I had a guy break the seal on a frozen load in South Cali, end up late for a multi stop load, shifted the load himself and the reefer broke down. Oh yeah, and all this happened while he turned his phone off and refused to contact me. After he got to the yard in CO, the company fired him and he ran up to WY. The truck then sat for 3 days in a random lot in the middle of denver
