    More to the story, or the customer just sent in an outrageous bill because they can.

    You were "badgered" to come back to work by the company? This is Marten right? The company with what.....700 plus trucks on the road and they could not live without you for awhile? Ok, let's say that they did "coerce" you to return in order to move that one more load that apparently "had" to be there...Do you have any responsibility here? If you were "in a weakened state" (your words not mine) then why did you climb back in the truck?
    Here is what I think driver.....You were medically cleared when you came back to work and you simply screwed up and damaged some property. It may be easier to blame someone else but the truth is that you need to own your actions......Just sayin'

    Yep! Definitely! If I've learned one thing from this site it's there is always more to the story.

    If I was the customer I'd send in an outrageous bill too. I can't think of any good excuses to justify driving on the grass.

    The guy is a millionaire. He can't afford a decent pen and paper to write on?

    You put yourself in a pickle when you violated doctor's orders. Just think if you were in a wreck. They lawyers would have a hay day.

    Our high school put in astro turf on the football field for a cool million. That's a lot for a big rug. :)
