you really are an awesome member haiku
I drive a tow truck. I started earlier this year when I moved back the bay area because my career of nearly 10 years finally stopped paying the bills.
I wasn't told when I started however that I would be on call 7 days a week 24 hours a day LITERALLY. so its been a pretty difficult adjustment for me, not having days off, not being able to go to raiders games with my mom, not being able to leave town (no joke) and most importantly not being able to spend the holidays (ANY OF THEM) with my family.
Well yesterday my mom called me and told me that they are going to do thanksgiving dinner 2 hours earlier than usual, and she is going to drive up to see me afterward (1hr+ drive away) and bring me thanksgiving dinner. I am 27 y/o and I have never not spent thanksgiving with my mom. Even when I lived 4 hrs away I would still drive up every year.
It's nice to know that even though its difficult for me right now, the people in my life will make it worth it.
Thanks again haiku
