Silver saucer shaped craft moving in rapid eratic movements and 90 degree turns.

It was about 5PM in the evening and I was getting ready to start work when I was walking through the parking lot where the trucks were parked and something caught my eye in the sky almost directly overtop of me..It was a very nice day out,warm sunny etc.I saw this object in the sky and it was moving in very rapid,eratic movements.There were big puffy cumulonimbus clouds that day and right at cloud level is where I saw it.The object looked like it was saucer shaped and silver or a stainless steel color.The underneath side was dark because of it's shadow and the top was gleaming due to sunlight.I watched it for about 30 seconds to a minute and it seemed strange to me that it was at such a high altitude and was moving really fast.Honestly,it looked like whomever was piloting this craft was either learning how to fly it or drunk cause it didn't have a set course.It zig-zagged across the sky in a small area back and forth,slowing down and speeding up and turning at 90 degree angles at times.Planes at this altitude appears to be moving really slow but they aren't,so this tells me that this object,even though moving in short distances,was moving extremely fast.I watched it for a short while and it disappeared into the cloud just above it.It had no lights that I was aware of,but it was daytime.
