Vasaris, the Fuzzy Dragon [userpic]
Dear H, of other transport company...

No offense, hon, but as bored as I may currently be, due to teh_slowlies?

Nothing offends me (or pretty much any other entry writer here) than notes reading "OMG YOU HAVE TO RUSH THIS RIGHT NOW! NOW! NOW!!!!111!11!1eleventy! I GOTS TO CROSS NOWNOWNOW!"

You want me to rush something because you mucked up somewhere?

Call me.

An emergency on your part does not constitute a stress-filled EEEIEIEIIEAHHHHH!RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUSH on mine.

So. If you want me to rush your entry to the top of my (currently nonexistent, but that's not the point) stack?

Pick up the phone and talk to me.

You are not the only common carrier in Canada, dearest.

The client you are carrying for?

So totally not the only client we have. And with only a couple of exceptions, it's first come, first serve.

Please to be getting over that. The human touch rather than a bold demand in black and white goes a lot further.

Your still bored, but baffled entry-writer who is mildly boggled by the client on your paperwork... and the fact you've usually got better manners. Is it because Monday is Thanksgiving for you (and you've no idea how jealous I am of the fact that your Thanksgiving isn't on a Thursday?)

To all common carriers in Canada who sends entries to us:

Everyone stamps their things "RUSH!" and "OMG!MEFIRSTMEFIRSTMEFIRST!"

And nothing puts you on the bottom of the to-do list faster.

Believe it or not, we're going as fast as we can and that none of you company-centered little twerps is the only company-centered little twerp we have to deal with.

You didn't fax me in a timely manner?

That is not my problem. Oh, you faxed at 8 AM and now it's 5 PM and you want to know why your entry isn't done? Is there some reason you waited nine hours to ask? Hmmm? Oh, you faxed the paperwork to another broker but assumed we'd magically gotten ahold of it? That's nice. Oh, you didn't realize that the shipper didn't send it to us? How sad.

None of that is my fault or my problem. I'll get to your entry as soon as I reach it in the stack of fecal matter that's oozing three inches thick at my elbow. No, I don't care that your driver is at the border. That's not my fault. Now shut up and leave me alone, because the longer I talk to you about this, the less time I have to actually get to your entry. Oh, you want to get bitchy and argue about it?


There you go to the bottom of the pile of crap. Have a nice night.

*smiling sweetly as I hang up on you!*
Your bored entry-jocky.
