    It's not like we need those trash cans anyway.


    Seriously people, always always always know what's behind you when you're backing up!!!! Get the f out and look if you're not sure what's behind you.

    No no no, he's trying to keep the vandals and thieves from gaining access to his load. Give him credit for thinking of his customer's valuables!

    A guy pulled in to the wallmart parking lot in Childress Tx one night and hit a light pole right out in the middle of the lot. He jerked the drivers side steer loose and back into the battery box, which went back and punctured the fuel tank. Truck came to rest up on top of the concrete pillar the light pole was at one time bolted too.
    Come daylight fuel had run all over the lot, looked like a tanker had emptied out and the law was looking everywhere for the driver, clean up crews had spread sand and were cleaning up. At 9 am or a little later the driver climbed out of his truck, no one had thought to check the sleeper, when ask why he hadn't reported the accident, he asked, WHAT accident. lol
