Who said anything about this person expecting praise? I work in logistics and if a driver turns up early, we load them ahead of schedule if we're able to.

If not, we make them wait until their time. It's no biggie.

I work at a furniture store. If our guys show up early they get cussed at. If they show up on time the customer tells them they’ve been waiting for hours. If they show up a little late they get cussed at. Sometimes you just can’t win no matter what you do.

Trucks turning up early can be a hassle as they are not on schedule. This may cause problems for the receiver as they are still dealing with trucks already on site. Try turning up on time and there should be no issue. The client told you a specific time for a reason and you ignore that fact and expect praise.

Yep. It can be a bit stressful when the delivery arrives early ("Crap, I'm not ready for you yet!"). But that's my problem; I'm not going to give the driver grief just because he didn't hit any red lights and made good time.

It's not as simple as just showing up on time though. Truckies have to deal with traffic, as well as their own schedules. Sometimes showing up early is going to happen.

It's pretty much industry standard to arrive an hour early, if not more, so this kind of behavior can't be explained by the op being too early. But I'm sure what was the reason given anyway.
