{June 12, 2019}   Stuck…..Again

I spent over an hour on the side of the road broke down. I was an hour and a half late for work. I stopped and grab something to eat on the way and took a different route to work. It was raining with the truck the way it is I just didn’t want to be out on 95 in the rain in it. I started to go ahead since the rain let up but I still ended up taking a different way.

I was talking to Bff on the phone and eating my food o. Tje way to work, I stopped at a light and just happen to look down. My heat gage was at the top of the red. I just looked at it not even a mile before that it was normal. I hardly got to the side of the road and when I did there was a rail there. I couldn’t even open the doors on that side I had to get in and out in traffic and fill one jug up with the other in the truck. I think my floor got as much water as the radiator. After getting like two gallons out I was able to pick the big jug up and just fill it from there.

Great all set, I get back in close the jug and I’m on my way again. Nope just kidding that would of been to easy and great. Nope my battery is dead. Not a light, beep, or a turn over it is dead as it can be. By now I am ready to cry. I am so mad and frustrated. I open the hood back get the cables out and do you think even one person all this time has stop to try to help offer a ride to the little store or anything? Hell no, not one person. But they could sure drive by and honk.

Bff was on her way to meet her lawyer she couldn’t come help me. I sat there a while I finally called Special K and ask what he was doing and he came and got me going again. Why are we not together? Oh because I was stupid and said no and now don’t know what to say or how to approach it. Anyway…..

While I was stuck I messaged the guy at work instead of Bff and told him ding battery was dead and I was stuck on the side of the road and if anyone else honked at me that was going to be it. Then seen I sent it to the wrong person. He busted up laughing. As I pulled in and was shutting the truck pff he messaged and asked if I was going yet. I told him I was here. I walked in he said long day I just looked at him.

Then in a little bit he told me I was on my own here tonight. Said he has to go about 5 hours south to pick up a load and bring back. Not sure what all is going on there since I was so late. I didn’t ask.

But this is the kind of shit I am dealing with why he is over $700 behind again already. That is $700 more I could have to put towards a car and maybe have something ready. Why he drives around in a company truck no worries in the world.

{June 21, 2018}   Not Fixed

My truck is a mess, it is losing water but not sure where from or why. I can fill it drive it for days still have an okay amount. Fill it drive it and have none in a few hours. Today i filled it drove it about 50 miles. Stopped at the little store to grab a drink. Came out there was a puddle as wide as the truck and about a third of the was back. I tried to get it home it started over heating. Finally got it home filled it with water and flew to the shop. They see a spot or two leaking but not sure that is all or why the puddle and all. I was supposed to be at work so one of the guys took me and dropped me at work. I had no idea how i was going to get home just that I had to get there.

I never found a ride home until about 20 minutes before I got off. I still don’t know what is wrong with the truck or how i will get to work on Saturday or Sunday. I ask the one that was looking at it if they got tims to look at it what was wrong if bypassing the hose helped? He said i needed talk to boss. I ask him he said i need to talk to the other. Told him i ask him he said talk to him. He said he talk to him. I have heard nothing back. I don’t know what is going on with it. I guess I have to walk up there tomorrow to get a straight answer. I am so beyond done. I didn’t even ask if they could fix it or would just dumped it and left. He said if he did this or that it should work so i left it. I was in tears cried all the way to work. He kept saying its alright its not that bad we can get it fixed.

It’s not just the truck it’s everything.

{June 15, 2018}   Good Thing I Didn’t Go

To work deliverying pizza’s tonight. Since I didn’t I picked the kids up to go get their hair cut. From there we went to get gas. I went to the newer station I normally do not go to. I normally do not even go that way at all. I like the store just out of the way because I don’t go that way for anything and I don’t like the road it is on. To much traffic takes to long to get anywhere going that way. For whatever reason I went out of my way to go there.

I noticed my air felt warmer than it should. I check the heat gage it seem fine. I got gas started it it still seem warm. But the gage was reading fine. We left and headed home. I was maybe a couple miles up the road and looked down my heat gage was from cold/normal to all the way up and the oil light was on. I pulled over to turn around to go to the shop since I passed it about a mile back. The gage went down and the light went off I thought maybe it was a fluke. I couldn’t get across to turn around so I pulled out to keep going the way I was. A few block’s up it all happen again. I pulled in a parking lot. I shut it off started it in a few it all went back to normal. I seen it was after 430. I finally was able to get across the street where I was at and go back the other way. I got to the shop pulled down the side in front of the bays. I thought they had closed early some were closed but oldest seen a couple were still open. I pulled up got out walked in the bay the newest guy was sitting there. I ask him where boss was he said he went home. I ask him if he could look at my truck told him what it was doing.

He came out looked at it and it was out of water. That isn’t good because I had just put water in it yesterday. He seen me because I did it there before he plugged the two spots in my tire. I checked the oil why he was hosing it down so he could check the water and get the engine cooled too. It had to much oil. We were talking about how it was out of water when I just put water in yesterday. He said something is leaking here, over there and there. I said the radiator was leaking but it stopped.

He said why don’t you talk to boss I could go through this truck and have it in good shape for you in about a day. I said I just have no money to do anything to it. He said yeah but you help out up here and things right. I said yeah, he said I can’t see he wouldn’t or couldn’t help you out. I said O know but he has, he has a lot. He said oh but still. I said yeah I just don’t know what to do with it. It is a mess. I wish someone would help me out and go through it and fix it. But I don’t even have the money for parts right now.

Yesterday I asked the other guy if he put air in the tire it was almost flat and if I bought plugs today when I got paid if he would plug it. He said yeah. In a minute I look the other guy is at my truck he is plugging my tire. He got the patch kit from work and done it. I had a screw and nail in my one tire. He was telling me then he could put the oil cooler on and the starter in an hour or less how bad kt was and if it got worse the water could go in the oil and it would be ruined. I told him I knew. But I was at the hands of everyone else and when they could or would do it. He was saying then ask boss and he would do it. He seems nice and I think he knows his stuff and i think he do the job and not half ass it but like I told him I have no money and boss has helped me a lot. I have always paid for parts but not labor. But I still owe him $400. He knows what I have going on he hasn’t said anything about trying to help me so. I figure maybe the newer guy might say something to him, ask him if he can bring it in one day they are slow or what and go through it. If he offers and brings it up he will probably do it. But I am not asking him anymore right now. They have so much going on and things.

But it is a good thing I didn’t go to deliver pizza’s. Who knows what may have happened. If I had I would of been stuck on the side of the rode or blew my truck up maybe. I should of been on my way to work when it happened. I would not of been close to the shop help or anything.
