    Does the word "cornholed" make you wary of anything?

    I’ve played that game before. Frankly, I think it should be played with some sort of ball rather than a bean bag and you either get it in the hole or you get nothing. None of that closest bees wax. And that yahoo kept knocking my bags out of the way. Boy, that really steamed me good!

    On a related note, last I heard all of his friends still think he fell off of a bridge.
     
    TB John and Lonesome Thank this.

    This is common practice in NorCal for decades for companies to tell drivers to find alternate routes around scalehouses. I worked for a roofing supply outfit as a temp in 96 who had great equipment but would overload truck to avoid sending another to jobsite. After several times having to leave product at inspection stations to make weight I was told to go another route to bypass Fremont & Walnut Creek scales. I was a temp so I got reassigned . Back then it was $500 fine if they caught you plus overweight fine & points on license. With CSA 2010 probably only the worst of the worst will risk it now

    Are you serious.
    Haven't read on this forum how many guys tell
    Other drives you have to do whatever the company
    Tells you to do.
    Working for free or not,legal or illegal,
    Right or wrong.
    Doesn't make a difference.
    If the company says do it, you do it.
    We got a word for these guys. You all know it is.

    My buddy just got a local job with Cowan on the east coast and they tell him the same thing. "No scales on the turnpikes don't worry about it."
