Whats a weekend?

To most, its a couple of days to party, recouperate, relax, fix up around the house. For an OTR (over the road) driver, a weekend is when you have two days to get somewhere that normally requires five days.
I arrived in Edmonton, Alberta today and delivered my load. When I called for a reload, I was informed that there was nothing till Monday morning. Great, I thought, I have no hours in my log book anyway. I planned on staying at the Chateau Flying J until sunday at noon then head over to Redcliff, Ab. (suburb of Medicine Hat) to load monday.
I found premium parking, grabbed a self adjusting shower (the weight of the lever caused it to turn and get the shower hotter) and went online. I was set. Then the phone rang and it was over.
In the morning, I have to get up early and make my way to Redcliff. Instead of sitting at a descent truckstop I get to sit at a frigging hole in the ground fuel stop (the difference is that the latter is basically a pump with hydro).
Now dont get me wrong, I dont mind having my weekend screwed up for the convenience of some jackass. It happens all the time.
At least tonight one of my new friends on AdultFriendFinder was online and we had a fantastic chat. It picked up my spirits and now I feel great.

Well, its time for bed so that I can get my full five hours sleep.

Take care, chat soon.

Your friend, Rob

As for the something else, done it. Sometimes this job really sucks but its a job. I do have some fun with it though. Thx for the comments, all are welcome.

Meh, same as pretty much anything else, it's a living. Albeit a rather more last minute and hectic one than some others.. And five hours? Wow.. Granted I've been known to just not sleep but still. If I had my way.. 12. Every night. I'd just need days longer than 24 hours so I had enough time awkae as well

And it was definetly nice to finally be online at the same time! Hope we can do it again soon.

Just look at it this way. when I do get a day off, it means I have 19 hrs for fun.
