    I chewed her out, she said it was in her bra and it fell out when she bent over. I told her it should at least be left on the counter. She had a friend give her a nokia lumia which she is using for now, her friend didnt like it so went out and bought another phone.

    At home in Buckeye, AZ. Been home since Sunday evening and not planning to go back out til Friday morning. I realize that I'm rolling the dice (because of the holiday) going out on Friday but I needed the "mental health" break and time with my family.

    Getting both windshields replaced on my truck tomorrow and taking a sim class Thursday.

    I'd whine and ##### about the fiasco I dealt with in Denver on Saturday but given that I ended up with an empty aluminum beer can load that took me home I'll chalk it up to experience and move on.

    Crack smoking, keyboard pounding half-trained monkeys!!! (weekend crew)

    You might want to see if you can get on the Target account out of Shafter ... day cabs out of there, so I would assume they are home nightly and some sleepers.

    Shafter is what, about 30-40 miles from Tehachapi? The DC is off 99 about 5 miles west on Standard Rd. ... If nothing else, see if you can park your truck and drop your trailer there while on home time ... got to be closer than Fontana.

    20 miles from final in Vegas so spending the night at a small casino with lots of truck parking and cdl discounts for the hotel and restaurants. Trying to time heading out as this is a threat load that can't deliver early or late or it's a service failure. Glad they don't add pressure to the job.

    Here at the TA in Perrysburg, OH. Got a pplan to pu in Fostoria going to Rockport for morning. Well, Walgreens took 5.5 hours to get me mt and I had 55 mins left on clock and Dm seemed to think that I could get the 31 miles in that time because it had to pu at 2200. Tried to explain but did not want to listen. He sent a msg to planner and CSR and they said that just send a MAC 22 and all is cool. Now this will really mess me up come Thursday and a decent weekend load. I can never get a load out of Lowes there.

    I35 in MN at a little TS.

    I've been running recap for the longest time.
    I shut down with 30 minutes left on my 70.

    I had a pplan that had me sitting for nearly 3 days until pick up.
    Called my DM and asked about it, also explaining about my hours.
    He set my PTA to 8/29 0600.
    Then a planner reset my PTA to a time before my final today and sent me a new pplan that I could not do.

    I think the planners need to be drug tested more.

    Finished up this 4 stop load on time, went to Wally World for supplies, and got to this TS.

    Finally!
    I was sent a nice load that picks up tomorrow and delivers in PA on the 31st that I can actually do!
    A nice ~1,000 mile run to start the week.

    think it was about 48 when I dropped a load last time I took the reset at home, I wonder who I need to get ahold of for that dedicated account.

    Anyway dropped my load in Manteca and as I was getting unloaded got a preplan to pick up a coke load in American Canyon a couple hours later so I took it and went and got the load, took about 1.5 hours total to get live loaded. Heading to the coke place in Tempe AZ live unload 1300 on Friday. I decided to go out of route a tad and took the 46 to the 99 from the 5 and stopped at the Flying J outside of Bakersfield for the night where my wife drove down and met me for a few hours plus brought my new phone which im so happy to be using now. We ate dinner at Dennys then her and my daughter came and hung out in my truck for awhile. She complained since I parked all the way in the back row which I told her before hand, "I didnt know the truck stop went that far back" lol
    I like parking in the back since there are usually more spots, less people bothering you and more exercise, weighed myself and now im down 42 lbs so its paying off.
