So this happened just now (Adairsville, GA):

I was sleeping and my student woke me up saying he got himself stuck in a "situation". He had missed a turn and was unsure of how to turn around. It wasn't that bad. I was able to get us turned around without even having to go off-road. Unfortunately, the local land owner came out. She parked her car right in front of my truck and started telling me about how she is "sick of trucks turning around down here...it's a historic area...blah, blah, blah".

Anyway, she called the Sheriff. So we waited. Then she got out of her car to tell me her 83 year old mother in law was on her way down in her pick up truck.

šŸŽ¶Imperial MarchšŸŽ¶

With Yorkshire Terrier in hand, the mother in law proceeded to say the same things the first lady said. I called the police and let them know what was going on and to ask if someone from the sheriff's office was in fact coming out to us. "Yes", the kind dispatcher informed me. "Deputy Fowler is on his way." The Deputy told us we were free to go after advising the landowner to put up a fence. So how's your morning?

Dispatcher:

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.

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices

I'm picturing some 75 year old portly old lady with a 13 lbs purse beating the hood of your truck, just before Deputy Fife (Fowler) arrives to rescue you two.

This is when you hand out Prime, Inc. hats or shirts to hopefully smooth things over.

I don't think they'll put up a fence. It sounds to me like they don't have anything else to do. When a truck turns around it's probably the highlight of their week.

You certainly paint a funny picture

There is a Loves about a mile away. The lady told me I had better inform the truckers at the truck stop not to come down this road anymore. As if we all know each other and meet at this Loves everydayšŸ¤£

I guess the advice I would give for anyone in a similar situation is to apologize a lot and kind of nod and agree with what the angry landowner says. Also, call the police to make sure they are aware of what is going on.

I've picked up and delivered around Adairsville several times, especially when I was driving at Millis. There are a bunch of side roads around there that are not truck friendly, especially in the dark of night.

Oh no, it's Deputy Fowler! You're gonna get it now. You'll regret the day you were born.
