We’re number 1!
Amazingly we are still at home. It’s a true sign of how the economy is doing that They-who-must-not-be-named (TWMNBN) has so little freight they aren’t even bitching about the fact that we’ve been home a total of 10 days now. We were supposed to head back out on Friday but we had to put the brand new truck in the shop on Thursday and they didn’t get it done until late Sunday night. Obviously, if you’ve read more than like four posts here in Hag-land, you know that we didn’t mind in the least sitting at home waiting all weekend to get the truck back. We finally got the call this morning that the truck was finished. After we picked it up, I called dispatch to let him know we could head out whenever he needed. That’s when the universe as we know it flipped upside down…
When I assured Uriah, our dispatcher, that — as usual – we were in no hurry to head out from home… Uriah actually said, “that’s why you guys are my favorite team.” What? WE are Uriah’s favorite team?
I guess things are pretty bad at TWMNBN and freight is really seriously down right now. Uriah said that most of his teams are all over him all the time for more miles and he just doesn’t have any miles to give them. But we never — ever — complain about sitting around or ask him for more miles. That’s why we’re suddenly the new darling team of his board.
Hurrah!! Finally the chronically lazy have their day in the sun! So we may be heading out in the morning… or maybe not! Oh it’s all so very exciting. I have to admit that I’m actually ready to head back out but somehow it seems un-Hedon-like to not cheer lustily for the stay-at-home-one-more-day possibility. There is just so much more tv to watch and jeer in the next 24 hours. Already this time home I’ve watched a show where female porn starts are competing in a reality show to prove they can run a legitimate business.
And we watched a marathon of another show where budding “actresses” are trying to win a part in the horror movie “Saw 6″ by competing in a reality show and screaming a lot while over-acting and back-stabbing the other women. But I think one of my favorite shows this time home was a handful of washed-up D-list celebrities competing to earn their own reality show on Fox Reality Channel. The ones I recognized were Kato Kaelin, that woman who was once married to Danny Bonaduce, and that Bingham girl with the really huge boobs who was on “Surreal Life” a couple seasons ago. I mean seriously? Does anybody really give a shit? I guess they must cause Fox said they got lots of votes for the finale. In case you’re burning with curiosity… the Bonaduce woman won her own show. I hope it’s on the air before we get home next month.
Will we head out tomorrow? Stay home another day and waste even more time watching crappy tv? Stay tuned…
