    at least you gotta bathroom to use! I LOVE the Pitman run...but hate there is NO BATHROOM! Even though the guy is always cool letting me use it, when he gets in....just a pain asking every morning. I had a fun day of running some empties around in NY....had to pick up a damaged trailer and drop it off in Syracuse...turns out one of the yard guys, in Cortland, had ripped off a trailer door COMPLETELY! Of course, the trailer shop asked me how I did it! lol I was sweating bullets running that empty to Syracuse...called in and asked if they knew if it was legal or not....considering all the "inspection stations" on 81 in NY. Luckily, they were closed.

    Every time I go there I always get the only empty there. Never seems to be many there. The one time I was there and there weren't any they sent me bobtail to Plainfield to get one from the lowes dc

    I never had a problem there. I have went there to get an empty when there were none at Lowes Plainfield.

    oh, it's just one thing after another....aw ####, it's only Tues. I'm just NOT in the mood this week! If it's NOT this....then it's that! Since I had NO FUEL SOLUTION for a HEAVY BEER RUN! I had to go about 100 miles out of route to get fuel. And I was asked if I could make it to Chester yard for fuel...with between 1-2/8 of a tank? I'm NOT trying 240 miles WITH 44,000! Some people. Oh, let's NOT forget about the mountains...never made it out of 9th ALMOST all day! I just give up...bad week....qualcomm won't log correctly! Another day of driving 2 hours OFF DUTY! lol Next will be another breakdown....probably be in a hotel for ANOTHER week only about 30 minutes from my house, the way this week has been going!

    funny thing happened this morning. Stopped at the Chester yard for fuel. When there was another driver, in front of me, getting ready to leave. Guess what? He had 2 trailer hinges busted! I stopped and asked him if he knew about it...he said he did, I just asked, why don't you have it fixed, it'll only take a few minutes. Well, after he told me to "keep my mouth shut" and "he's been trucking since before I was born" yada, yada......I just said, ok....go #### yourself...got your truck number now! was driving a new 2014. Asking Herb about him.....he said the guys been with us for YEARS! So, we can't blame ALL the newbies on this problem! it was a 636 series trailer.....so be on the lookout!

    Herb should have red lined him. That's his job. So is that's drivers job! Couple of our big customers will reject it for that . Lowes was having us weld the hinge pin , to keep someone from knocking them out , and swing door in from the side . Falls in the parking lot.
    Dink , let the wife away from the wife know, and Dan in safety . Don't care how long he has been here , if he's not doing his job , his s not doing his job! Stop paying him! -read- ! Know flying got the joke.
