    Speaking of dragging a Pole there was a movie on Netflix, about some Polish kids who in the 1980s like 1988 or 1989 one of those years decided they had, had enough of living in poor communist Poland and hopped on a truck they climbed underneath the trailer of the truck and basically laid on the truck axles for 300 miles and made it from Poland to Denmark. It was an awful trip and terrible time, I don't know exactly what happened to them I think they ended up getting stuck in Denmark and were able to make it back to there parents in Poland and the parents were like hey stay in Denmark, because it's poor and awful here in Poland anyhow.

    who cares how many tickets or the costs..??

    who cares if he gets suspended or fired?

    who cares if he gets to be a trainer now?

    i sicken and tire of jerkwads out there.

    it just ain't NEVER gonna improve.

    i feel real sorry for the rest of you that have to put up with all this crap when someone busts your chops about jerkwad drivers.

    They are taught by their POS company that they are only liable for what's in front of them and so mirrors are a distraction.
