I would think if you intentionally contract a trucking company (driver) with the intentions of not paying him (clearly after 8 loads of not paying) that would qualify as theft of services and warrant criminal charges.
Maybe it’s the two beers I just drank, or I’m not as smart as I thought, but shit you lost me on this story. If you can’t speak it that fast don’t cut it the way you did. Slow it down for us old 48 year old folks! 🤣
