First I'll start off with drivers playing with their phones driving an 80,000 lb missile. I saw it three different times today. I was passing them in traffic glanced to my right I saw that and I thought what the hell? All three times we were in heavy traffic can't imagine what these idiots are thinking about.

The next thing that happened I was driving on 44 outside of Tulsa and this pickup with two Hispanic males on it are honking their horn at me and pointing to the back of my truck. I had just stopped about 20 miles back get some coffee and did a walk-around before I took off again. Kept checking my mirrors to see if I had a flat tire I didn't feel... But I didn't see anything no smoke... this went on for for a good minute or maybe more. I'd look straight ahead and they'd honk the horn again and the guy in the passenger seat kept pointing to the back of the truck. Just didn't seem right I wasn't about to stop. So I slowed down and let them pass. I had had a couple trucks pass me before this and after they were way ahead of me and none of the trucks called me on the CB to indicate I had a problem. Next off ramp I Came Upon I pulled off and checked everything... No problems at all. Just thought I'd share this especially with the newer drivers that there's a lot of games played out there don't fall for them.

That's the way to keep your head. And thanks for the warning flag. Good to be aware of that.
