Well one of my semi trucks broke down outside of Bowie TX.

Travel Centers of America mobile service charged me 650 bucks to do nothing but tell me I need a fuel pump...

I tell them okay how much...

(TA) "Uh we don't do that kind of service..."

?!?!?!?!? WTF:confused:.

So i keep looking and find another mobile service company about 90 miles out from where my driver is stranded.

They want more than 800 plus fuel to go and fix it...

So I say fack it and start loading up tools and buy the pump 180 dollars.

My Dad says fack it I'll come too.

My regular mechanic that works on my truck says fack it I'll come too...

So all three of us are currently on our way and passed midland about 40 minutes ago.

Looks like it's gonna be a loooong night...:patriot:

Might as well do it myself and have a mini vacation...sucks for my girlfriend though...because of valentines and $hit...

Grand Prairie Hooters here I come!!!

Yeah my guys don't. Im a small company. Oh and my guys are only out 5-6 days on the road and 2-3 days at home. .36 per mile.

Not a bad deal when everyone in El Paso pays .28 per mile and leaves driver out for a month at a time.

I keep my trucks running in tip top shape and this is the first time A truck has broke down on my in over a year.

$hit happens I guess.
