  1. LB log - 2016 Week 38

    First full week of work is at an end, and I'm glad to report having done so safely. Otherwise at this very moment I'm extremely tired and ready to pass out where I sit. Being sick this whole week probably doesn't help matters.

    If I have time to do so, perhaps I'll write more stuff here.

    Despite the week's disease at hand, home sessions were basically OK.

  2. LB log - 2016 Week 37

    There was a substaintial wait in the DMV office this Tuesday - when I came in to take my number card, I was at 35 and the number just being called to the desk was somewhere in the 50s. A cursory look around the room was enough to know that there were indeed much fewer than 80 people in waiting, but it still took a while for the numbers to roll up to 100 and start again. During the wait I had ample time to run through my flashcards twice more, and despite the affirmation that I still had retained ...

  3. LB log - 2016 Week 36

    My third week of debaucherous unemployment is coming to a close, right as a holiday weekend comes. How fortunate. What is actually fortunate is that my jobless days should soon be at an end, as I've conducted a drug and driving test for a new potential employer. All routes are within a 100 mile radius of the terminal. Everything is drop and hook. It will be mandatory to get my hazmat endorsement on the license now, so it's a good thing I've been studying during all this vacation time. One potential ...

  4. LB log - 2016 Week 35

    By Tuesday evening at about 8PM or so, I had done everything in the day I wanted to do. Exercised for a while, got caught up on the Japanese flashcard study queue, played some songs, all the things which I look to do on a normal day. With everything done, I looked around in the main room and became immobile over the realization that I was basically free to do anything I could want to do at that point and yet I couldn't think of anything which felt particularly desirable to do. Writing? No, that ...

  5. LB log - 2016 Week 34

    I have learned two valuable lessons this Tuesday. The first is that I cannot take CDL endorsement tests without having the actual physical driver's license in hand. This means that my search for a new job is effectively dead until it arrives in the mail. They gave a timeframe of up to twenty business days for it to arrive. Let's hope for less. The second lesson I learned that day is that I need to clean up yard clutter before it gets too long, because bad things can happen like a nest of bees infesting ...

    The job did in fact make good on its future claim and made me the contract offer, which presumably would have gone into effect next week. I was presented with two choices. One choice had me work four days per week, with three of them having my home time be 1230PM at earliest and each of them subsequently require me to wake up at 830PM the same day to begin the next day's route. Bear in mind that no fewer than one out of every four days I've worked with them so far, I have run into delays. The other ...

  7. LB log - 2016 Week 32

    I have a long weekend, but the job has tried to have me come in throughout the break regardless. I didn't work today, which makes this the first Saturday that I haven't worked in a very long time. Possibly a year, if not more. I'm not scheduled to come in until the 10th. I have refused their calls to have me do more work in light of the last two days of the week I have coming up; they have me working from 1130PM until 1230PM twice in a row. This is after I had the sit down discussion with that senior ...

  8. LB log - 2016 Week 31

    This has certainly been a fun first week for the new job.

    Taking 70 minutes to get home one day rattled me rather strongly, and then the next work day had me leave the house at 1AM and not return until 7PM, after which I had to leave the next day at 2AM for the next day's work. I can certainly empathize with the other person who helped me get hired here, only to do the same for himself and subsequently already quit. I guess squeaky wheels get greased at times, though, because when ...

  9. LB log - 2016 Week 30

    As of this specific moment I am officially unemployed. I will receive a call at some time in Monday to determine where and when I'll report to the first day of the new job on Tuesday. It probably will be a 3AM start, on the assumption that I'm going to essentially be thrown right into the task. I spent this week with my now former company as an assistant to other drivers on my old routes - both of them, being the city route and the training route which came about today. I was hoping to have a chance ...

    My last week with the present job is on the immediate horizon. I'm officially suspended from driving the route now. I have a new job already lined up and have given appropriate notice to both employers that this next Saturday will mark the end of my employment. In the meantime I have rode along with the new driver the entire week, and have essentially been training my replacement how to run it. (In truth, what appears to be potentially happening is that he will escort the person who will take the ...

  11. LB log - 2016 Week 28

    300AM Wednesday morning. I'm leaving from my third stop and I see the wind starting to pick up and a few drops of rain hit the windshield. It's been dry and hot for the past few days. Within a few moments the rain becomes stronger and reaches a steady rate, but I still take a while to even start using the windshield wipers as they tend to leave streaks and could cause fogging if the temperature imbalance is great enough. I maintain a 60 MPH speed. It's windy, but I've driven in windier. It's rainy, ...

    My usual routine for arrival at home after a day of work is to take the shoes off right at the door, where there's a doormat, then proceed to remove the work clothes and leave the work pants on the ground at the end of the kitchen table where I usually sit for meals. The job gets my clothes rather dirty and it's best to not take the clothes into a bedroom where the grime could unnecessarily spread. Tuesday evening's discovery was that it wasn't just dirt which could spread. Earlier that day I had ...

    It's halftime.

    My younger niece is having a baptism soon, and it's summer. I was due for a haircut. I went to have it done at the same place I did last time, which is at a point that's on my driving work route. It's a pretty small farm town. There's an area of more gravel than pavement in the rear of the parking lot where trucks sit, and I'm leaving from the store to return to my vehicle. I unlock the passenger's side first, then begin to walk over to the driver's side to leave. I ...

    More late fun at work this week, during the first half of it at least. The last two days were better, though freight and return volume fluctuations were enough to ensure I didn't get back home particularly sooner today or yesterday than the other days. Happily, there's not much else to report on that front. Though before leaving this subject I'd just like to say that I do feel sorry for skunks. Their field of vision is ten feet and they're black colored, so they have basically no chance to live ...

  15. LB log - 2016 Week 24

    Work was too long this week, ends on a hot weather note, I signed a false name on a petition for us all to be paid more (which had no specific reason behind the demand), I'll finish this post after going to see the new dumb video game movie with my wife because we rarely do anything together lately, and I have some D3 bullshit to tend to after all of the aforementioned. Oh and some guy was rude to me on another board. Who am I? No idea, man. You got me.

    Well now that I'm back from ...
