Told me there was a "problem" and put me on the phone with the human resources director. As I waited to be told there was a reason I was going to be rejected after being accepted, I started thinking about Wilson Logistics.... and then I was told the problem was the training building in Burleson was being torn down and if I wanted to stay on track for the same training date, I'd have to go to Wisconsin.

That's not a "problem" in my book, that's a solution! And I've never been to Milwaukee so it all works out.

It's not like I'm not going to be driving all across the country soon, anyway, right?

I'm loving the adventure.

Burleson was the worst Millis terminal facility when I was there. Not enough room, dusty, hot (Texas), and poorly laid out.

Which terminal in Wisconsin?

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

I don't mind telling you when she immediately put me on the phone with the head of human resources, I thought it was over.

I live in Texas so I was already thinking about the heat at school, so now that's one less thing to worry about.

Awesome! That was my favorite terminal, and favorite shop, both.

I honestly feel better about it. I'm trying to wrap up an ugly divorce and getting out of Texas is an actual relief. It should be a nice drive.

AND fewer 100plus degrees days,to boot.

I also just remembered that there is a truck stop right across the road from the terminal with an okay restaurant.

With the COVID craze now, I don't know if it's open for serving food, though.
