Lame, my current load is picking up tomorrow and delivering the next day. In other words I might not get home until Tuesday or Wednesday... So even a longer wait.

The ice cream will all be melted by then. Hey, Jamie, I just had a horrible thought. Maybe they made a big mistake and they are going to take your new truck away and give you my old one instead. Oh oh!

They are going to use him in recruiting advertisements, we will be seeing a 8 foot tall picture of Jamie with a big smile talking about how happy he is on the sides of all Schinder trailers.

He and his dispatcher are going to swap seats for the remainder of this month.

Dispatcher:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

I was randomly selected for a drug test, and had to take it right away, couldn't do anything else until it's done or it'll be seen as I am refusing.

Aaaaahhhh, so the mystery is over. The guys who said "Drug Test" won all the money!

Why didn’t they just tell you. It isn’t like you can do anything to cover it up anyway.

That wouldn't comply with the protocol fir testing, Mr Grump. Once told, you have to go to the testing place immediately, if not sooner.

Makes sense, but why not just route him back to the terminals, why say anything at all in advance.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.
