    The first pre trip I did on my assigned mixer, The Beast, an 11 yard manual tranny 359, there's oil all over the engine and in the coolant.

    So I walked over to the shop and introduced myself and told them the deal.

    They're like,"Dude, that has to go to Peterbilt on a hook."

    I was like,"Guess it's a good thing I haven't started it yet."

    Maybe if it was mechanical. I guess it's possible. Maybe.



    This wasn't mechanical. It was ignorance on both the driver and the boss.
