    Rookie or not, no excuse. More than enough room. This is why shippers line their paths with giant boulders because idiots like this can't make a simple turn. I'd fire her immediately.

    This is also why you NEVER want to park at the end of the row at a truckstop.

    I thought there was going to be something to actually watch. More $$$ damage to the trailer than the pole and rock. :biggrin_25518::biggrin_25518::biggrin_25518: Oh and big boulders....:biggrin_2559::biggrin_2559::biggrin_2559: They have not seen big boulders. Around here we call that gravel.

    Wow, so much room to make that corner easily. She obviously was not using her mirrors while negotiating the turn. I am glad that was not the remains of a 4 wheeler and occupant smeared across the ground.

    I think she tried to make the turn from the middle of the entrance, rather than the right side.

    "I guess I didn't cut it wide enough" she's says lol

    Duh. No ####.

    What is it with them and left turns? Easy left turns?

    Had one 2 months ago cut a left in front of me and drug the last 1/3 of his trailer across the hood of my brand new truck. At our DC in front of the shipping office in a bobtail only area no less.

    Where do they find these people?
     
    HorseShoe and chico9696 Thank this.

    Agreed. One thing (of many) that sticks in my mind from school, use all of the space available to you when maneuvering. Evidently, that was one of her failings, not using all of the available space.

    I guess they only hire folks who are used to having a back window. :confused:
