Day 1 - On the road!!

Funny story Number 1

sunny 22 °C

Was just at Lake Grace road house to get some credit on the phone to call both mums when we need to...So Shane's talking to his mum to let her know what time we will be getting into esperance. A truck drives past, and gets on the 2way as ask's if we were there, so Shane gets on to let him know that yes we were on channel, So the truckie says "Overload vehicle coming about 5 mins back"...So Shane reply's "Ok thanks, sorry mate"...Truckie abit confused as to why Shane should be sorry replies "Nah no worries mate, dont be sorry, just letting ya know he's coming" PMSL...Now to Shane's defence this guy was hard to understand, and i think i could only understand cause i was in the back seat looking for food...But still one of those moments that if you were in the car with us, you would have pissed ya pants laughing...Truckie must have been thinking "what the fuck is he sorry for?" LOL!! One more thing i think i forgot to mention in our last blog, Shane got a phone call before we left Perth about a job i applied for him via the internet, locomotive fitter, He can't promise that the job will still be there when we arrive as he needs someone urgent, but if it is still available the job is Shane's....So fingers crossed everyone!! This so far is looking like we made the right move!! let's hope things stay looking up! :)

Ha ha Shane is a dag.... I know some truckies are hard to understand on their two ways... & I have noticed they talk in a high pitched voice.. almost like they have no balls lol

Ha Ha... Yeah most do...but i would have to say this one was more of a mumble...Which im suprised Shane didnt understand cause he mumbles too, so i would have thought that he understood the lingo...Funny though..i couldnt stop laughing, and just had to post it lol
