    Your story was pretty tame. When I was in the Army I went to the Phillipines a few times and I know guys who got drunk enough that they did more than just look. It's been close to 30 years and whenever I talk to one of my room dogs I start out with "Hey dude, remember that guy in Manila, what was his name...Chantel?"

    I hear Thailand is even worse for that kind of thing. Your story will blow over, theirs won't.

    Banned for Life!!! Lol. That’s his ###. I doubt he has the Authority to ban anyone. I appreciate and respect a good Tech. Especially those that are Learning. It’s the know it alls who are dangerous. I see it all the time at Shops and Auto Parts. My favorite is when I ask for a part, they say “What is it you’re working on”? I don’t need help, I need this part. Don’t worry about what I’m working on. You either have the part or not!! Make sure to ask Loves if you’re really banned from any of their Shops!!! What a Jerk. The wrong person at the wrong time, someday might cost him his...... never mind. But it’s no wonder some people snap. You never know the state of someone’s mind, or what they’ve recently gone through. Sometimes they’re just looking for a reason to go ballistic.

    I’m caffeinated medicated rested and fed. Friday delivery didn’t happen. Now I’ve got 2 days to drive 380 miles. Must have slept a total of 14 hrs. So much for running 3600 miles 2 weeks in a row. I’m getting old. Lots of Trucks out here this week, compared to last week. Wondering how long the rates will stay good. Things change fast in Trucking. I don’t think I want to run for the old rates again. It’s not worth it. Time will tell. Looking forward to that fishing boat.

    I dont believe it was incompetence. More like poor training. If what ever mechanic was trained to do filters to pre prime the system. To put a vacuum on the system to make sure the air was purged after. The last part was over looked. It isnt imcompetence.

    Incompetence would be to know that allowing air to get into the system. To go on coffee break and show malice for the owner. Then yes. Yet I think the person may have been busy and just didnt know what was required of the job. As some one didnt go that extra mile before sending you down the road.

    The OM feels that the guberment should pay for all O/O maintenance for the next 3 years as an incentive to keep us trucking since we are risking our lives daily.
