    Question, if I may.

    At what point does the wide eyed child who’s fascinated with trucks like most of us including myself were become some trollish idiot looking for some poor “low class working stiff” that they feel entitled to make fun of?

    Funny story. I went on a rant a week or so ago on a different thread about our barn being a complete circus. How our dock workers load up freight at random, our urinals not flushing, and the overall building falling apart. I walked into work with this note attached to the bathroom. And sure enough, there was standing water.

    Could be worse. They could’ve threw something flammable on there or a little cyanide.

    One of those things only needs to be 4’ from the oxidizer, but the other can’t ride with the corrosive liquid at all. ;)

    the dock supervisor said the load was ok after i questioned him if the chemicals will start a fire in the event of spill, the load was seg properly, the shipment was going to Evonik. 5.1 in the nose and 8 on the tail/ sacks and totes/ i wont pick up the two unless the shipper knows that the shipment wont cause fire ,heat or gas if mixed..... most places usually have chemist or chem engineer on site during normal working hours. that will assure the load.....i was at chemical house after hours and the shipper tried to give me 10k pound of 4.2 a and 16 drums of 8 :eek::eek::eek::eek:

    At face value of the photo, that's an easy load to refuse without proper UN placard markings. I don't think those UN numbers are 3.9 inch Helvetica Medium numerals.

    According to the segregation chart 4.2 and 8 can’t ride together either.
