Yesterday was quite the day for us; we had a crack in the passenger side windshield which grew quite a bit during the snow we went through the other day so my husband made arrangements over the phone for 10 AM, the man arrived at 8 AM ready to work! I stayed in the sleeper with the curtain closed and played on my phone, thank goodness he was done in half an hour! James then went inside to see if he had a load ready and they informed him that he needed a maintenance check done on the truck but it wasn’t until 3PM! Around 12 PM he went to the office to see if we could bobtail down the street to a store but they handed him a random drug test form instead! He had to take an employees car to town (about 20 mins away) and I had to stay on the truck. I began to get worried when he called me at 2:30 and said he was still waiting his turn. At 3:40, the mechanic finally came to take the truck and I had to wait outside for James to get back. Within 15 minutes my trucker returned. We had been told the wait for the truck was 3 hours, but the mechanic found an oil leak among other problems so our wait turned into 6 hours! James was scheduled a court date in Sacramento this morning for a ticket he received for the company GPS directing him down a truck restricted road. We finally left the yard at nearly 10 PM Wednesday night and still had to get to Sacramento to shut down for the night. We made it to Sacramento at 2 AM and without a vehicle to take him to court, James had to go into the Walmart and purchase a pre paid credit card since he only had cash on him and try to pay over the phone for the ticket, the automated system did not allow for payment with this card, needless to say it was quite stressful to try and fall asleep knowing he had to be up in 5 hours to call the court and see what he could do. Thank goodness James got through to someone who was very nice and tried to process the card amd it word, he is free and clear! We then had to sit in the truck and wait a couple of hours to head to Oakland for a drop and hook. We took the empty trailer to C&H sugar. The building is something to look at!
Thank goodness we had our Monster energy coffee to get us through the morning. This is our favorite; Kona coffee.
And now we are back at the yard having dinner and going to bed. Hopefully we can keep the wheels turning and no more waiting!
