We sometimes pick up freight that's been banged about some, with a crumpled corner here or there, or a gash in the cardboard. But we drew the line on this one. These boxes of padded furniture originated in Canada, but had evidently encountered a rhino stampede somewhere along their journey to Austin. By the time we were called to drive them to Houston, they were emittingtheir death rattle. Despite the outrageous rate it was paying, and that it would take us closer to our Holiday Ranch for the weekend, we refused the load.
And still made nearly four hundred bucks for driving down there. Heh.
