I had an incredibly long and difficult day on Thursday. I got lost for over an hour on an army base... it took another to line the truck up with thw door.. My 90 was in eastern time. I woke the next morning and headed to my 01 not realizing I crossed the time zone to get to the truck stop. Started an hour later than I wanted but was still 90 min early.

I felt really drained although I only drove 300 miles and shut down at 230pm. Have 300 miles to my 90...my Appt is for 10am. I ate at Dennys took shower and hit the bed.

I awoke at 8 o clock... oh no.. I over slept.. it's bright out and lots of parking. .. I'm going to be at least 4 hours late!!!! I put my shirt on with one arm through the hole and the other arm twisted under my bra less breast..the guy in the next truck eyes popped out but i didnt care... (I'm female)...I started the truck cause I needed fuel and needed to get with dispatch.... how am I going to explain this??

Looked at My DOT clock and have no hours..what? Yep u guessed it... it was 8pm Friday not 8am Saturday.

What a relief hahhaha

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Rainy, you did give me a good chuckle. I remember having days very similar to that when I was going through my rookie year. It keeps life interesting anyway, and it's always a good thing when we can laugh at ourselves. Your doing a great job!

Lol. Been there before working the night shift. Woke up thinking, 'Oh sh*t, I over slept. Wayyy over slept'. Started rushing getting ready for work thinking, 'why haven't I had a bunch of Irate calls from work, wondering where the f*** I am'. Then it dawned on me: 'the sun is on the wrong side. It's in the West not the East. It's sunset, not sunrise. I've only been asleep like 40 minutes.'

I know what a relief that feels like when you figure out you were mistaken, lol. Unfortunately the adrenaline rush from thinking I was so late made it hard for me to get back to sleep after I realized my error.

I try to set all my clocks on personal devices to military time now.

Wait... 5his story gets worse. I posted that from inside the truck stop... after I removed my shirt I grabbed a zip up hoodie.. no shirt or bra.. no purse aND went to the bathroom.

I get to the truck... no key around my neck... I sleep with it on my neck.. took it off with the shirt accidentally. ..go to the magnetic hide a key... not there. The third key is locked in the purse in truck.

So I spent the remainder of my break waiting for tow company to charge me $100 to break into the teuck. Good thing prime added money to my comdata foe me or I would have been screwed.

Hey the begining of my week was similar... Kinda screwed up... Of course you got me beat with locking the keys inside.

One of the things I like about my Pete, you can't lock yourself out as you need the key to lock the door.

On the other hand, I've opened a couple of trucks for drivers that locked their keys in them.

Picturing Old School with his arm all twisted up in his bra strap.. Now that's funny.... in a sick kind of way but hey, to each their own.

Darn You Paul!

I was carefully walking into a tuck stop cafe, in the dark, at about five this morning when I read this on my phone:

I started laughing so hard that I didn't notice I was stepping into a pot-hole. Now I've got a limp in my strut because my 4" stiletto heel shifted to the side and i twisted my ankle!
