    Got the call today. Truck is ready. Locked up and in the corner of Valley Power in Rialto. Nice safe environment until I go back and pick it up a week from Tuesday. Meanwhile, it’s a good 10 days of nothing but R&R.

    They called me Wednesday afternoon and told me they located the part, the truck would be ready Friday(today). Both Joe in the shop and Cam in the office told me to go home for my vacation. Joe brought up a valid point. If I picked it up today and had an issue with it, then I’d still be there over a long holiday weekend. Now, if I go back and get it in 10 days and something happens, then it will be time to pack all my belongings up and head back to Richmond for another new throwaway truck.

    Here’s a first, my latest and last DM, whom I shall call #16, quit after a week on the job. I’m calling him #16 for the simple fact I can’t remember his name in what turned out to be the shortest tenured DM I’ve had in the 8.5 years as a driver here. On to number 17.

    ***update***
    I was talking to my shrink, aka my wife, we’ve finally came to an understanding, it’s me that’s the problem, no one else.
