I just watched this professional do a straight back for 25 minutes. First, he tried to run into me, then he almost got the truck four spaces over. He had 120 feet in front of his hood to line it up, too. Why do it the easy way??? Speaking with him, he tells me that he has driven for eight months; leasing his truck for the past seven months. "I think I make $450 a week after my boss does the deductions for me. I don't have to do any accounting this way." I walked away.

The name on the trailer made me laugh (after he was finally parked).

This driver is not originally from the US. He's from an ethnic group that is preyed upon by other folks of the same ethnic group that own shady businesses here. I have seen this many times during my travels around the country.

I hit send too soon!

That $450 may be a king's ransom in his home country, or he may be entitled to $2500 a week after expenses now. Who knows with his boss doing the accounting "to make things easier" for that driver. These groups are being taken to the cleaners by their own people and don't even realize it.
