A racket strap from one door to other is easier!

I seen that too but figured this would be easier to get undone and set back up if I need to go to the bathroom in the middle of the nightrofl-3.gif

Or when I have to mad dash to the restroom for obvious reasons!

There are some truck parking in areas that are seriously questionable. Industrial parks are rarely next to $200k+ neighborhoods. They are in the poorer run down neighborhoods. Because people with money don’t want to deal with the sights, smells and sounds of the crap they like being made and shipped. It just is how it is.

I wrote an article brett didnt publish yet. when you read it, you will be more afraid of me than anyone else outside. lol

hint: strangle perp with air lines, palm the abloy 3 pound lock and bash their head or throw it thru a truck windshield --- see how fast another driver comes out and startles the bad guy lol

always be aware of your surroundings and do what is safe. leave of you have to.

Keep that can of Raid handy. It'll stop 'em in their tracks and it's legal to carry.

Although I now believe rigging up the air horn to the doors would potentially be much more fun and effective. Just that little nugget itself was worth the price of admission.

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.

Just be cautious of wind direction when you release that poison cloud inside your truck.
