    I dunno. I kinda like not being responsible for anything other than being at a shipper or receiver on time.

    When you turn on creekside,come down to the roundabout,past Mclane,and turn in.

    Park to the left,and walk down to where the building sticks out.

    Pretty fast unload.

    I dunno about anybody else, but all my hometime is on the weekends. I take hometime to see my kids, and they can't rightly come see me during the week when they got school. So weekends it is, and it's been that way since I started driving.

    Generally it's fine, but it does mean that if something goes south with my car, I can't get it fixed without either (A) asking for an extra day off; or (B) dropping it off at the mechanic's place and taking an Uber to work (and doing the same thing in reverse when I start my next hometime). Air conditioner for the car wasn't working this weekend when I went to get my kids, and with summer fast approaching I figured I'd take an extra day to get it fixed.

    That was yesterday. Rolled in to work today. Called my DM about 10 minutes out to let him know I was almost there and could he please go ahead and find me a load.

    Called him back 15 minutes later to tell him to forget finding me a load because my truck is once again destined for the shop.

    My truck sat on the lot for four days. It was not giving me any warnings whatsoever when I parked it last Thursday, but today when I started it I started getting Engine Shutdown warnings. Popped the hood and saw that the coolant reservoir was super low. So back in the shop it goes, presumably to the dealer, and I will be getting a loaner tomorrow.

    Fun fun.

    Sounds like it's time for a new truck.

    Why not just fill the coolant and roll on. Keep a couple extra gallons in the side box.
     
    MidWest_MacDaddy Thanks this.
