    I'm Guessing he's one of those guys that only looks in his mirrors when he is backing up.

    I've said it many times. There's 2-4 magical things bolted to the side of every truck. You look at them and they reflect back what's behind you.

    You would think that even if he didn't look out the mirrors he might pickup on the all the light coming through the back window.o_O

    I sure hope that does not happen to me.

    I pull a tridem dump trailer.

    But even I noticed that one time the truck (no trailer on) was hard to operate driving down the road with the pump activated.

    Every gear shift was like the jakes were on except no noise.

    I pulled over and then noticed the pump was running.

    Then I figured out that my seat belt caught the pump air lever and flipped it on.

    thanks for the good laugh!!

    i needed it after a day like today.

    1) got up and shaved, ate breakfast, then went to wally world to stand in line

    2) got all the things we needed at wally world.

    3) came home, it was rainy, so i could only sit outside, under the porch, and smoke my cigar.

    4) had a peanut butter, and banana sammich and a tall glass of milk for lunch.

    5) had a nice long nap.

    6) just had supper, a BLT, and orange soda.

    i had a very tough, hard day, that laugh felt REAL GOOD, after all i been through today..

    i hope i don't have as bad a day Sunday..>!!!!

    Like most of the dump truck idiots in Wisconsin, no mud flaps either.
