    so I got pulled in for inspection today...

    truck is good, trailer is good, electronic log is good, you'd think I was good also...?

    oh no no nooo.... son...

    there are two vertical lines on the shipping paper disignating the hazmat column.

    should read, "line" X "line" or else "line" RQ "line"

    should never read, "line" R "line" Q.

    as in the paper was was miss alligned a quarter inch in the printer...

    dot says... now I know what that is... but its all gotta be inside the lines... somebody else might misread it.

    ??????????????????:biggrin_2554: yeah.... I suppose that could happen *smiles* I'll jump those guys when I get back to the shop...

    ok... I'd appreciate it... ohhh hold on.. we're not done... I still have to write you a warning on it...

    ?????????????????????????????????????????????? :biggrin_2554: no problem officer....

    *thinking to myself* you're kidding me right???

    no, he was serious... lol

    and... other than this... what a wonderful day...:biggrin_2552:

    You just found out what being 'anal retentive' is all about.

    This is why I have so little respect for the IA DOT. Absolute BS is all that is. Because his "Billy club" hasn't grown much since the day he was born he has to make up for it by acting like a large...billy club. His small lumber causes you to lose out on getting a few bucks for a clean inspection. Friggin' bull.:biggrin_25510:

    tim says my ticket was dismissed... for the rq not being all the way in the lines. officer was fairly new and unfamiliar with hazmat and had misinterpreted the specific application of the wording in the rule...(blah blah blah)...

    ok??? so I get paid right?

    yes you do...

    good enough...:yes2557: lol
