Generally Angry

I hope I can cool down a bit before I get home. I’m mostly angry with Countrywide, but I’m mad at Mara, too. I told her from the start that if she sent money to Countrywide to send it registered mail so that they’d have to sign for it, thus proving that they got it.… Continue reading Generally Angry

Maggots At Countrywide

Well, those fucking maggots at Countrywide are trying to do exactly what I warned Mara about. They wouldn’t process the check Mara sent them. Now they’ve filed a motion to dismiss the stay against them because they say they never received a payment. Mara sent them two checks. She sent the second when they never… Continue reading Maggots At Countrywide

Fall Blooming

This had not occurred to me until just now, but aren’t some of the trees starting to bloom with their leaves already their fall colors? Or have they done this every year for the last 40 years and I just didn’t notice?

Repetitive Stress

My hand is feeling a little better lately. I’ve been very careful with it. I don’t even know if I’ve mentioned it or not.

Impatient On A Friday

Well, it’s not good that the driver of the 2nd truck is over here shooting the shit with the guy who came in after me. That means that his load, which is packaging (mine and the first truck’s is/was beverages) is going to take longer than the first truck. Okay, so I’m impatient. It’s Friday,… Continue reading Impatient On A Friday

Nervous At Consignee

Well, I was afraid of how long it was going to take at consignee, but there were two trucks in front of me and they knocked the first one out in about 30 minutes. I might get out of here reasonably early. I’m crossing fingers that Epes doesn’t do anything creative. Please just get me… Continue reading Nervous At Consignee

Stepping Up

Heading on in to delivery. I wound up crashing about sixty miles out. You’d think I’d be getting more sleep than I have been, given that I’ve been running shorter trips this week. But it just hasn’t worked out that way. I was text messaging with Mara until 01:00. I mentioned that I was thinking… Continue reading Stepping Up

A Special Woman

Something’s been eating away at me today. The Epes driver I talked to this morning was talking about his wife, and how it took a special woman to “hold down the fort” while he was on the road, and how his wife kept the house clean and generally took care of things at home. I… Continue reading A Special Woman
