So earlier this evening I had to run to local Food Lion to get some things for work. Very very tight parking lot. Food Lion delivery driver was having difficulties getting out. I stopped my vehicle and as I was jumping out to help him some dips$$& laid on the horn. I just yelled a few choice words proceeded to the front of the truck to direct driver etc Next thing I know, " Smack" the side of my head. It was the dude who laid on the horn. When I turned to confront him he bolted. I rode the parking lot on his hood. I would prob be in jail if I hadnt bailed when he slowed down. He took off like a bat out of h3$$. Or dead if I had held on. I was heckled by many w exception to the truck driver. Oh well

The dude had cut the driver off already, yelling at him about getting out of the gd way. Then proceeds to turn around and get out been out of shape when I tried to help the driver. Left that part out.

Wow Kandy, really? You swear with your right hand on the Trucking truth website that this is true? Pictures? You’re the kind of guy I want around, when there’s a problem. I’m impressed! I’m guessing you’ve got other instances. Come on let’s hear about them.

It wasnt that bad a&&. smile.gif I was hanging on for dear life and he looked like he was crying. And how would I have been able to take pics? He did not stop short and throw me, he slowed to a stop I slid off he sped away. He was driving a range rover. Old square body. Lots of room on hood. A video would be hilarious. But it happened. A rabid circus clown carrying a box of clips I thought ran by. I guess it was a box of grenade pins. dancing-banana.gif

Even if this were true, we don't need or want people "jumping out to help". Local delivery drivers, especially food service, deal with this multiple times a day. It's part of the job, and each driver will have his or her own safe way of dealing with this through their own experience.

Your alleged antics, noble and heroic as you would have us believe, likely caused danger and further delay for the driver and customers, and could have landed you at the receiving end of Bubba's wrath. All for a driver who didn't want you on his "team" to begin with.

Rescuing damsels and slaying dragons and such would be a far better use of your obvious gallantry.

Your belt buckle scratched the hood of my Range Rover, dude! Who’s going to pay for that????

Lol. Rolling my eyes on this one. Did the driver making the delivery ask you to help him, or did you just imagine you would jump out and appoint yourself as Traffic Cop? If this comical incident is indeed true, then all you accomplished was creating a volatile situation. Rather than trying to prove you were the next Starsky & Hutch by jumping on the so-called assaulter's car, maybe you should have got his license number instead and reported the assault? "Heck with that!" you say, because watching all those Superhero movies got you thinking you be The Wolverine.
