So, those of you who thought I would get a minivan for work at Charter... You’re wrong! I got an E250. It’s old, but I don’t mind. The thing I absolutely hate, though, is the ladder rack. Every other van here has a thing that lowers the ladder to the side of the van. Mine doesn’t. So I have to lift a 115-pound, bulky, steel ladder over my head every time I take it off or put it on. I’m legitimately worried that I can’t do that. I can carry the ladders, but only either on my shoulder or at my side. I don’t think I can lift them that high. And my supervisor won’t let me trade vans with anyone.

The good news, though, is that I’m gonna be one of the first in line for a brand new Transit within the next month or so. They’re automatic, but they have a clutchless manual setting! Super excited for that.

But until then, I’m stuck with a smelly old 230,000-mile piece of poo with no rubber on the brake pedal. That will be fun when my shoes are wet....
