I can’t believe it’s already 3pm. I even got to work early today and I feel like I haven’t gotten anything done yet. I haven’t even eaten lunch yet! We actually have a cafeteria in our building which is pretty cool because you can just run downstairs and get lunch. Sometimes there are long lines, but at least you don’t have to go anywhere, and if it’s a day that you happen to be really busy, you can just bring your lunch back upstairs and eat it at your desk. My problem right now is that the cafeteria closes at 3pm and it’s 3:11pm right now, so that means I’m gonna have to order a pizza or something.
So anyway, I got distracted this morning because I’ve been looking for a new truck recently, and when I got to work this morning I was the only one on my team in the office, so I decided before I started my work, I was going to look around on Neo Trucks while I had my coffee. Well, that turned into like 2 hours and before I knew it, everyone was here. Whoops.
My current truck has around 180,000 miles on it and it’s just starting to have one issue after another now. I feel like it’s been in the shop more than it’s been in my garage over the last few months. I figure 180,000 miles if decent and it’s time to start thinking about a replacement.
I never buy new vehicles, though. You know the old saying about how they lose 15% of their value as soon as you drive them off the lot or whatever. I prefer to buy them with between 10,000-40,000 miles on them so they’re still relatively “new” but don’t carry the price tag of a new vehicle. I know some people like getting a new vehicle so that they’re the only owner, but it’s worth it to me to save a few thousand dollars.
I also can’t believe I’ve had this much time to write this post right now. I’m waiting for this job to finish running in Mainframe (yes, we still use Mainframe) and it’s taking its time. Anyway, I should finish this up so I can go order my pizza. I want to hurry up and get my work done so I can go home and spend the rest of the evening looking at used trucks. I’d like to have purchased one before winter gets here.
