53 feet later

We filled up a 53 foot Semi.  I never thought I would say that.  Crap crap and more crap is what we have.  Well, not really the movers wrapped everything and when I say everything I mean litterally everything.  I left the kitchen for a few minutes and the next thing I knew my junk drawer was packed.  Oops oh well.  I will post pictures and other stuff once I find some free time.

    See if you unpack dirty dishes. In my AF move to MD, I was cleaning up the kitchen and the movers arrived. I took a quick potty break, came back (literally 3 minues later) and they’d wrapped the skillet with scrambled egg residue and all the damp dishes from the drainer. They complained when I made them unpack – my stuff was going into storage for 2 months during the summer, and I was NOT going to have insects, rodents and mold in my stuff.

    Oh, and they packed the RACKs from the oven, too. No requirement to have brains in the moving industry.

    And when my stuff finally got to me – I had 4 chairs I’d never seen before, 4 snow tires suitable for a monster truck and an extra guitar. I had to call a supervisor to make them take it away.

    Morale of the story – join the military, move and get free stuff!
