You sort of answer your own question - you definitely could say "I don"t want to." and also then perhaps your DM may just not desire to provide you an additional load.

But there space some legitimate factors also. Friend are readily available a fill to deliver in Texas, but that"s the very same day you"re supposed to be house in Ohio.

Or, you understand your hours (working v recaps for example) are not ideal for a details delivery time. And also yes, perhaps you don"t feel ready for NYC.

But generally those what takes the lots gets the miles.

So you have actually lets say, 1 hr left on your 14, and DM desires you to pick up a load that"ll take it 2, so friend refuse? You have actually to uncover a location to park in the 1hour also, right?

Relaying way u autumn the load and someone rather comes and gets it? Or perform u just ask if someone can go obtain it cuz u don"t have enough time?
