{July 25, 2019}   The Excitement Never Ends

Last night Bff called me while I was at work. I was able to answer and talk to her sitting there at my desk. I have horrible reception in the building and have to go outside most the time to use my phone. She starts telling me how old boss isn’t paying her or taking the kids, something about Sleeping Beauty and fighting with him. It was after 10:30 I clocked out to go home. The bosses son had come in to do something with the computers, there was nothing to do and the other guy that works with me had come back.

I talked to bff on the way home she tells me how she been fighting with Sleeping Beauty, how he didn’t have the money to pay her truck payment like he was supposed to. That he had been talking to his boss about trying to sell her old truck and get money and he was talking about selling the mud truck. That he took her new truck to go talk to his boss about all this. I said he WHAT? You let him TAKE your TRUCK? She said yes he was supposed to be back in an hour. He promised he be back he wasn’t going to steal her truck. Some how it came up that today is like the 3rd or 5th year of his dad passing. He passed right before or right after mine.

I told her he did not go to talk to his boss, that his boss would not of told him to come over to talk about what to do about her truck or lending him money. I said just like when he was talking to him two different times about my truck at night like this. He would tell him to send him pictures of it and that he would give him a price or tell him what he was willing or able to do and that they would talk more tomorrow. I said he went to get a fix. I said I bet he is sitting at that guys house or that girls house with her and her girlfriend. If he isn’t over on A lane getting him what he needs his self. She said no I don’t think so and he is supposed to be back in an hour.

She messaged him and they were going back and forth he kept telling her he was with his boss. I went by the guys house and there is a camper out there and a bunch of cars. There was a suv pulled up right by the camper and this guys truck. All tucked up in there. I went by a few times, but it was dark and I wasn’t able to see what make of suv it said it was or the plate. I told her that I was sure it was hers but it was in shadows and dark and I wasn’t able to see for sure. I told her I would come get her and take her by there she said no. Then she asked him when he was coming back he told her in an hour. Then it was in 30 more minutes. She asked where her truck was and where he was and that she needed to go to bed he needed to bring it home. He told her he was in in such and such town he be there in a bit if she was going to report the truck stolen he wasn’t going to drive it to give him a few minutes. They were going back and forth about him bringing her truck home her wanting to talk to him and things.

I went back by the house and the guys truck was gone. She was talking to Sleeping Beauty she asked him where her truck was and said she wanted it home she had to be at work and needed to go to bed.

He told her it was “parked” it would be in her driveway but he wouldn’t be there.

I told her yeah he isn’t with it, it’s parked because it is at his buddy’s house and they left in his truck to go get their stuff. He had no plan to bring it home in an hour when he left with it, he figured he just sneak home drop it off or sneak home go to bed you would get up and go to work in the morning and everything would go on as normal be okay. I said it is parked is not something you say when you have someone’s truck and they ask where it is, if you are with it. you say i’m here or there or it’s here or there where I told you or something like that. It’s parked to me means I’m not with it but it’s okay.

I headed to her house to get her she told him she would get a ride and come get it to tell her where it was. He said he would park it with keys in the gas lid but he wasn’t going to be with it he didn’t want to fight was telling her how it is her fault and shit. By the time he gave her an address I had done picked her up and we were a few blocks away from this guys house where I told her the truck was sitting. Sure enough he gave her that street. He pulled it out of where it was tucked in at and parked it on the edge of the yard by the road. I pulled in dropped her off. She was getting in her truck I rolled my window down and said and not time to go home and clean out the fucking house.

Then he told her he was going to call the cops on her because she was in his room and looked through his stuff. Before she could do whatever she wanted in there he didn’t care.

