    Gee, you sound like you don’t enjoy breaking down 5 skids into 30. You should learn to be a team player and stop thinking only about yourself. o_O

    I won’t miss going to grocery warehouses with my new job, whatsoever. It’s kind of nice being in and out of places in about 10-15mins most of the time.

    Yeah I got 26 hours of detention pay at $20 an hour. Worked out a bit in my favor actually.

    Myself and Truck II delivered to the HEB in San Antonio a few weeks ago.

    Dry van. Pumpkins.

    I'm quite certain they inspect each individual pumpkin.

    2-1/2 hours.

    A record that I doubt will ever be broken.

    This is a new facility. They say it's been there for years, but I've not been there in 10 years.

    The old facility was so awful, dudes would literally quit with the truck in a door lol.

    Did more than a few 8 to 16 hour unloads there.

    I used to go there quite a bit, and spent many long days waiting there. I would pass the time by watching trucks hit yellow poles and other trucks while backing. It was just the icing on the cake after making the 7 hour drive from dfw because of all the construction and folks crashing into jersey barriers around Temple.
