    Lest anyone think that all I do is come on here and **** and moan......

    I enjoy having to move the truck several times to make my drop.
    I think it's an excellent idea to have only one vapor option for three tanks.
    I love the fact that the one vapor fitting is too far to use unless I'm parked right squarethe**** over the premium tank.
    I think the person who laid out this set up was a genius.

    If only they coulda got the diesel tank a little farther from the gas drops.



    Sheesh......he gets paid by the hour, what's his problem?

    I ***** about landing gears that are a little stiff.

    I mean...I LOVE the excercise that goes into cranking a stiff landing gear.




    My, how the mighty have fallen.

    So I'm sitting and waiting patiently ( for me ) for the light right behind me to change so's the good folks blocking my way can proceed the **** outta my way and I can make my left turn.

    Light changes, folks are moving slower than @Sinister tryna figure out how to take apart an RGN trailer, (it's a call back from waaaaaay back) and I'm watching the approaching traffic get larger and larger.

    ****.....not gonna make it across.

    And then......the Anomaly.
    The cooperative 4 wheeler.
    (rarely seen in these, or any other, parts)

    Dude in a Dodge (natch) p/u is waving me across frantically, but there are peeps coming up in the right (4 lane road) lane.

    Dude not only slows the folks behind him down, but he also starts weaving across both lanes to shut down the flow long enough for me to cross.:clap:

    So they are out there.......

    Now back to our regularly scheduled programming....

    I pull into station only to find a woman sitting in a parked car.....on my premium tank.:thumbsup:

    I'm gonna say right from the start, she is doing nothing wrong. Stores, in the interest of maximizing parking, will paint parking spaces right over the fills.:explode:

    So I roll up and stop the truck with the right fender mirror approximately
    3 feet from her ear hole.

    To get her attention, you see....

    She turns her head approximately 3.1 degrees and sees out of her peripheral vision "there's a truck right there............don't care."

    She is intently staring at her phone.
    Prolly face book.
    The 9 yr old in the jump seat looks at me and my trlr, then, looks to her right and looks at the fills, then turns to her mother as if to say "I see the problem here".
    Can we put the 9 yr old in the drivers seat?

    The broad continues to ignore the big diesel idling right the **** next to her....

    Thought it might pique her interest.
    Nope.
    She is laser focused on that F/B.
    Polly some pix posted by Billyjoejimbob of his garden just outside his trailer.

    (sound like anyone we know?)
    PRINK:p:yahoo::thefinger:

    So I set the brakes, fingering the noise would startle her back in to the life of the living.
    Wrong...... AGAIN.

    So's I get out and ax her if she would kindly move to another spot so I can deliver there right where she's parked.

    She looks at me and says "you have got to be kidding....."

    "No....it would be awfully elaborate if I was"
    So she moves and I deliver.

    Lather, rinse,repeat.

    My day (s)

    It was, as all my posts are, for my own amusement.

    Yep. Just like the red pond reduckery thread. Nobody's supposed to actually read it. :D

    One of these days I'm gonna figure out how to download it so Mike can free up some server space. :rolleyes:

    Hate to burst that little bubble of sunshine for you, but given he was in a Dodge I believe he was just naturally driving as Dodge drivers are want to do.

    There is a reason they put rain x on the inside of the windows at the factory.

    I'm gonna burst your little bubble of spelling sunshine, as is my wont.



    I didn't want to.

    Ok, yes I did.

    Hahahahahaha.... You DO drive a Dodge! :biglaugh:


    In all seriousness only idiots think one of the three brands is better than the other two. They're all good trucks, and they're all junk, each in their own way.

    Some guys prefer one over the others simply because that's what their familiar with. Others, because they're idiots. Or trying to fit in with the idiots... :rolleyes:
