#29in29 Day 27

Entertainment at work...

I don't know what this driver was thinking, but it livened up an otherwise dull afternoon.

He was trying to back up to one of our receiving docks, evidently our paved lot wasn't quite big enough and he needed just a bit more room. I'm walking from the dock where he should be.

 I've learned to take pictures of incidents like this, as soon as I got back to my desk I had an email notification of detention charges (we have 2 hours free time to get a truck unloaded, after that it starts to get expensive). I got these photos loaded on my computer and sent to the trucking company refusing all charges.

Be careful on the roads and highways, I stay as far away as possible from these big rigs. 

You just never know what 80,000 lbs. will do.



  1. The old song goes "Give me 40 acres to turn this rig around, it's the easiest way that I've found".

  2. What will 80,000 lbs do in soft mud, let me think - oh ... SINK! (Poetic isn't it?)

  3. Pretty embarrassing for the driver. I wonder how he got his license, the yard looks big enough for the rig.

  4. Funny...some people just don't think it's gonna be the sinking type of mud. Hehe

  5. The driver was not familiar with mud because once he was out he asked me if the drier patch beside the muddy spot was safe. I asked him if he wanted to try it again then he'd better have the tow truck wait. I "instructed" him to make a full circle turn on the paved lot then back up to the dock. My Team Oregon training is already paying off.

    1. Hmmm I wonder if he rides a motorcycle???? Go Team Oregon!!!

  6. THats why I am not a truck driver.
