    Saw this at the fuel line at Loves tonight.

    The bottom of the trailer was scraping the trailer tandem tires.

    Even funnier, apparently this guy felt his truck was unroadworthy enough that he shut down for the night right in the fuel lane because all the parking spots were taken. His curtain was drawn and he was just sitting there trapping the guys behind him.

    Is that a spring ride trailer? Maybe busted leaf on the right?

    I love how he decided to park right next to the fuel tanker so should he tip over there can be fireworks.

    Looks like the whole lower right side of that prestine trailer is wrinkled from the load shifting..
    I'am sure it's a 1st class rig to begin with .

    No kidding. Although we can’t see the tractor, any time you have a bungee cord holding the trailer doors shut, that usually screams professionalism.

    I reckon Iam fix'n to go out on a limb .. but I see the tractor is white
    I don't know how to read ghetto slang and I can't make out the graffiti style company name that some hood rat tagged the trailer with
    But I would guess there's a high percentage that that rig is Chicagoland 1099 fleece purchase rig ..and that's a Volvo dragging that trailer
    Chances are the driver only speaks broken English also

    The things you see at the truck stop. Well.....I always say, a driver needs only 63 ft of space in order to shut it down...I didn't have this in mind though.
     
    JoeyJunk Thanks this.

    If he has zip ties, then he has versatility in his professionalism.
