    Very sad.

    Make you sure you keep your distance when helping others.

    i can't recall ever helping anyone backing, and i was not in front to do so.

    poor decision on his part to be in the back.

    I can't imagine being behind a bobtail to help them back into a trailer.

    I actually had a genius standing in front of my truck waving me forward today. He was trying to get me to pull closer to a another truck that I was parking behind. I popped my brakes and "politely" reminded him that if I could see him, I could see the truck in front of me, but no way in hell was I moving with him standing there.

    Get each other's phone number if you have to and talk to them directly to let them know you are clear or not clear.

    I’m trying to figure out why someone needs a spotter to hook up to a trailer?
