My DH is a long distance truck driver who runs with a partner. Lately the company has been rotating them off every monday along with the other teams in turn due to slow freight. This is no surprise in the poor economy and we have squeaked through fine. This past monday DH got the usual call from his partner that the office had no freight and would be off for the day. We thought nothing of it and he stayed home. The next morning, same thing. Now we were concearned. On wednesday I went to take him to work and half way there I got a uneasy feeling so asked hubby to call and see what was on the schedule for today. He was informed that his partner had called in and asked for "them" to take the day off the past 3 days in a row and what is up with that! OMG!!!! We then find out that the partner has been laying out on a drunk binge and calling in every day only to tell hubby that the office says no freight! He missed 3 days of work this week because of this! We are in a huge pickle now! I'm just shocked and hurt! I don't know how we are going to cover all the bills coming in and we didn't even spend more than a minimal amount of $ on Christmas, Good Thing Too! I am sooo mad Prayers would be most appreciated both Christian and non Christian I don't push my beliefs on others and think there is more than one correct way to look at things Thanks guys, you're the best!
