Russ Towne's A Grateful Man

The experience below may have been the most embarrassing day of my life–and considering how many such moments I’ve had, that is really saying something!

When I arrived I noticed with frustration that the road leading to the dock was long and narrow, and that there was an even longer queue of drivers waiting to unload their vehicles one by one as each eventually became the first in line at the single unloading point.
