Back in the mid 1980s I got a call that one of my trucks was "Out of Service" at the scale at I 275 and I 74 and they requested that I come in person to pick it up.

When I got there I ask what the problem was and I was told that when the driver got out of the truck he ask the female DOT officer if she was just starting on the rag or if she had been on it for a few days!

If you are running less than 150 miles from home you are not required to have a log book but after his comments they were unwilling to believe he was running local and put him out of service for 10 hours.

I put him in my pickup and sent him home and I got in the truck and finished his route for the day.

I also let him know he had just had strike 1 and 2 and the next time I heard something like this from him he would be fired on the spot!

About 2 weeks later he turned the truck on its side going around a curve and slid it up in a front yard - - - some guys don't deserve a break!

(at W-O-C)
It's not like he asked her where her apron was or anything, c'mon.



I don't like seatbelt laws; i think people should be able to make that decision for themselves. If they choose poorly for their particular wreck, then they might not get further in the gene pool, reducing risk to the next generation. If we didn't protect people from their mistakes, i have to think we would eventually have a lot fewer mistakes, though possibly due to our own extinction.

I started wearing my seat belt regularly to hold my arse in place on the leather seats in the rustang i had for two months. My exploder seats where even slicker, so i kept wearing the belts for the seven years that POS annoyed me. Now, it is just a habit.

Although I DO believe seatbelts save lives,, I also completely agree that it shouldn't be a Law.

No doubt that most times, the seatbelt is the safe choice. Cute lil girl in my senior class got decapitated within days of graduation, T-tops + no seatbelt + driver may have been drinking was hauling arse.

I saw some teens riding in the bed of a pickup the other day; i did it all the time as a kid but not today for similar reasons. I remember in high school i saw this girl i knew who had just ruined a great set of legs with a pickup bed ejection, damn shame, and she knew it.

I envy you guys who get to see the 22's. When I lived in StL, we saw F15's ALL the time. Where I live now, it's F16's. Never F22's.

I work near the airport, and the F16 drivers, when they are flying low, we will wave like crazy at them and give them the "hammer down" motion and about every third time or so they'll blast the gas for a second or two. VERY cool.

I agree with winds on this, I treat other people respectfully, I expect that in return.

There has only been one time that I've been upset enough about something someone said to say something about it and it was a lot worse than that...
