Have you ever spent the better part of the day on what turned out to be a wasted trip that was caused by one persons failure to do their job correctly?
Today I went to another one of my companies stores, 120 miles away, to get an attachment for a piece of equipment. I got there and it wasn't there. I then went to another one of our stores about 30 miles away from the other,
And it wasn't there either. Then returned home. 300 miles total, pulling a trailer, 30 gallons of gas, 6 hours of my pay (overtime, good for me, not so much for the company), all because someone forgot to put the attachment on
A contract when it went on rent with the machine. Waste of a Saturday!
I guess I could have dropped by to visit tlaney1 and made something productive come of the day. He lives in one of the towns I was in.
Yep... that would have been awesome. At least you were paid well!
