WILL WORK FOR FOOD 4 LESS
Once at our second stop, Craig walks to the door to check in, only to be met by the dairy guy, who was puzzled as to why he was needed to unload meat. Craig informed him that he just got here, but there was another guy who he saw walking away when he got to the door. That other guy? Well "she" was within ear shot, and promptly called Craig an asshole, and then gave the dairy guy her paperwork. Sheez, as Craig tried to tell her, all he saw was her back and apologized to her and came back to the truck.
The dairy manager had already told Craig that it would take about two hours to unload the dairy truck, so we hunkered down with Craig taking a nap, and I took to my computer. Sure enough, about two hours later, the dairy tuck pulls out and we back in. After 6 pallets of meat were unloaded, we took the opportunity to do a bit of shopping, and stocked up our pantry before heading to the company yard to await the rest of our deliveries for the next day.
This morning, we had an easy unload in Manteca, CA and then headed down our beloved Interstate 5 to Highway 41 to make our way into Paso Robles. A quick 30 minutes there, and we were off again to San Luis Obispo, CA. Totally loving the weather there by the way. The ocean breeze was refreshing, the air crisp, and the sun shining. Once again, it took all of about 30 minutes and we were finally done with our marathon deliveries at Food 4 Less. Gotta say, these types of runs are all the better due to the friendly, professional employees we encountered along the way. Here's a collective "atta boy" for Food 4 Less employees.
So now we find ourselves empty and on the move once again, this time to Salinas, CA to stage for a nice light produce run. It'll be a nice change from these heavy meat loads, plus we'll get to enjoy the wonderful coastal weather for one more day.
