    I absolutely hated that truck stop. I went through the cheese counter one night, and some of the product was over a year expired. The girl told me my total, and I asked her if I broke a window or something.

    After I came back to my truck one time and found some wise guy had popped my fuel cap off in the middle of a rain storm I decided to stanchly avoid that place. Cheesy tourist trap.

    Sounds about right, blame the truckstop for your own negligence.

    I fueled at crap brothers in Peru. It was on there when I pulled into Walcott. You can have the place.

    It's amusing because the thought of "oh ####, I forgot to put my fuel cap on" never crossed his mind. Not even a whiff of doubt.

    In a parking lot full of time stressed, anonymous strangers, it's more plausible for him to believe that, out of the hundreds of trucks, some rando becomes fixated on his truck and does deadly sabotage by taking off his fuel cap in a pouring rain storm. If you've ever wondered how someone could clearly create an accident and then blame the person they just hit, this is how.

    Absolutely not. Only at Iowa 80.:rolleyes:

    The point is that place was already stupid and that was the final straw.

    The ####### fuel cap was on the tank. God you people are nuts in here. Somebody did mess with my truck there one time. That's it. Get over it.
