What the heck? How does that happen? Although it has to dramatically increase tread life on the smaller tire, lol.

Yesterday I went to a Pilot for fuel. All the lanes were busy, so I pulled up behind another truck to wait. Almost immediately, the truck in front pulled ahead. I thought I was pretty lucky, because whatever line I get in is usually the slowest. Even at the grocery store.

So I get out to start the pump and find out the screen is broken and can’t process my transaction. Then I have to pull through, swing around and get in line at another pump. Ok, this time the pump works and I get my fuel. I pulled ahead and went into the store for a few items. As I was checking out at the counter, I told the lady that pump 21 was not working and I put a safety cone in the lane so other drivers wouldn’t go in that lane. She said: “We know that pump is broken, but where did you get the cone from?”

Instead of answering about the cone, I said: “If you knew the pump was out of order, why didn’t someone here block it off so other drivers wouldn’t have to waste their time in that lane?” Then I just shook my head and left the store.

Thank you for letting me vent. Lol

I fueled up at this Pilot in Clovis, NM tonight. This pickup truck was parked in a big truck space. Every other parking space was taken. Thankfully for me and maybe the pickup driver, I was just there to fuel up. Good way to **** off a driver needing to shut down.

I’m not even otr anymore and this made me want to block him in (disclaimer: I’ve never blocked anyone in and don’t plan to lol)

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

That could have been one of the local guys "reserving his spot".

You just never know the whole story, it might be the doings of one of those drivers on either side of the pickup, though not likely. From time to time we will meet Michael at a nearby Flying J, sometimes to take his dog Ginger to the vet, other times when we're shopping nearby and join him for Panda Express dinner, etc. We usually double park in front of his truck, being sure not to get in the way of other drivers. Once I parked in a wedge shaped open spot between two parking spaces. But once Linda was picking up Ginger and parked in front of Michael's truck and another driver asked her to park next to him so that some noisy truck with a refer didn't park next to him. She declined, LOL.

When I worked at PFG some guys for various companies would park their personal vehicle in the spot at Ryder so no one else could take it. It became a game to some individuals of getting close to their door so the driver getting back later had to move the truck forward (most trucks left keys in ignition and doors unlocked) to get in or crawl over the seats in their own vehicle. One time one of the guys did it then also put a wheel chock in front of the guys tires for his car. He was already irritated after having a long day then had to deal with someone blocking his car doors and moving a truck and then thinking his transmission or somethings acting up cuz he wasn't moving.rofl-1.gif . It started with our group of drivers and by the time most of us left the company, drivers for other companies joined in. Most guys never parked extremely close as to risk hitting anything, just close enough you can't squeeze in.
