    Reefer guys parked face in to help you avoid hearing their reefer running. Also, the truck is sticking out because he stopped at the curb with the front of his truck unlike when you back in and your tandems are all the way forward allowing you to be in the space more.

    I have no pictures. But I went to the Love’s on I 10 in Sequin. Tx. down the road from my house yesterday at 6:45 p.m. to get fuel. I could barely get in. I have not been to a fuel stop since Aug. 2.
    It was like a third world country in there. Drivers parked anywhere they could fit sitting in their trucks with masks on. Trucks having to roll over the scale to escape Barter Town because that was the only way out.
    One guy on the fuel island slim jimming his driver door cause he locked himself out. 3 trucks behind him. One in front of me already fueled and waiting for the one parked past the pump to move. ( far pump next to scales).
    I kept getting dirty looks from the driver next to me don’t know why. Maybe cause I don’t need the safety of a mask to drive my truck like he does or maybe because my lane was about to move forward and he thought he was intitled to my spot because he chose his lane an hr ago and it hasn’t moved. Don’t know?
    I was fueled and out of there by 7:20 which was amazing considering the 4 pumps closest to the building were blocked the whole time.

    Not a rant because I actually enjoyed it. Lol!

    I used to stop at that Loves in Seguin for Arby's but it's been such a fustercluck the last few years that I don't bother anymore. The last time I was there someone forgot to set their brakes at the fuel island and the truck rolled down across FM 725.

    Same here for the Arby’s. Haven’t gone that far in past the fuel desk since the mask mandate.

    Did the truck go through the fence and into the vacant lot on the other side that used to be a mobile home dealer?

    I don't remember if it went through a fence. It had already happened when I was there. There was a wrecker there and a few police cars.
