    Yeah, me and Missus Skillet get those too.

    Fortunately, when those times DO come up, I'm able to tell her, "Hey, you got a CDL, too. Anytime you wanna trade places, let me know!"

    That rarely finishes the argument, but it does knock her back to a simmer, usually.

    She, too, has a knack for going there when her timing is........."ill-advised", shall we say.

    I hate to even ask cause I know it will only make me sick, but how much did that bad boy cost you? Ive really been considering buying my own seat, even though I'm a company driver. My boss wouldnt have a problem with me installing it in my truck amd then movimg it with me as I change trucks every couple of years... It may even get him a few more dollars on the trade value, as the old truck would have the original, new, seat reinstalled.

    My last truck was famous for doing that about once a month or so... Used to iritate the he'll out of me. But I learned my lesson with my first "regen" truck that it is best to just let it do its thing than to stop it.

    Speaking of TA/Petro. The iron skillet in Kingman is doing all you can eat fish for good friday 15.99. Not sure if it's all of them. But maybe.

    Overslept a bit myself, but I think it'll actually make my day smoother as I won't fight Kansas City traffic quite as badly. Time to get moving, have a safe 1 everyone.

    I didn’t oversleep, I didn’t set a clock.
    Some foreign driver came up knocking on my door with, “Me stuck, me drive tire just spin and spin.”

    me “Drop air bag or put on power divider?”
    Him “You show me?”
    So I got up, got clothes on, walked back and his drive tire was over that Indiana pothole I showed the other day.
    I told him to get in truck, (Freightliner Cascadia) I seen switches told him to flip the top one to the left(power divider)
    He put it in gear and drove off with a wave.
    Hope he turned it off.
    But I am awake for another day of wasting... Wait!!
    The answer is the same answer as “Gollum’s riddle“ in the hobbit!

    Gollum: “It cannot be seen, cannot be felt, cannot be heard, cannot be smelt. It lies behind stars and under hills, and empty holes it fills. It comes first and follows after, ends life, kills laughter.“

    Timing is everything, and mostly at the worst times.

    Many years ago, myself and a 6'4' friend enroute to New Orleans for bananas. Bonnies Truck Stop, Sandersville, MS. All you can eat catfish for 5.00.We ate up two orders each and the pretty
    little waitress made the mistake of commenting "Bet were full". "Shorty", with the hollow legs said,
    I might take another. So we continued to gorge as she tried to get us done.
    Comimg back next night, the sign was gone.
