    I had one at the scales in Limon CO. Don't know what I did to get her attention, but there was a period of time I was through that scale twice a week.
    She always had me come in, and show her paper work. AND a couple of times, she had slipped my CDL out of the paperwork "accidentally," and didn't give it back with the paper work. I checked the paper work before leaving the counter, (always did when it had been out of my hands.)
    Talk about wanting to ##### slap a real #####....

    See above.

    Oh I think he got mixed up. He's in Arizona.....:D

    That is assuming, (bad word, I know,) that they are able to add, and come up with the correct number.:confused:

    Well, we do have some real winners here, but I'd like to think most of them can add single digit numbers.

    Well it's Monday. My Steelers got crushed, kind of like this car on it's side just to the front of the fire truck.

    ODFL recently became the official carrier for Major League Baseball. Trailers are in the process of getting nifty MLB decals on the doors, so it's kind of cool. I got to pull a long box last night with a baseball load. My boys are baseball junkies and flipped out. I didn't have the heart to tell them it was probably just dirty jockstraps or something silly like that.
     
    ClassB, Buckeye91, Mike2633 and 6 others Thank this.

    Yeah, my boys love the game. They don't just play, they study it constantly to find ways to improve their game. One of them pitched the game last night and was red hot. It makes ol' dad feel good to see his kid flinging heaters straight down the pipe.

    My proudest moment came at the start of the season though. The kids are old enough that some of them are starting to turn into prima donnas. New team, new coach, so first practice he moves kids around to evaluate them. He asks one of my boys what position he plays. First base. Okay, coach says, right field for now. Sure thing coach, my kid says, and runs off to the outfield. No arguing or protesting that wasn't his position, just grabbed his glove and took his place.