I told her he is bad, he has gotten really bad and now he is threatening cops. I said you need to change your locks tonight so he can’t get back in and you need to put his stuff on the front porch and tell your kids not to let him in for any reason at all. I said tell him he better come and get it and not come back around there. Tell him if he don’t give you the title to the other truck and takes t you will report it stolen. Go to the guy you bought it from have him write you a bill of sales and call the police and tell them he took the title and will not give it to you and now he is trying to take the truck. I said because the guy knows who gave him the money for it and as long as you have the bill of sales then it is yours unless he can show where he paid for it. My cousin bought tires for her ex boyfriends truck one time. They were splitting up and he did something to her and she slit all 4 tires. He called the police she said right here you see this I paid for them it is right here on my credit card statement. They are mine. They looked at him and said can you showed you paid for them? He said no but they are on my truck. They said the truck is yours the tires are hers she has proof of paying for them she can do what she wants to do with or to them. As long as you can show it is your property all it takes.

She got her truck she went home and I went home she went to bed I didn’t hear from her. I didn’t get to bed until like 4 this morning. I woke up at 7 and looked to see what time it was. When I seen 7 I said oh thank god I can sleep 2 more hours and rolled over. About that time the dogs started raising hell one of the kids was up and was getting them. Then I hear a knock on the door, I look out and it was a cop. I’m couldn’t figure out what they would be doing at my door and not at that time. I went and answered the door he was standing there.

I said can I help you? He said who are you? I said is something wrong? He again rude who are you? I told him my name and ask him if something was wrong. He said go get a piece of paper. I said what is this about? What is going on? Is something wrong? He said I told you to go get a piece of paper. I am really pissed at this point don’t come to my door this time of the morning wake my whole house up then start barking orders at me and demanding answers and you haven’t even told me why you are here.

The whole time I am thinking what the fuck has he done? Did he take her truck and something happen? Did he call and say we did something to him? Did he go home and something happen or him do something to her? This cop won’t talk to me tell me what is going on.

I at this point said something else and he says to me they found your car. I said found my car? My car is right there and pointed to the driveway. I am thinking “car” not a truck or suv when he says car. He says you don’t own another? I said a explorer and it is at X 50 miles away I know where it is what are you talking about. He starts writing something. I said oh I have a excursion as well it is at x over there. I know where they are so what do you mean they found my car? He pulls a pad out of his pocket and starts writing something down. Then he says here just call this number they can tell you more.

I called the number and no one answered so I left a message it was the sheriff’s office. I was on my way back down the hall trying to figure out what was going on when my phone started ringing it was my boss from my day job. He said that they called him and said there was a vehicle fire at the shop my truck was involved and damaged and they needed me to come down take passion of the vehicle. I told him I was going to get dressed and head over here. Somewhere in there I missed a call from the sheriff so I called them back on my way he said that another car had been on fire and my mirror melted on one side and something else. It wasn’t much damage at all. They just needed me to come over there.

I got there and someone had pulled a car up on the passenger side of my truck almost against it and set it on fire. They had just enough room between them to open the door good and get out. The car was burnt to the frame there was nothing left in the car. There was plastic melted on the mirror and the hood but not bad. The cop said it was suspisuse they couldn’t get a hold of the owners and he didn’t’ think they had insurance even probably. They were here for hours investigating and taking pictures and things. He asked if I knew the car or who’s it was, if it was here often or what. I told him it wasn’t one I knew or seen around.

I went to leave and called my boss who had called me and asked him if he knew who it was or what. He said no and asked me about the office upstairs. He said they told him it had been broken into. I looked up the door is right over my office door and you could see it had been. His girlfriend works at the salon at the other end of the plaza and she said she thought someone was living in one of the offices upstairs. I told them that she said she thought someone was living up there and who all I knew was up there and that one had just moved out last week. I don’t know if they ever got a hold of the owner of the car or what. They did everything they had to do and he tow truck finally took it around 11.

When they were talking the car a couple came by and stopped were talking to me. She said she cleans upstairs and things. She said that in the office they said they broke into there were chairs that were moved around and footprints on the floor. They thought it was odd because the chairs are never moved around up there and there is just personal files and records up there. I don’t know if they thought they were going to be able to get into the other offices or what. It seems they knew what they were looking for or where they were going because if not why not break into our office or one of the others down here. But why do that and then set the car on fire? How did they get away or what? Why did they park in the middle of the area you drive and right against my truck when they did it? Why wouldn’t they par it in a space or further over in the back?

