I cleared a shipment for this car today.
Seems like nothing will go right for this shipment. First, delayed in payment to the shipping line cos my daily despatch went down before I can pass him the cheque. Then the shipping line was closed for the lunch hour.. So my container was delayed in getting released...
Then, got a call from the customer to tell me that he was already at our place to look at the unstuffing when I distinctively told him that we can only get ready for him at around 5-6pm. That was only 3pm then. Got a blasting from customer as a result.
Next, there wasn't enough drivers to truck this container to our yard here. Everything was delayed until 8 plus when the small little container arrived. Container was unstuffed and car was brought out. But tow truck was not here yet cos he went for a quick dinner and forgot the timing... Sheesh.. Got a scolding from me as a result, since I got another scolding from the customer..
At the end of the day however, when I saw the exquisite car loaded onto the tow truck, safe and sound, I felt a very weird sense of satisfaction. I have done my job, even though I got a couple of scolding from the customer due to some hiccups here and there..
All in a day's work...
