Truckin Along With Kearse's Comment

I told my trainee to do a full inspection, then started looking for parking along our route.

I freaked and pulled the brakes, "You forgot to set the brakes. We are going to roll backwards!"

Daniel: "I was doing a brake test!"

He is still laugjing at me 2 hours later

The same day I ran over a kitchen sink last week something else happened.

Picture this: I have a phone mount on the dash to the right of my steering wheel. My Rand McNally is mounted to the windshield on the left as far as it will go. I had the cord for the gospel wrapped around the phone mount to keep it out of the way.

Stopped at a red light. Light turns green and I start going. Gps comes crashing down to the floor which pulls the phone mount down which hits my key and turns the truck off. Not only that but the key fell out and hit the floor. Once in a million years.

NeeklODN, that's crazy! Sometimes stuff happens out here that defies logic and belief.

Yesterday while going to make my drop I had a wild suicidal turkey run out in front of me, he literally waited until this car passed by and right as I was getting ready to pass by him, he came running across the road!

Why did the turkey cross the road? i don't knowconfused.gif

Or the dang goats crossin' the road! lol confused.gif

Back in like 2007, I just got off the I-15 @ Cajon Pass,Cal. taking the exit road along the freeway headed home.....

Out of the desert brush, stroll 2 goats crossing the road towards the freeway fence. I'm watching em, to kinda see where they're going to go....

The bigger goat, well it decides to turn back, right in front of me !! I had NO time to stop, or react fast enough....Plus My service van was very heavy, with all the parts and my tools etc...

Big mistake, the right front corner of my bumper smacked it right in its hind quarters, doubt it suirvived long after...I stopped to look for him, but they had ran off into the desert....

All I saw was it's hind 1/4 was pretty torn up, the smaller one, might have went home, He escaped injury.....Didn't hurt my work van whewwww......I felt bad for the poor goat, never forget that day

I hated my trainers Rand McNally gps for the sole reason that it's magnetic mount would not hold. Any decent bump would send the GPS flying, often hitting me.

On one occasion I hit a hard bump in a construction zone. The GPS flew off the mount and struck the engine break on the way down. It bounced off the engine break stalk and then hit the 4 way flasher button. Then bounced off that button and hit my knee right in the joint where a doctor would hit you to test reflexes....

The hit in the knee makes my leg kick the dashboard and go numb a moment.

So there I am suddenly at max engine break with my 4 way flashers on cussing up a storm because I just involuntarily kicked the dashboard and my leg went tingly.

I bought a Garmin with a fixed mount.....

I used three drops of superglue on my magnetic mount RM GPS two years ago.

Yeah old school that was probably the third or fourth time that day I gave up driving forever. No joke
