    Default extra work running the road

    We being a small terminal with only 4 drivers were asked thursday by the branch manager to run the road this weekend and he wanted all of us to run. I told him I would be close to my 60 hour limit by doing this but would think about it.

    Now he knew that friday that we were going to be a man short and he worked our casual in another terminal thursday until 2 in the morning friday so he would not be available until noon friday to work for us and the guy probably wouldn't want to come in then. We all told him we all would probably run as they would be easy rturn runs. He then does not call the guy in friday to work but evthe 3 of us are putting in OT to get the city work done. I'm home already and friday night he calls around 6 and asks if I'm running as 2 in the morning my rest would be up and I told him I didn't think so as he didn't care about me durin g the day so I didn't care about him moving the freight either. Now what I shoud have done was run it because I would have gone VIA he said and I would have been about 2 hors short of making it by having to work the overtime. I had one of the other drivers call me friday night and said they wanted the others to run when their rest was up and central would set it up. They told him they were not running and he asked why and they told him you never worked the casual and we don't care about you like you don'rt care about us to which he then replied boy you huys are a piece of work and told me you were going to run and it was all agreed upon. The only question is how does it feel to be screwed and does it feel good. I guess we are a bunch of asses.

    Screw them. In hindsight, maybe you should have taken that run and hit the motel when you were out of hours.
