Put my truck in the shop this morning because my electric system started going crazy, like an Arcade Fire.

I started the day at a Pilot, when I noticed the first symptoms, my trailer lights giving me a lighting display. Lights that are not supposed to blink, blinking. Lights that are supposed to blink, not blinking. Maintenance asked if i could drive 15 miles up the road to the Petro. Of course, I then kicked myself, because I KNEW I should have just gone the extra miles to shut down, here, at the Petro.

I got to the service desk, and was initially told it would be a 4hr wait. While typing me into the system, I started "geeking out" with the car, about Xbox gaming, and online gaming. He then told me, that because the other guy was an @$$, and was probably still sleeping, to go ahead and pull my truck in. Now my truck is going down Electric Avenue, while the other guy gets to wait even longer. It really goes to show, that attitude, is everything.

And as far as flatbed goes........
