    Dude, you're not lying.

    So, the Volvo I stole was crap. My truck was battery dead AGAIN this week so I couldn't take it. Shop is closed on weekends in Memphis. Anyways, about am hour from little Rock, truck starts acting crazy saying check IGN FUSE. Long story short, I pull over at the Gum Springs exit and ULTIMATELY have to wait on wrecker. Took 2.5 hours for him to show up while I'm trying to rest in a day cab.

    He does all the stuff he needs to and we head to Texarkana to get another truck. When we get there, it's POURING DOWN RAINING. I got soaked. My keys didn't work for any other the complete trash ragged gliders there. I ended up stealing a new LT International automatic sleeper. It was either that, or 10 speed manual sleeper Freightliner. I'm not taking a manual.

    Somebody is going to be pissed with me, but oh well man I had to do what I had to do. 12+ something hours to go 475 miles!!!!!!!!

    Not much you can do on a Sunday when no ones around. They’ll just hafta build a bridge and get over it. It’s always frustrating when the people who “make the decisions” don’t have an answer and kind of leave it up to you, then you hear from them Monday about how whatever you did was wrong.

    I'll just say I didn't have any other keys. I'm not taking a truck with literally dirt everywhere in it.
