    Who gets excited unloading a trailer full of tires?
    The same guy who's excited to deliver to a dollar store.

    I worked at a tire shop/distribution centre from age 16 thru 21. I know about unloading tires lol its amazing how helpful the drivers get when the bosses good looking 20 year old daughter or one of the junior office girls are inventoring tires and chasing down stray ones in 90 degree weather. Definitely a perk at that time. :)
     
    Steel Dragon Thanks this.

    Add at least 30 degrees to that number inside the trailer on a sunny Summer day too.

    The tires are round and roll so it ain't so bad like a dollar account. It is a lot of fun perfecting the skill over the years. I can rocket them out of there at lightning speed, any size tire, and hit any target.

    Hopefully the next sniper looking for a good time,sets up shop near your depot..since you think hitting other folks is so funny.

    I used to deliver tires for STS in NYC back in the late 80's. It takes an art to get them straight into the shop door. I remember my first trip to Brooklyn, those tires were wobbling down the road and the owner was yelling at me. All I could do was shrug and apologize. Learning curve buddy.
     
    Steel Dragon Thanks this.

    I saw a guy walk into a standstill forklift while staring at his phone .....and the forks weren’t on the ground. Right at nut level. Cones were out thankfully but wish I had videoed it
