    Seems pretty silly to me, but it was Florida.

    When doing trailer swaps while running reefer, if I had a load lock in my trailer and the guy I was swapping with had none in his trailer, he would just give me a load lock. Or vice versa, if my trailer had none and his had 2, I'd give him two of mine. That way neither of us lost equipment, otherwise we could end up with too many or not enough.

    In a situation like that . Keep straps on load and give the other guy the crappiest straps from ur box , match the number. Not rocket science

    What really sucks is if he had been pulling the best trailer and kept the best securement in the company and now he lost it all because it well get shuffled around by others that don’t care as much as him.
    That I can relate to and understand why he wanted to kill. Maybe the driver they sent to repower is “that guy” in the company that looses or breaks things. Everyone knows a “that guy”

    I was gonna make a joke about:

    “luckily for the suspect, the bailiff didn’t know how to properly secure a jail cell and the suspect got away.”

    but it just doesn’t fit.

    just like the tarps,,,
