what was the WORST or CRAZIEST thing you have ever hauled?

Discussion in 'Questions From New Drivers' started by DeepSouthRollin, May 6, 2018.

  1. one load was picking up penguins poop and bat quano in 50lb bags
    who collected this and put them in the bags??

    the other was paint roller foam. three large 8ft wide 3" cardboard center with 8' continuous foam. 3 of these fit in a dry van.

    the foam load. I got stopped at the scale cause I went thru loaded lane. cops said I was empty. suppose to go thru empty lane. so I get pulled.

    cop comes out to meet me,. small talk
    Cop:. BOL. what you hauling (Bol is all computer numbers no words)

    Me:. dryer lint

    Cop;. alright smart ### open the doors.

    Me: open doors (huge multi colored foam covering entire trailer opening)

    Cop:. so that's what they do with dryer lint,. I never knew.

    Me:. no really it's paint roller foam un- dyed.

    Cop: dryer lint was better.

    I've heard the security clearance is tough to pass to get those jobs. I remember an old friend who use to drive for the feds would joke that they already knew the weight of his first bowel movement after he was born. So you better tell the truth when they ask you a question.
    DeepSouthRollin Thanks this.

    The background check is quite extensive, You do actually sign agreement holding you liable for discussing things you may see, For me it was easy, I have not seen anything that would be of interest , buildings streets, dry lakes, no flying saucers or aliens at least as far as I know.
    417bigK and DeepSouthRollin Thank this.