My boss said maybe because the cameras don’t get you in that area or something I don’t know. If there are cameras why don’t they look at them and see what they show? Did they tell the cops about them? I still wonder if it isn’t something to do with me and my truck too. But how or why, I don’t know anyone around here other than the girls at the salon. I really don’t know them we see each other and say hi and they know the guys bosses girlfriend works down there so they all really know each other. It’s all so weird.

It is crazy it all seems like a bad dream or something. I don’t know, you can’t make this shit up and it seems to always happen to me.

 



{October 30, 2018}   My New Job

I start my new job today.  Yesterday the guy messaged me about an hour beforehand to make sure I was still coming. I told him yes I was heading that way in a little bit. He said great.

I got there and went in a guy came from the back. I ask if he was David he said no Charlie. I said oh sorry, and told him I was there for the interview. He told me to come to the back. As we were walking through I said Charlie I should of remebered that, it was my dad and grandpa’s name. Then he says well David is back here too we own the place together. So it was the other who messaged me and I was talking to.

We went back there was a guy sitting at a desk the guy that came up pulled one of the chairs infront of it to the side and the other out for me to sit.

We talked they ask if I knew how to use google to look thing up and if I knew how to put routes together basically. I call set up appointments for them or set them when they call in. So if I set something two towns over for Friday, they want me to get others in that town and around and then line them up so they just go from one to the next. Not jumping all over randomly or backtracking. He said if things come in why they are out to just call the one guys dad he comes and sharpens it.

They ask how soon I could start? I ask how soon they were looking for someone to? They said um tomorrow does that work? I said yes because I want the job and did not want them to find someone that would if I said no.

It is Monday-Friday 10am to 5pm. No nights weekends or holidays. I am the only real employee they have or have had. The guys mom and dad were helping he says his mom can no longer do what I am going to be doing. So its pretty much been a family thing. They didn’t care I had another job as long as I can be there when they need.

We were talking the Charlie guy said we have other jobs at night as well so this is why we do this like this. He was talking about how and where they go when. I said oh you do when he said they both had night jobs. He said they are federal police out here. Interesting kind of cool. Glad they told me later than upfront. I don’t care for most of the police around here. They are very rude and don’t really want to do their job. Most act like its a bother you called them. Mostthe time it seems as if they are just looking for any little thing to start about that has nothing to do with what your calling about.

Knowing I have done nothing wrong I still can’t relaxe with them around. I always feel like I am on egg shells just waiting for them to start about something. Even off duty ones when they come into work. But I didn’t think twice about it when he said it. I notice they were watching my response and reaction when he said it as well. Anyway they are very friendly laid back guys.

They said they were looking to start someone at $10 an hour and go from there. They said with weekly bonuses depending how many appointments I set and things like that. It being the days and hours it is I am happy. I was expecting them to say $8.25.

I am going to work both jobs for a while. I went and talk to my boss at the beach job as soon as I left there. We worked it so I will work same days just different hours some of them. Thursday and Friday I will work 6 to close. I leave my day job at 5 and go straight there. It is about 5 miles on up the road. I still open Sat and Sun so I am off have my evenings and nights with the kids. I will probably do this for at least a month maybe two. Then I will probably give up my two night shifts and just do the days. I have flexibility there if I really need a break someone will cover my hours once we have the new people trained.

I better get dinner in the crockpot and run to the store. I have to be at work in an hour and a half.

{December 26, 2016}   Just Something Else to Take Care Of

Yesterday on the way to my sisters to meet the kids for dinner I had an accident. Yes another one in a year and half or so. I can not believe this. I have been driving for 22 years and never had an accident and now this.

I have no idea where he came from I did not see him at all but turned into him. We pulled over but then this lady from the house he left came down there started yelling at me and jumping on me. I thought he was calling police he was on the phone then I she is yelling just call the police, call the police. He just stood there not saying anything or doing anything she started again. I said I’m not fighting with you, you all aren’t calling them I will. Pulled my phone out said we had an accident we need the police and hung up.

