Upper Darby PA (West Philadelphia area) Up a hill, and so close to the building you can't open the truck door.

You can't tell from the picture but there is a pole a few inches from my passenger side. Where the cones are was chiseled out and a six inches deep.


Holy claustrophobia! How did you get out of your truck?

On the passenger side. That is the place that locked me in the gates as my last load home.

I pulled that truck across the dock and told them i was getting unloaded as soon as they returned the next day. "No truck is getting in or out of this place until you unload me. You saw MO on the truck and assumed you could con me. Think again pal!"

Got to the customer and to my surprise theres a crane in the way. Had to kick it around the corner of the building, between the crane so I could get to my 30ft of hose to unload. Feels like a 2nd Monday.
