Today started with a fast trip to go to Missouri for my job. But I got to where I was to pick up and the freight wasn’t there.(I haul for a package company. Within 300 miles of Indianapolis) So seems the load they sent me after had been sent out the day before on a national logistics company. It had arrived and been signed for by 11:21 this morning. Before they had even contacted me but the message had not got to the right people.
So I go to the the home office e where they tell me that they don’t have anything. So I get almost home to find out they have a load if I want it going up by Fort Wayne. So I go back get the package at rush hour and head North.
Traffic is horrific I get into bumper to bumper traffic and have to hit my brakes to keep from hitting the guy in front of me, who is avoiding the semi in front of him. But the girl behind me doesn’t see me hit my brakes. So she hits me.
So I spend the next hour dealing with the paperwork and the cop. Who puts the wrong insurance down on the report.( that is going to be a hassle to straighten)
Then I spend another hour trying to get past the local concert venue that must have had a Really Big Show( to quote Ed Sullivan)
So I get to my destination only 28 mins late. (The customer wasn’t upset thank goodness.
And I get back into town just in time to deal with the traffic from the concert that has just let out.
So what makes this a blessed day?
Well the customers were not Unhappy they each got the packages they needed. Both will use us again.
As far as they accident I go e praise to God for no one getting hurt. In that traffic it could have been a massacre.
And I truly hope the concert was good for as much traffic that was going to and from it.
So I guess it’s a matter of perspective. What I learned was don’t panic and give God the praise even when the worst is happening. It will work out one way or another.
Maybe not the way you want but it will work out.