Next thing I know there is another women down there she was the owner of the car. she was not in it when it happen it was a guy by himself. Well then the cop came I was looking for the paperwork he wanted and she started talking to the police. I didn’t know it she told him she was driving so the cop never took the guys name checked his license or anything else. Then I called and reported to my insurance and it was all wrong and messed up because they asked for owner of the car then hung up when we they were done getting the information. They thought she was driving. She asked to talk to them so I let her then when they got back on the phone the lady hung up before I could talk to her again.

I started thinking about it all later and got the report and seen he was not listed and that they listed her as the driver. I called the cop back and told him this was not right he said she told him she was the driver but he wasn’t really worried about it or getting me the information for the other person who was driving or to see if he was even legal to drive. Told me well it wouldn’t make a difference who was driving although it would if he wasn’t legal. I just said ok and hung up I wasn’t fighting with him it was late I was tired and knew I was going to get no where with him. He told me if my insurance company wanted the information then they needed to get it from her.

Today I called talk to dispatch again and told them I had an accident the cops came the paperwork was filled out wrong. I told them I wanted to talk to whoever was in charge. Well then she wasn’t there so they said she would call me back after she got in and they had their meeting. An hour or so after their meeting I was getting a call. The cop was calling me back. He wasn’t happy he was like I thought everything was fine when we hung up last night I told you I would get you the information as soon as I could. I said no you told me it didn’t matter and that if my company wanted it they could get it from her. I said now i have someone not even in the car saying they were driving and in the car and they can sue me for injuries or whatever. I have some man I do not even know who he is wondering around out there who could sue me as well or anyone else who decided to since we don’t know who he is. I said they have been in trouble for fraud and drugs and everything else already so I can’t assume they aren’t going to try something they already are or they wouldn’t have said she was driving.

He said well she still says she was driving and I told her you had no reason to lie about it and that she wasn’t, but she is still saying she was in the car. He said he told her he wasn’t going to take her or him to jail and whatever but he needed the information. But he just called her didn’t see the guy so he don’t know if this is the right guy and right information I am sure. He started about I could have given you a ticket and things blah blah about the insurance and the laws and this or that. I said well I have the information I needed I will be talking to the insurance offices tomorrow about this all and letting them know that she was not in the car and that he was driving.

She was so worried about her insurance finding out and dropping her and had just left my company and went with this new one in October so something isn’t right. I am going to call both and let them know she was not in the car she was not driving the car, she was not even outside and seen what happen. That she lied to the cop and had it put on the report she was. I see this being a long drug out process and being a fight because I am not going to be hit to pay for injuries and things when she was not in the car and he said he was fine. They didn’t even send a fire truck ambulance tow truck nothing out. I wish the cop had impounded the car now until we got to the bottom of all this. But I am sure if she don’t give the insurance company what they want they are not going to pay out and she wants to get it settled fast so she may just give them the information and get it over with. I think that what I have should cover the damage but I don’t know.

I called the insurance company back last night told them what was going on they said I had to call when the office was open they just collect information and that was it. I have to talk to them about if this all matters and what to do. Over the weekend and yesterday it said they were closed for the holiday or something. When I call today it says push this push that push this over here now and then hold for the next person to talk to. I help twice forever until I had to hang up and no one answered so I gave up figured they must me closed and I will call tomorrow.

I don’t know how I feel it just seems so serial and like a dream. I still can’t figure out how I hit him or where he came from. It dented my bumper in on the driver side knocked the lights on that side all out and bent the fender again. I will probably have to replace it all. nothing I can do until February. I have to get the lights of course but that is all I can do really and I can’t afford to do that even, but I have to.

Her car it broke the mirror off on the passenger side and it and my light I guess smacked the window on that side and broke it out. Then went down the side and dented the doors and scuffed the paint up. It was still drive able they can’t get them doors open probably. I don’t think it bent the frame or caused enough damage to total it. It was a 2011 impala.
