This is one of those can-you-tell-I’m-bored-out-of-my-mind posts. I’m sitting here in Jacksonville, FL, waiting to pick up a load of rolled paper bound for Missouri. I rushed over here to pick it up only to be informed that the load won’t be ready for three hours.
So I sat here. And sat. And sat some more.
Then I noticed the sign by an entrance, which is next to a dumpster. I read it twice, certain I’d misread it the first time. But no. So now I’m wondering: Is this so much of a problem that they had to post a sign about it?
Something tells me this is one of those liability-related things like the
Caution – Hot Liquids!
signs we see on coffee dispensers in convenience stores and truck stops. Or, maybe the dumpster is more comfy than the employee break room. I feel it prudent to refrain from asking. At least until AFTER I have the load in my trailer. ;-)
