Mon, Mar 22... Nashville to Atlanta!

By Lynette at 10:26 PM

Today started slow and easy. We were at the Pilot in Lebanon, TN and couldn't deliver until 1300 hours today.

Coffee was first on the agenda this morning. Our inverter is about worn out so making coffee has been put on hold for now. I'm trying to "save" the inverter for dinner time only... the last inverter went on the blink a few months ago and I thought we had a cab fire. So... I don't want to relive that!

With our delivery being made we called our fleet manager to see which direction we should head in... a few minutes later the qualcomm told us... we were preplanned to pick up in Nashville at the Conway yard. Our load is suppose to be ready at 3:30 a.m. and we have to be in Atlanta, GA at the drop yard at 9:30 a.m. It's only 250 miles but we loose an hour because of the time changing.

This reminds me of a funny story a driver told us a few weeks ago.... The driver was complaining about being held up at a shipper's for an entire weekend. He had arrived early and everyone was gone, so he had to wait until they opened again for business... he was telling us that he was going to charge the company with "kidnapping"... his reason... they detained him for monetary reasons! He went on to say, "While I was driving a taxi cab in Atlanta, I had a lot of attorney's as passengers. I know the kidnapping charges will stick!" Sweet... a taxi cab law degree!

Ok... "Detention" or "Kidnapping".... you decide!

Trapper's trying to sleep but knowing he has to get up is 2:00 a.m. is hampering his ability to make it to never never land. He just put Pirates of the Caribbean in the DVD... that should do it!
