I wrote this before the end of the month. But I will be here for a few more days than I thought I was. I’ve been in this area for a couple of weeks. This is the longest I’ve been in any one spot since I was in Gillette, Wyoming two years ago. I still have a few things to do.
A couple of people here started talking to me. One is a worker(he’s starting another job in a few days) and another guy that comes in all the time with another man. Usually, after being in a Mcdonald’s for a few days people that come in often will start talking to me. My experience with Mcdonald’s is the same people will come in all the time. It was the same in Atchison, Kansas. Which I hated having to leave.
As a followup to the last post, I’ll be in this area for a few more days while I get some things done and wait for the first of the month to roll around and leave. I’ve been able to do okay this month with saving money mostly because I’ve stayed in one place alot longer than I did two years ago. Since I really like this particular Mcdonald’s it makes it easier. If I don’t like the place I won’t stay opting to stay longer at a location I like. The next big one is not getting hassled by managers or the police. If that happens that’s my cue to leave.
In fact, one day I came out of walmart where I’ve been parked for several days and saw a manager talking to a trucker that had been parked there for a few days. I walked around the corner to a store and waited for him to leave since I was in no mood to deal with him. Shortly after, the trucker left. Since then, I’ve seen either him or another trucker that works for the same company parked in the lot for a couple of days and just today I saw two from the same company and if I’m not mistaken the same trucker is back but he parked in a different spot than before. Luckily, even though they have no overnight parking signs posted in the lot it doesn’t seem to deter anyone and people park anyway, sometimes for a few days, like me. I also noticed that some of the truckers use the walmart parking lot as a place to park their cars while they’re out on the road. At first, I thought they were just walmart employees parked at the end of the lot but after being here for a few days realized the vehicles belong to truckers. I guess the manager doesn’t notice or doesn’t know.
I make it a practice in most walmart lots to get out as quickly as possible to avoid being noticed but haven’t adhered too well to that policy here mainly because I’ve been sick. Also, no employees park in the area where I do. It’s mainly used by truckers. And employees seeing you sleeping in your car is where the problem comes in. They will alert their bosses who then make a point of coming up to your vehicle as soon as he/she catches you in it. I’m not sure why employees think it’s their business if you’re sleeping in your car especially with the sorry wages they pay them. Personally, I wouldn’t be making enough to tell my boss so he could hassle someone especially someone who has no other place to sleep. And if the person isn’t bothering anyone like myself I don’t see what the problem is.
