I drive for UPS so usually just a trailer with a lot of boxes but once we had to pick up and drop off around 31,000lbs of toilet paper. Very weird and they were in very large crates.

Not me but I got stuck on I-81 one day near Roanoke. Schneider driver was blocking the northbound lanes. His trailer was on its side and toilet paper was strewn all over the highway. I thought it was apropos.

lol

A trailer full of port o potties.

I dropped them in a small dirt lot at this plumbing/septic company. They pushed them off onto a forklift.

I pull up taking their whole parking lot thinking what the hell. Tight squeeze

At least they were NEW

The load wasn't so interesting, but the way they unloaded it was. I had rolled paper, the shorter rolls that are about 4 feet high. I pull into an alley in the Los Angeles basin somewhere at 10 pm. About 6 guys jumped in my trailer and start tipping the rolls up and rolling them off the trailer. Then another group of guys would roll them into their building lol I got tired just watching them!

Back in my younger days way before I though about becoming a truck driver, I was in the US Army stationed in South Korea to an air defense artillery unit near the DMZ with North Korea. I was licensed to drive the 8x8 HEMTT 10-ton truck. I was tasked to help move 155mm artillery shells from our forward ammo bunker to the port in Busan. And they where not normal high explosive shells either. We did not placard the containers and had no markings or paperwork on them to identify what we where hauling either. Its was all done very quietly. No doubt in my mind, those where nukes.

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.

Or maybe those were COVID rounds?

Mushrooms. Straight from a mushroom farm. Piles of straw and rotting who-knows-what everywhere. Smelled almost as bad as a Purina Pet Food factory. I got to look inside for a moment. Nothing but mushrooms and a wet basement-type odor.

After I dropped off a reefer load at a Sam's Club I left for the mushroom farm. Literally had to turn left down a windy country road at the big rock on the corner. Very dark. Could hardly see even with the brights on. I'll never forget the smell.

But the odor of egg farms was worse.

A refrigerated trailer.
