Before I owned my own trucks I waited all the time, didn't matter who I bought from. Try waiting for a concrete truck, late every time.
Pretty poor justification and reasoning.
Not being on time or not truthfully communicating is piss poor management. Not the trucks fault. Not the load operators fault. Trucks and loader operators don't answer phone calls and schedule deliveries.
A contractor with guys on da clock can't be waiting an hr. 30 min tops. Top soil is the last thing you do. Not really anything else to fill in time during the wait, other then clean the truck's windows....
