    So here it is folks... This guys holding that steering wheel so tight he rips the front bumper off his companies rig and then wants to turn the blame on the Waffle house and try and hold them liable for his negligence.

    NEVER a dull moment out here with these guys.

    I saw a swift driver stuck in a very similar spot this morning at that 'adult' parking area near the border of west Virginia. Almost thought it was you. But yeah I avoid dirt lots if I can. Who wants to step out on mud and track that inside? Gets everywhete6

    Thank you for informing us the location. Been in this situation at the TA on the east side of Cheyenne. The back part of the lot isn't paved and the same thing with the holes. Trailer moved sideways and the front bottom part of the trailer scraped the outside tread of my outside tire. Took a good piece of my tire UGH.

    Well yeah, I mean their lot and it's full of more bunkers than the back 9 at Augusta. I'll take my lumps and go, because even if I was gonna fight them and ask them to be accountable for THEIR parking lot the net result as others have said is an outright truck ban.
    Others have mentioned it might not even be their property.

    But if it can do that to a truck?
    I can imagine what it'll do to a Buick full of church ladies won't be pretty.
    They won't be gorilla out of it like I did.

    Just because I was an idiot doesn't mean they probably don't need to fix it.

    You probably point and laugh at ambulances too. "Heart attack? Probably shouldn't have eaten cheeseburger for 40 years! Haw haw."

    Feel better about yourself now?

    Hook ain't got me yet driver.

    There’s a German word, “schadenfreude”, which refers to the feeling of pleasure some people take in another person’s suffering. Like when a waitress drops her tray of food and there’s always that one d-bag who claps.

    You get a lot of that in here.

    This may be a first for the tow truck driver. He might have to wear a life jacket to hook you up.

    You sure get a lot of folks coming on here wanting to point the blame to someone else instead of owning the problem that they've created.
