I'll tell you what, if you could capture the images that your dreams give you onto disc - far more vivid than anything Hollywood could ever pull off.

Anyway, serious thought about the all night driving job and I nixed that.  I just can't readjust my entire lifestyle to being awake all night long and trying to sleep during the day. Not to mention 60 miles either way to work, plus 12 hours at work, meaning 14 hour days, leaving only 2 hours  per day to do anything at all besides working and sleeping.  Sure, you get 3 days off but that kind radical change to sleeping and awake hours is  too much for me.

But, I did apply at KAG - Keenan Advantage Group - yesterday.  They apparently do some kind of tanker training because they don't have a clause stating you must have x amount of experience pulling a tanker.  I was back at the refinery yesterday watching them, it's just nothing that is that complicated.

Warehouse "manager" has something up his crawl against me - but then again - he was bs talking behind my back telling the good ole boys "we were doing fine without him before he came" and "he can carry his ass" (meaning, quit/leave).  I ignore him.  I work with him, yes, but only as far as the job parameters dictate, beyond that, if he wants to start s***, I have my phone ready to record any of this crap now.  But, they won't say anything around me because ---- they know I will dish it right back to them.  However, at this point?  No.  Just record the crap.

Anyway, the place in Tyler isn't giving up.  I've worked at current company for 10 years, an apparent anomoly in the trucking industry.  They have a road test schedule for me on Monday.

Ugh. Decisions.  Will my company come back with an answer about pay before Monday?  Likely they won't come back with a "fresh" answer for months.  I have so many thoughts that contradict other thoughts - what to do, what to do.

Back to warehouse manager.  He can't contain himself forever.  It's just not in his nature.  He will lash out at some point and hopefully I have the finger on the button to start the recording.  This stuff really needs to be exposed to corporate, who won't ever believe a lone person that will have no backing from anyone, perhaps the other driver but that's it. We are already branded - yet- they knew the nature of this new manager, they know the dispostion of the warehosue dude - it's just a good ole boy's club. I get text messages every day from the other driver, he hates working there now.

I'm done. I have too much on my mind to write any further.

Happy Independence Day to everyone! Beautiful day in northeast Texas. Well, it's hot and humid but oh well lol. Good day to re-read th...
