I've said this before, but they might as well call lumpers extortionists for the amount of money they charge. On Sunday morning, at their first stop in West Sacramento, after checking in, Craig was informed on what the lumper fee would be. At that point in time, Craig wished he would of thought about getting a ComCheck when they received the dispatch on Friday afternoon, but then, they had the two bad tires to deal with, and being a self confessed "can only do one thing at a time male", any thoughts of thinking ahead would have been my job, but I was home and not on the truck, so that left Craig in a bind.
Needless to say, when he was told the fee would be $250.00 he had to do some quick thinking. Luckily, Craig worked in the West Sacramento area for almost 30 years, so he knew there was a mini mart not too far away. Off on foot he went, and arriving at the ATM machine, then finding out it would only spit out $200.00 dollars. Needing more money, he went on the hunt for another location with an ATM and found one at a gas station further down the road, but their ATM was not working.
