Is Morven on the Meter? Just Getting Started in CAR 29
...this so far seems to be a pretty much routine job with the opportunity for pleasant surprises. The other day I was hangin' in ZONE 2 (most likely at the wrong time of day... more on this later). A call comes over the "dispatch lottery machine" (more on this later)... pick up on Thomas Street (street names changed and numbers to be omitted for the purpose of privacy)... Destination... UNKNOWN.
Of course, given the vicinity of the pickup, I'm already (even just one day of training into this job) thinking it'll be another trip to the methadone clinic on Hickson (possibly, more on this, later)... A rough lookin' youngster, pony tailed in construction clothing meets me on the street... "Kingston Solar Farm, Zone 2... out on Unity Road"... Imagine my confusion... (I tippy type Unity Road into my GPS, to no avail)... As with most of my fares, the good people of the city of Kingston are more than happy to assist me in completing my training in my knowledge of getting around this place where... I kinda know where everything IS, I just don't know what everything is CALLED (just yet).
So... my first full morning... a pleasant AND pretty surprise. A way north of the (relative) hustle and bustle of this little limestone 'burg we go... SHEEP... look up!
(and away we go) (oh... and when CAR 29 and I return... we stopped in at the CAT Centre... just to look at the clouds ...and to see what ZONE 14 is like
