Sorry you ran into a full blown terminal rat. Yes, there are tons of them out there. Avoid them like the plague. They make my head HURT. Keep doing awesome and you'll continue to be rewarded. Favoritism is real for those who are productive and conscientious.

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.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I always enjoy listening to them for a bit it is always interesting to hear what bs they have to spew. Used to have a ton for the limo/ cab company I worked at, I have spoken to 2 or 3 at OD. One guy who has a gravy run making around 125k in 10-11 hours a day would not stop telling me how bad he has it, and how he has had better offers with companies that know how to treat their drivers but I guess some people are bound and determined to be miserable.

There is definitely special treatment for those of us who bust our butts for example i sacrificed last weekend to run to orland from New York. Got a quick turnaround was due to be back by wednesday morning i told my planner i have the perfect amount of time left on my 70 for one of our landover md runs if we have one so he switched someone else and gave me one which i delivered thursday morning another quick return drop n hook in palmyra got me back midday with an hour and 58 minutes left i got in the office and our dispatchers were distraught we had 2 loads to be picked up from ben moore (a couple miles away) and all the local drivers abandoned them so i said give me the trailer numbers i got this so after a long exhausting week i was there for them and because of these lil things im the guy who basically gets whatever i want including a brand new truck while guys that have been there forever are still *****ing daily and driving 2012’s I finished with 7 minutes left and still had time to pick my kids up from school trucking can work for us if we work for trucking

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.

A 34 hour reset and 541 miles later, I'm 61 miles from my delivery for 7am tomorrow. I would have went further today but didn't want to risk getting into any traffic jams going through Fort Worth TX with only 2 hours left.
