My Business Truck: Dear Old Rugged Boy!

As fragile and squabby this Ford mini Truck looks, it had served my partner and I for almost two years in our private Haulage service in my city. When our Software Business carshed due to scams and too much bribing that we can't meet up with for FG Schools, we Sold our business Car and got a Truck on Lease to try out one of our old business that we left for a long time. Its overly sad to say that Covid19 ruined that slowly but thriving business for us. I'm one of those direct victims of the pandemic, most of the firms and privately owned warehouse we delivered for are closed down and some nearly liquidated.

As a business owner, it sucks to see that happen, but then I remembered the crazy moments in that beautiful rugged American Truck that was converted to a covered body truck for our small scale services. Yes I and my partner had to take over ourselves for close to a year because the drivers and Motorboys were scamming us, safe to say they make more than us the owners of the business. 


But the truck saw us through some deep dark times and some good times. Tire bursting like a bomb on Third Mainland Bridge, days of getting stuck in Apapa traffic for 24 hours, the days when clients don't want to pay or want to slash our payments. And the days when business was grounded till further notice like right now, but "OLD BOY" never failed us, though it does gave us some hard times, but the boy was loyal!
