George & Wendy Show
After a conversation with Wendy, a four-year-old to her Mom: “That lady said he brings everything in a truck, he brought my shoes and he's going to bring our baby when it comes!”
“Miss, could I get you to smell this for me and tell me if it's good. The date says today, but I never trust 'em. Can't smell too good, myself.” / “You should ask your doctor if you have questions!”
Wendy's "love/hate relationship with technology continues to blossom – mostly toward the hate side."
For want of JIT load: "I watched a little kid have a near seizure because there were no Lucky Charms on the shelf. (I myself was somewhat disappointed, but refrained from throwing myself to the floor and screaming, unlike the kid.)"
I have it on good authority the FMCSA will be unveiling their “We are the Borg” campaign sometime next year. It will require drivers to look directly into an inward-facing dashcam every 30 seconds and moo.
George pays a $215 lumper fee, and Wendy gets a good story out of it. "They're now called 'freight handlers,' I'm told. You can call 'em The Queen of England, for all I care, it doesn't change the fact that they're extortionists."
"I think a push mower gives the most uniform mow you're going to get. (I just made Hank Hill pee a little.)" And for lawn patterns to capture overhead attention, you can't beat it.
Wendy details losses incurred directly as a result of the new hours of service changes: "As of the 10th, we've lost approximately $300 due directly to the new laws."
