That was a close answer but Daniel is right. They won't print out a receipt cause then they would have to account for the money.

No a $50 bribe at the plant won't work either. Food loads get inspected and they found the dirty trailer they will see what guard was on duty and then he would have some questions to answer. He ain't risking his job. Haul a refer trailer long enough and this will happen a few times.

Actually Daniel this is one of your easiest ones. embarrassed.gifconfused.gif

I'm running out of content. Maybe you can private message me some puzzlers from your days?

D-Wash, you're thinking outside the box which is good. But that's not what I'm looking for. The answer doesn't involve money or bribery.

Keep it going!

I would cut off the day & time on the receipt you got 4 days ago and flash it fast when I get to the Mars Plant!!!!....BOOM!!!!!!!....I'm I getting warm Daniel ?

For what it's worth, I meant I would have talked the employee into letting me pay for a washout to get the receipt.

I have one that I ran into 3 to 4 times a week, every week for 3 years and there is only ONE ANSWER. Perhaps I will post is as the 4th installment of "What would ya do?" That might be a fun thing to do and as so prove a point. Whatcha think?

Since I'm a soon to be driver here's my thinking. I would run the 63 miles and get the trailer washed out. The recap from today and tomorrow will make up for lost time running to get the trailer washed out. Maybe I'm just a stickler to be honest.

I talked my way in to a lot with less then half a tank of refer fuel but I dont see away around this one but to drive and get the washout unless you can convince the guy you been sitting for 4 days that's the only other way to get this done that I can see

The one thing that always comes to my mind is communication communication comminication. I would call my DM and Mars and let them no the situation. I would get conformation from the DM on what to do. Ya that may soud childish but a toddler cannot make descions for them selves becuase they dont have the knowledge due to lack of experience. If i am green i dont want to make a mistake when in dont have to. I know i will make mistakes but the DM is my way of CYA. I would get all my confirmations from my qualcom. The time situation i still havent quite grasped that yet. Thats my two since... now i am broke.

Dm:

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.

HOS?, What HOS? My dog ate it.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Since the trailer was washed out 4 days prior,I would assume you were on home time for the days since the wash.

Present the wash ticket to the guard and show him your qualcom to prove your downtime.
