    Don’t know. But like I’ve heard for many years, if it ain’t broke, leave it alone.

    My 52 hour reset is up. Picking up a load of produce out of the produce center in Colton. Which I’ve done many times over the years, except it’s strictly a team load and I’m solo. So as I diligently do my job correctly at all times, I put everyone on notice back at the mothership that this load will not be in Henderson NC at 5am Sunday, and to let me know tomorrow with whom and where I’ll be swapping. Oh, and of course we will be discussing the amount of layover/detention money tomorrow morning as well.

    I read on TTR that USA Truck allows their senior drivers to self dispatch, this is going to warrant a phone call in the morning.

    I’m sure there is. But inquiring minds want to know.

    Got back to RVA Tuesday morning. Had all day to clean my truck, and relax. Posted about the nastiness of the women’s restroom on one of our Facebook groups, texted my DM to see if there was any way to get it cleaned. Got no response from him. Bet if I would have posted a picture of the feces all over the toilet I’d would have been immediately kicked out of the group. Apparently people don’t like to be called out because I heard some crap over it (and a few other things) - indirectly - but the sentiment was definitely there. Funny how some people can “call it like they see it”, but others can’t. But, the bathrooms got cleaned, so I’m not sorry I called them out on it. Makes no sense to me that during all this Covid crisis, they were still only cleaning once a week, even though they were preaching safety (Covid safety). I bet you a dime to a dozen donuts that the office staff bathrooms get cleaned more than that. I mean, truck stop bathrooms get cleaned multiple times a day, so.....Anyway.....

    I also posted a funny picture of quite a few of the DMs out smoking because I was bored. It was funny, but I guess you had to be there. They’re all so young, it looked like the school bell had rung and they swarmed out the door. People have zero sense of humor. Got a rash of #### over that too.

    Guess karma is a witch, though, because despite my (somewhat) best efforts, my BP has decided not to cooperate so I am home until it does. Good thing I insisted on not waiting until the last minute to get it done so I could get my BP in check. And it’s been nice to have time to take care of quite a bit of business, relax with my husband and play with my granddaughter. Funny how I don’t have BP issues at home ;) Silent, sneaky thing, high BP.

    Back at it Wednesday, I suppose, since my physical runs out Saturday and I absolutely must see our doctor.

    Maybe stay out of the Truck until after your physical… take a few days of R&R to go in with a calm and chilled BP.

    Yep. That’s the plan. I’ve been off for 5 days now. Looking forward to grand baby time for the next 2 days. BP has been just fine.

    I’ve always heard stories over the years that women’s bathrooms were disgustingly worse then men’s rooms. This just proves it. Just curious why you never see women using a porta poty like the one at the WM yard, or maybe they do and the leftovers are from them. In any event, your typical human being is actually one notch above pigs in a pen. Any doubts just look at your typical bathroom facility at a trucking company.
