    You know when you take a load that you know is already late, but you need a short haul before the holiday? And then you get to the receiver and are told it’s late and you need to reschedule? Then it’s rescheduled for Tuesday next week?
    I hate those loads.
    This...is one of those loads.

    I convinced the powers that be that this run was doomed to be late from the start, they said go for it, it’ll be fine.
    I says it’s not fine anymore. I says they need to fix it.
    I’m running it up to the warehouse to drop for another driver who’s working next week. (Paid miles, since I played the I told you so card)

    I just looked like an idiot and was awesome at the same time.
    Appears it’s freezing out. And it was doing that fine mist thing, and I stepped up the curb and my shoe lost traction on a super thin ice spot, my arms flung around like I had ants in my pants but I managed to regain my footing without falling down.
    Ok, the awesome part is an exaggeration
     
    Tennesseahawk, UturnGirl and Feedman Thank this.

    I’ve learned that there was a car/pole accident near my home. The house and our block are without power for at least 3 hours as they need to replace the pole. Why can’t these things happen in daylight hours?

    Gremlins do their best work at night.
    The pole was hit by a gremlin...right. Oh heck. Who remembers that awful little car...my humor is wasted on the young.

    It will be a busy week for me, so I’m going to do my well wishing now with a general broad stroke.
    I hope you all have agreeable holiday experiences with minimal drama or trouble. May you sleep well, and not experience upset stomach, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting or painful urination. Consult a physician if any of these are persistent.
    Pass on the left, use your signals, shake well and refrigerate after opening.
    See you in the new year.

    I’m packing up to hit the road again tomorrow. I’ll be grabbing some anti gel and calling for a jump start I’m sure. Sat over a week with negative temps, it’s bound to be a long morning
