Guess he was in a jam.

Well, he couldn't very well tell his boss that he was too drunk to drive. Next thing Subby will get all preachy about how this guy shouldn't have been drinking in the first place.

He couldn't just text in "There's a control system error, mechanic on site says it should be fixed in 6 hours"

That's because every time a truck driver has a rough day or the smallest boo boo they call their dispatcher and whine about it, that and they will want to see proof of service performed in order to avoid any fines for late arrival at receiver.

Were they marionberries?

My Dad drove big rigs and died in the crossfire of a shoutout between police and berry bandits, so I'm not getting a kick ...

The driver said two men with guns took his keys and told him to stay with the truck until they returned to steal it and a load of berries he was transporting.

"Yeah, we're gonna steal your truck. But first we have to..."?

Why didn't he just turn on the Navitron Autodrive system and let the truck drive itself.

Time for my only really good story from trucking.

2:30 a.m. I was pulling into Baytown, TX on I-10 just East of Houston. I was dead tired having picked up the load in Youngstown, OH and driven it straight through to Houston for delivery in the morning. I lucked out and found an open parking spot at a little podunk truck stop across the street from the Pilot there, last parking spot open out of the 4 truck stops in that area. I backed in, climbed out of the drivers' seat and immediately fell into the bunk.

I wasn't sleeping more than 5 or 10 minutes before I got that tap, tap, tap, on my door, climbed out of the bunk to look out my window and see what I knew was already there. Glass eyed, scaly skinned hooker with that I just smoked 17 rocks look on her face. She asked if I wanted company and I said "no thank you, i just need to get some sleep." She nodded and started to walk off, I climbed back in my bunk and went straight back to sleep. 15 farking minutes later I hear that tap, tap, tap on my door again. Crawl out of the bunk, it's the same whore with the same look on her face, she didn't even remember coming to my truck the first time. I told her "No" again and went back to sleep.

Biatch comes back a THIRD time, and this time I am pissed off. Jump out of the bunk, roll the window down and start calling her every name I can think of, she gets this deer in headlights look, apologizes and walks away. She didn't knock again.

Wake up at about 6:30 a.m. to go unload, but walk into the truck stop first to fill my thermos up with coffee, as i'm walking back out to my truck I notice it looks a little off... But i can't quite put my finger on what's wrong, until I get to the driver side door. that's when I notice ALL of my tires are flat! Biatch cut the valve stems on all 18 tires, and I was so tired and slept so hard I never even noticed.

CrissX: 'CSB' trucking story


It could have been worse; when I was taking one of my criminal law classes, the prof told us a story about his dad (I believe this was either the 70s or early 80s based on prof's age). His dad was taking a 5 min nap with a lit cigarette between his fingers so he'd wake up. Instead he wakes up to a tap on the window, and it's a couple of guys with dark hair and NYC/Italian American accents. They take his wallet and show him his own family pictures, then take those and his license. They tell him hbe's going to surrender his truck's cargo or else they know where he lives and what his family looks like. His dad ended up sitting in the diner nearby and recovered his truck cab; the trailer was found days later a ways away, empty.

So yeah. Getting the tires slashed is bad, but I'd think mugged by the mob (or hijacked, take your pick of definitions) is worse.

Oh, I agree, it can almost always be worse. That was just the worst that happened to me personally. It happened in 05-06, don't remember the exact date. I could tell ya the exact date though if I looked at my resume, had to quit working for that company 3 days later cause they wanted to take the money for the tires out of my pay. I told em to get bent and found another outfit to work for.

From another article: Thomas James Conner, 33, of Bellingham called his trucking company, Anker Trucking, at 2:30 p.m. to report a pair of Asian men with automatic weapons were trying to steal his load of frozen assorted berries.

I guess they were... fruit ninjas?

Why would anyone drink alcohol while they were working?

Too Drunk to Truck, apparently.

WaltFlanagansDog: Ah, drunk logic.


This is like sleep logic:
5 more minutes

I'll just sleep a bit more then wake up, I don't need an alarm clock

I will just get ready quickly instead of taking my time like usual.

I have enough time until the meeting.

And so on, so froth.
