

Substance Abuse Professional

The Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) is a person who evaluates employees who have violated a DOT drug and alcohol program regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare.
