A tow truck is on the way and they'll be taking me back to Nashville. Freightliner has a 24/7 shop there, so hopefully I'll be able to get the problem resolved quickly. Should be interesting to see what this costs me. I've managed to bank a few grand for a repair fund, so I should be alright. I'm supposed to be going home this weekend. I guess if it's going to be in the shop, and assuming it doesn't cost me a small fortune that would prevent me from spending additional money, I'll probably just rent a car and drive home, then drive back down on Monday night.
First, I was stuck on that damn air cargo account which had me sitting as much as moving. Then I get off of that and Steve leaves the truck. Then I get another student assignment in Atlanta that I was going to pickup this morning and the truck breaks down. Oh yeah, and not one, but TWO trips into Chicago, one to NYC, and one to Atlanta: three cities you can count on being a parking lot anytime of the day (and they were), all within the past ten days.
Geeez, this has been a shitty two weeks. On top of all of that, Welf's past two weeks has been worse than mine. We've been a weird pair; she weepy and sad, me cranky and irritated. Hopefully we can find some solace together this weekend.
