80 year old Grandma flipping me off outside Atlanta because I took a bit too long to pass. I couldn't even be mad!

A hot pink Mustang in LA.

And others I'm not remembering right now. Been going for 13+ hours at this point.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Several days ago I passed a couple walking along the interstate... he had a dog on a leash, she was pulling luggage. There had been no broken down vehicle prior to passing them. I captured them on my dash-cam; here's the screenshot...

This actually happens fairly often. Another Swift truck will start to pass me and inevitably some super trucker will get on the CB complaining about being stuck behind the Swift truck passing the Swift truck. At first I'll get on the CB myself and remind them that if they were really in a hurry they should have probably just woke up earlier. LOL!

If they're cool about it, I'll tell them to hold on a second, I'll see what I can do. Then I slow down, let the other truck pass and tell them, "well there ya ya go, have a nice day".

They almost always say thank you but then ask..."when did they start putting CBs in Swift trucks?... LOL!

I was in Houston that day but didn't get to witness it, so maybe this doesn't count, but the lady who crawled up on top of the truck naked there last year is still epic.

Yesterday a lady crawled on top of a train here. When the cops arrested her, she told them she was looking for a friend. On top of the train. Wth?

Kind of bad, but a little awesome to see. A bird was flying then this work truck like a ram 3500 came speeding past me. The bird could not fly high enough and you just see feathers go everywhere and the dead birds body bounce off the truck.

Maybe not funny haha but it made me laugh out loud. When I was with my trainer and he looks over at me and asks what's so funny? "There's a young woman riding alongside me right now with her shirt open and her breasts out". She kept the pace for about a minute and then continued passing.

A funny claim we had last year. This school bus company that we insure had a driver who went and picked up a hooker and had sex with her in the bus.... well after all was done they started fighting over how much he was supposed to give , he wanted to give $15 but she wanted $20, then they got into a shoving match and she fell lol ..... all things done and said she filled a claim and ended up having 25000 reasons to smile ...lol

I was on a two lane road in Yellowstone park at 0300, in high winds and ice....five foot high snow walls on each side when I came upon a Buffalo in the road.

Me to diispatch: large wooly mammoth in road. No safe way to turn around. Narrow road, severe winter conditions. Please advise.

(The please advise makes it their problem lol).

Dispatch: can you still make On time delivery?

Me: can you send a forklift or some cowboys and Indians to.move this bison? I'm from jersey. I'm not trained in the matters of wild animal handling.

Dispatch: That's above my pay grade. What's your ETA?

Hahaha
