“We had a road manager who just started. On a rainy day while I was sitting next to him in the passenger seat, he was playing a phone game while driving.”
She was so shocked by how reckless his behavior was, she recorded him and showed it to her family, her family contacted the agency and asked them to take better care of their daughter, to their surprise the agency told them to mind their own business,
“Don’t tell us what to do. This is none of your business.”
That wasn’t the only time the manager drove this recklessly, on one night back from a schedule in a faraway place, she saw the manager put his leg on the dashboard while driving, she says he was basically lying down whilst driving them.
