Hawthorne, California. We’re stuck at one of USX’s affiliates. We’re well familiar with this place and have always hated it. For good reason. Consider: USX wanted us here by 21:00 local. When I checked in I was told that our load wouldn’t be ready until “after twelve”. It’s 03:00 local now. We’ve been here for six hours already. No matter how long we sit here we won’t get detention pay because this is a U.S. Xpress company. And as all drivers know, no one fucks over drivers like a trucking company. USX has developed it into a systemic art.
