I got a call this morning from my fellow employees asking where I was at. I replied Im putting on my clothes. You aint in the truck? No!, Well then someone stole it. Sure enough, I put my britches on and go to the motel parking lot and all thats there was broken glass. I called my boss and told him I had some bad news and some good news. Whats the bad news, someone stole the truck. Omy my god!, what are we going to do?. Whats the good news, They stole the truck. He didnt think it was funny, but i couldnt help but laugh. I had been trying to get them to replace that truck for 2 years. It was a piece of junk. Motor runs hot, frontend worn out, Tranny doesnt shift right, had to roll the windows down to open the drivers door. It was a 97 F350 4door pickup. I wont miss it at all. I will miss the tools in the tool box, and the 100gal diesel fuel tank and new pump. Our equipment got broke into twice last year within three weeks. Stole all the tools the first time, replaced the tools and they stole them all again the second time. Boss said, put tools in truck and keep them locked up there, well that worked out really well. Guess where all the tools where last nite! In the truck!!!! I told the police if they caught the thief to get my tools back, but let him keep the truck. I know this isnt really funny and I shouldnt make light of the situation, but it wasnt my truck and I hated the darn thing. Losing all the hand tools sucks, especially since I had the only prototype hose removal tool every made and it probably cant/wont be replace. Didnt even get to test it to see how it worked. The guys that have it now wont even be able to figure out what it does. Poor bastards werent very smart anyways, all those new cars and pickups in the parking lot and they steal a wornout, beatup, very dirty, work truck. Worse part was dealing with the boss, and his boss and his boss, talking to the county police and the railroad police. Spent all day on the phone and ran the batteries down in the cell phone. At least they rented me a 2005, 2500 chevy to drive. I was supposed to get a new truck the first of next year, hopefully I will get it a little early.
