    I'm trying to figure out how you can even get in a truck:scratch: you're heads so big idk how you fit it through the door.

    Ya gotta love us rookies don't you? We get a little bit of experience and suddenly were gods gift to driving a truck.

    There ya go,pretend no one is around.Im going on 11 yrs driving and I could care less whos watching me and whos waiting to back in.They're going to keep on waiting too until I get backed in or get out and give me hand signals.Almost everyday I go to a Tyson and have to blindside.But sometimes I get fed up and back into an easy dock.Probably piss Tyson off but I don't care.Hot weather I don't have time nor the patience.

    Probably while reading TTR, talking to someone on the cell phone and taking a nap all at the same time. I bow down to your unequaled expertise in backing

    I had a guy one time that woke me up around midnight, he was blind side backing next to me at the shipper. He said he was so sorry to wake me up but he only been driving for couple of days on his own. He also said that he has been trying for an hour to get it in there but he couldn't.

    Poor guy was shaking like crazy because he was so scared and didnt know what to do

    He offered $20 for me to back it in for him and i said no and that i will help him step by step to get it in and he did...

    I gave him few words of advice and told him he did a right thing by waking me up ( for the record he had to park next to me on a dock because he was blocking the entrance in to the company and couldn't back out on the street, it was a very small place in Chicago )
