What’s worse than breaking down, on the Interstate, on a trip with the family? Maybe one of the kids getting sick. But the transportation breakdown is close to the top of the list.
Monday, we received a desperate phone call from a business owner. His company van had broken down on the Interstate and was towed to a nearby Auto Service Center, Good. Well, almost, the Center could not diagnose the van till Thursday. He had a perishable load on board and really couldn’t wait that long, Enter Corny’s. After some conversation and getting our basis covered, the van was on its way to our Service Center. It was pushing Four Thirty, but the need to keep going was important.
The first bad part, the driver had called his boss about the Red Battery Light. His response, Keep Going!
The second sad part, the van was towed 30 minutes in the opposite direction of the drivers’ destination. It seemed strange; there are a lot of garages between Knox and the other side of Brookville.
The van arrived, unloaded, and pushed into our garage. That’s when I noticed the van was damaged on the back, from California, and heaven forbid the drivers were black – OH My ??? Sad as it was, I had my answer, why no one else took the van in, other than the fact they would be staying late. ( I hope it isn’t true )
There is a happy ending to the story. We had the driver back on the road by Six, we were paid, and on our way home knowing we had helped someone out of trouble.As Always
