I got ANOTHER big tip , somewhere between 150 and 500 bucks, depending on how I figure it.
A half hour drive, to unload a container off a trailer, they were late, it was almost dark, plus thunder and lightening all around, when I pulled up. We all agreed it wasn't going to happen, I asked if they had a car I could borrow, if so I'd leave the crane there and come back in the AM, that'd be a Saturday. So, I made the 45 minute drive (further to home), and was due to be back on site at 5:30, so I got up at 4. Right before I walk out the door, at 4;30, I got a text, they had pulled it off with a loader, as they were tight on time and had already headed back to SLC to pick another one up. I had other work so needed to pick my rig up. They told me to leave the car in the garage, and check the inside door for a note: pinned on it was 500, cash. I had told them $350.00, (yeah, we're low out here) so, anyway you slice it pretty generous., especially considering I never picked it just drove there and back. Went back a day later, unloaded the next one, and without me saying anything they handed over $375.00, no mention of a discont because of the earlier payment, that just never happens!
