    According to the timestamp on the pic in its original spot, that pic was tKen at 1:46am, May 29, 2011. Pretty sure it just felt like 5 am!

    What kind of fool would stack all those cans on the dash while they were sitting around in Laredo waiting for their trailer to come back?

    The guy's gotta be nuts.

    That one was in Des Moines, right before we took out the trash.

    In the picture, the visor seen through the windshield appears to be yellow. And that looks like Peterbilt gauges. Hmm .. who drives a big yellow pete?

    Define "took out".

    I had it confused with the one in Sioux City when we drank beer until the sun came up. At least I got a 10 hour break, right?

    The mistake was in the bobtail parking like a jackass.

    And if that's the stupidest thing youve ever seen in your 35 posts, and over a year registered, you really should log in more.

    Been getting home weekends for about the last month, and leaving the laptop in the truck.

    What if 2 bobtails were sharing a spot, and then one of them left before you got there?

    What if the bobtail arrived at 2AM and there were no other places for him to park & sleep, and that one spot, due to the way others were parked, happened to be "that one spot" that nobody can (easily) get into with a trailer?

    I've seen that sort of thing happen before when I've been stuck without a load somewhere. I'd see a bobtail parked at the end of a pull-thru slot and another one comes in and parks behind him, then I take a nap & when I get up, the first bobtail is gone, but the later arrival is still there and there's some guy flapping his ignorant jaws on the CB, *****ing because there's a bobtail in a pull-thru spot.

    I don't get so aggravated about bobtails so much as going through and seeing a dozen dropped trailers, usually near the front by the building. I understand a guy needs to drop the trailer to go home in many cases, but if you're not going to be there anyway, why not drop your trailer at the back of the lot?

    I get aggravated seeing a lot of bobtails taking up full spots. When I'm bobtail I always look for an out of the way place. It's called courtesy
