An obeservation for the younger members. Especially true in smaller companies. When **** breaks or goes wrong, doesn't matter if your to blame when things go wrong. Middle-ups have to answer to higher-ups, and often you get the short end of the stick and find their answer to them is firing you. It'* the American Way.

You guys are funny!

I ended up taking the POS truck out for 4 runs today. Ran better than I thought, except for the hills. Got back later than expected because its SLOW!

The semi that crapped itself is the good one. We(including management) wants the POS truck gone.

If they want to can me, more power to them! They'd be sorry if they did. Out Metal Center only has 2 drivers to handle 2 different daily runs. If one leaves, we be "screwed". Think of our warehouse as a FexEx hub. Except we move building materials to 3 other stores in the state. My truck delivers the 5 rib metal roofing orders all over. The other truck moves store freight between the 4 stores 5 days a week.

John, we have a many colors to choose from. A popular color would you believe is "Stealth Black".

We can cut lengths from 3 feet all the way to 33 feet long.
PM on the way.

Anyway, finally got my truck back today. I don't know what the total bill was, but I can assure you. It'* gonna be HUGE! I'll probably see it in a couple of days. Still haven't heard what it cost to tow the thing 2 hours back to shop.
