When trust is a two way street!

Grabbed the mail in town yesterday, see there is a envelope from the people Iíve been shipping feed peas to.
Opened it at home, instantly struck me the cheque was for considerably more than my swag thought it should be.
Got to studying the loads, none of them matched the four actual hauled weights, all of them much higher. Hmm.
Laura asks, what are you going to do?
Well, Iím not going to cash this and Iíll call the gentleman. My bigger concern is some else got a cheque for my, much less, feed.
All of our communication re the loads had been by text but this requires faster action.
Ended up leaving a message anyway, I was actually laughing as I left it.

Here is the entire text message I received at 2:38 this morning:

Hi Don I got your message I am in Holland just cash that check we can figure it after I com back and correct it with the next one

Itís about a 15,000$ over payment!
Not sure what Iíll do in spite of the ok to just cash it.
Lifeís a bitch!

Well, if it bothers you that much, send it over to me! Don't want you to have a guilty conscience.


It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Few yrs ago I got a cheque from a pulse processor that was about $100,000 more than it should have been.

And????????????


How come when this happens to me, it's the other way around?
Me: "I think you need to check the math on those loads I hauled, seems a little off."
Buyer: " I got looking around, turns out there are more deductions we can take off now."

What is it about the pulses...

Month ago I shipped some peas into the states and they got delivered to a third party at the behest of the buyer. My less that 1% dockage went to 10%! I had kept a sample and have bins of the stuff remaining. Heck I had seed cleaned from this lot and the clean-out wasn't 10%. Offered to pay the guys gas to come see for himself...ha ha. They knocked it down to 1% right away and we have another load going next week....direct!

Most people are trustworthy, but not all.

Funny, the previous cheque had missed the only load I hauled with my smaller, pos Cat engined Freighliner.
Really no point to this post, I just appreciate any opportunity to call my Cat engine a pos!

Told them and sent new cheque to me, not even a thank you. Almost wished I just cashed it.

Puzzle solved!

Friend dropped by for coffee, when shown settlement took him less than 20 seconds to ask
Is this the gross weights, trucks/trailers had become peas?

Ah ha.

Canít believe I missed that.

A few yrs back I was checking my business credit line and it had an extra $100k of room on it. I asked the teller and the manager what this was, if it was real. They told me yup it was real and authorized even though I never asked for it. It exceeded the equity backing it. It sat there for months until finally I got curious and withdrew it. Well holy **** you never saw so many calls coming from the head office and demanding it be returned immediately. Guess withdrawing it set off alarms somewhere.

Not as high dollar as the rest, but years ago when I was working in a welding/machine shop we dealt with the local Hutterites fairly regular for steel sales. Andy, the boss would often come in once a month and pay cash. One month a couple extra hundreds were in the pile and we didn’t catch it until we double counted at the end of the day. We set it aside and the next time he was in told him what happened and gave him his money. He said “you could have kept it and I would never know. A crooked man can get through the land, but an honest man can pass again” his son was in charge of the welding/fab on the colony and next time he was in he had wine and pies for everyone.
