    Them was some loud horns, that would be enough to make you panic and jump on the brake if anything else. Good call on yelling at dude to move, why would you stand in between your truck and the truck that just hit you while he is still in reverse lol.
    Bud A., KB3MMX and scottied67 Thank this.

    Years ago we were building a small parking lot at a tank building company. I was putting down slurry lime with a single axle water truck, the lot was so small I had to make multiple passes and after the first couple of passes would just spin the tires.
    We hooked up to a front end loader to pull me and the operator was playing with me, rounding the corners fast enough to slide me sideways.
    He was looking back at me laughing as he rounded the corner back out to the driveway. A driver had parked a nice new shiny red 379, where ther had been nothing a few minutes before, I tried to get his attention, but no luck. he had the bucket up to where the cutting edge hit about half way up the radiotor, taking out everything including the front cover on the engine itself. lol

    We were standing there surveying the damage, when a guy walked up and told us that we might should get scarce, that Big Jim was right proud of that new truck and was going to be some put out when he comes back out of the office. He then pointed to the lettering on the door (big Jim) and said there is a reason they call him that. lol
    Bud A. and D.Tibbitt Thank this.
