    It was probably a company truck, I don't recall. He may not have even felt it, I didn't but it was sure toughing, or at least you couldn't have slid a butter knife between them. lol

    A guy probably wouldn't have felt that trash can, but should have noticed that crooked light pole.

    Hell I clipped a new ford Taurus Brooklyn about 10 years ago and wouldn't have known it had it not been for having my window open and hearing glass breaking ..alarm go off and shreading metal. Lol

    I would have known that the trash can and pole were there before I backed in, and I would have ensured that I didn't back that far lol. Pretty simple.

    I don't wanna hear you all #####ing and complaining when I leave my gallon piss jug sitting in the parking lot now. There's no trash can anymore so it's not my fault!

    Who knows? Maybe that trash can had a bad attitude. Probably deserved it!
