He "Took on for the Team." That team must play in the National Drama Queens League.

What team?

Exactly my thought... what team?

This was the first post I read to bring in the New Year? I’m headed over to Truckers Report to see if anything can top this...

Kandyman you seem to be in need of attention. Unfortunately for you, not what you were expecting. Get real.

What team?

The driver was appreciative of my assistance. He was about to take out the corner of the building. He got jammed up because the uppity residents would not let him pull straight out. He had to left turn into the most congested part of the parking lot. Very very tight left turn. If I am correct most of the deliveries occur early or late enough to avoid the congestion. It was also his first time there. I made a point to let him know I could direct him out. Once out of the lot he was planning on taking a right. Which would take him thru downtown. Not an easy task in a truck.I ultimately sent him left toward the expressway. The idiot who chose to smack me just was all ticked off b/c he himself didnt realize the layout of the parking lot. So he was prob late getting back to his old frat boy friends watching the bowl games. I watched him turn around 3x before he flipped out. Me jumping on his hood was idiotic and thank god he didnt throw me off. If I could send an aerial view of the parking lot while crowded I would. I hate taking my van there. I get into an argument w my wife every time I am sent there! 1) I should have been clearer w my orig post. The details and it was meant for laughs mostly. 2) Mission accomplished. You guys you guys I knew some of the responses would be so lovely and "judgemental". 3) I drove for a short period of time. If I see a driver in a situation that would end in a preventable accident etc I approach if possible and offer help. 80% of time the driver is thankful. Nothing but respect my good people. Bash away. I wrestled a range rover I can take it. rofl-3.gif I wrestled a rabid clown also. Not in need of attention. Laugh my good people. I helped and made an idiot out of myself. Yep. Thats me! All up in it.

What mission? You playin’ games here? Every experienced driver called you on this. If you were honest in expressing your respect for us, you would refrain from this sort of nonsense.

Don’t you dare waste our time with this BS again. Move on if that’s your agenda! Is that understood?

I’m not gonna lie I thought it was a funny story. I’d agree poor judgment on your part for sure (just stay in the car please, we don’t want random people getting out of their cars to help us when making local deliveries).

It was an embellishment.

Undoubtedly. I need to get out of the truck more, I’m too easily entertained 😂

ROEHL was very clear about such situations during training. They told us never to follow any guidance, coming from unknown people, it is a company policy. If something goes wrong, it is always the driver's fault. The intention to help may be good, but the results are often just the opposite. So the best thing a non-driver can do is remain in his car, drive away, and give the driver some extra space, it is all he needs.
