Won The Repower Battle

I whined enough that I won the repower battle. The guy who was trying to force me to do the repower finally gave up. This might bite me in the ass later, but I don’t really care. As far as I’m concerned this load is supposed to make up for the last load. Taking it… Continue reading Won The Repower Battle

USX Repower

USX is trying to repower my load. This may do it for me. I can’t afford their bullshit. I had hoped that this load would get me back on track to making some good money. Looks like I was expecting too much of USX.

12 Jars Of Peanut Butter

Just left consignee. I’m afraid USX is going to screw me over. There were some damages and some cases were rejected. That means hand-wringing at USX. There’s a possibility that they’ll make me drop this trailer somewhere because of about 12 (maybe) salvageable jars of peanut butter. If I lose my pre-plan because of this,… Continue reading 12 Jars Of Peanut Butter

Another Grocery Warehouse

Joy. Delivering to a grocery warehouse. No surprise there, but I was kind of hoping on something smaller. I’m sitting at the gate with about 10 other trucks waiting to get in. Looks to be a fun morning. Hopefully they won’t take so long I lose my pre-plan.

Mama went to Charlotte with Doug and Margaret, so Mara left the house key in the mailbox because they didn’t know who would be back first. Well, Mama took… Continue reading Mara Locked Out

Mara just called. She found out today that she’s going to be laid off soon. She’s really down. She likes her job there. Now I’m really kicking myself for the past couple of days. It is certainly time for me to stop feeling sorry for myself and step up. God forgive me for not acting… Continue reading Mara Laid Off

Men's Tonka Toys

I think construction crews are where people wind up when they’re grown and forced to put their Tonka toys away. It’s at least part hangout.

Afraid Of Myself

I’m afraid of myself. I’m ashamed of myself, as well. I sat at a truck stop all weekend playing Everquest II. I could have run this load out and dropped it somewhere late Friday night or very early Saturday morning. But I didn’t. I have a valid excuse for sitting (in that I was almost… Continue reading Afraid Of Myself

Neck And Lower Back Pain

I think I’m just going to stay here tonight and leave in the morning. I never got anything of substance out of USX, so I guess I’m in no real hurry. My neck and lower back is really hurting me. I’ve kind of down-played it to Mara because I don’t want her to worry, but… Continue reading Neck And Lower Back Pain
