Monday the fifth is my last training day and I need to be back in Lancaster to wrap this up but instead I am sitting in a truck stop in Battle Creek, MI. We have run a lot of miles this week and brought a load of Almond Delight from Salt Lake City to Grand Rapids. Then on Saturday we were supposed to take cereal from Post in Battle Creek to Nashville. It should have been ready yesterday at 1:00 PM. It is still not ready. Clearly I will not be in Lancaster Monday and my trainer is probably not going to get home in time for his 50th birthday.

This is one of the downsides of this job. Anytime you need to be somewhere at a specific time you don’t make it.
