Very well said. You took care of the shipper who wanted a car for loading first. Everything else came second.

He was well aware of the Car Service Rules, but even more aware of “Rule Zero,” the “Boss Rule,” that your first responsibility is to serve the shipper — that is, send him a car without delay. In times of plentiful car supply (soft economy), he’d follow Car Service, but in times of tight car supply, he would grab anything in the yard that would work.
