Damn You Murphy

You know....sometimes no matter what you do, it's gonna go wrong.

You can just bet on it.

Well, my day just hit the shitter. Big Time.

A truck that should have been headed to, of all places, St. Louis has ended up in......Milwaukee.

Yes, supposed to be in the southern most area of my region, instead goes to the northern most area.

And it has the product DESPERATELY needed by my most, ummm let's say demanding, yeah, demanding customer.

I have to make a phone call.

I'm stalling.

THIS....is gonna leave a mark.

OUCH! Hope the customer grows a sympathetic heart before you talk to 'em!

is there a reason why your distributor or driver doesn't know the diff between st. lou and milwaukee? sheesh. they are actually apparently too stoopit to sell their product? even tammi can't fix stoopit. i'm a believer, but come awn.

It is not usually a good idea for a, um, directionally challenged Tammi to give driving directions to a truck driver that can get lost in a one stall men's room.
Just sayin'.

I'll contact the Enterprise & see if you can borrow their transporter... :-)

What kind of drivers do you have working for you that don't know the difference between Milwaukee and St. Louis?!?!?!

Like taking off a bandaid, just take a deep breath, pull quickly and get it over with. Then get a hold of the truck driver, as I know you will, and explain the difference (in the best "Tammi-way" possible) between St. Louis and Milwaukee and present the charred remains to the customer for their inspection.

Then the birds will sing once again. ;)
