    During my first week at Melton Van Lines, our training was comprehensive and fair. We delved into essential skills, including securing a load and mastering the Smith Driving System. It laid the groundwork for a solid understanding of the tasks at hand. In the following week's orientation, I struck up a friendship with one of the trainers, and our camaraderie blossomed. After a day of rigorous training, we decided to unwind over some kava. He graciously offered to take me in his pickup truck, where I got a firsthand tour of his impressive collection of houses and cars. Each vehicle, he assured me, was a limited edition masterpiece, surpassing the Kelley Blue Book value by a cool $5000

    As our friendship blossomed, so did his tales of opulence. On the third day, he casually dropped the bombshell that he was none other than Bob Peterson's son, the owner of the company, and enjoyed an enviable 8 percent commission. His ride of the day was a 2005 G-Wagon, which, according to him, sported a 2020 G-Wagon engine because, you know, his dad wasn't a fan of Apple CarPlay, so he decided to upgrade the entire power plant.

    Curious to test the waters, I casually brought up his illustrious lineage during orientation one day, only to witness a sudden change of topic and a prompt retreat outside. It turns out his father prefers to keep his familial ties under wraps.

    Despite the occasional whiff of what I suspected might be tall tales, we continued our escapades, from fishing trips to kava sessions. Amidst his declarations of million-dollar feats, I couldn't help but marvel at the seemingly fantastical world he painted. With a polite nod and a chuckle, I played along, secretly enjoying the unintentional comedy of it all. After all, who wouldn't relish the opportunity to navigate the fictional landscape of a millionaire's escapades over a cup of kava
