Hank had to come up with a plausible reason why he was so late with the deliveries this week. He readily pleaded that at the last moment he had found out the the tank of his delivery truck was leaking fuel. The repairs were extensive and took longer then he thought. His employer would have fallen for this earnest sounding story had he not seen Hank in the bar downtown, drunk and engaged in boisterous behavior. His arrest for disruptive behavior also took under his watch so not only the story was totally derailed but he was at risk of loosing his client too. He had to thank the lucky chance that intervened for him. It was the weekend before Halloween and the client needed more pumpkins delivered as soon as possible. So his employment was safe as well as his flaky reputation.
