Sinking feeling

23 Oct

I once had a spotter pulling my trailer out of a door just as I was getting there to pick it up. Someone on the site had poured a bit of tarmac patch about three quarters of a meter deep and 3 meters wide nearby. Well the spotter must have not seen this and pulled out and ended up sinking about half a meter into the ground below the concrete. They had to call a wrecker to come pull it out of the ground.

Easter Turkey

22 Oct

Easter Sunday 2003- my husband and I were driving in Mississippi and he went in the back to sleep. He knew we’d be on the interstate and I’d be okay even though I only had 5-6 months experience. About 30 minutes after he gets in the back he hears this massive CRACK.  When I was driving along, minding my own business, a turkey comes out of nowhere on my passenger side, flies over the hood and smacks dead in the centre of the windshield and sticks his tongue out at me before dropping dead below the view of the windshield. He bused both sides of the windshield and even managed to stop the clock inside the truck as well as blow out a small light. We called the company and they didn’t even believe us! We had to take pictures to prove it. Worst of all my husband is the one that had to get the turkey off the hood.  It wasn’t pretty.

Cows on the motorway

19 Oct

One time a truck hauling cattle in front of me had to stop because their trailer brakes caught on fire. The truck’s driver let all the cattle out on the motor way while they tried to put out the fire. Cows were all over the place! Took them 3 hours to coral up all the cows- they were all around my truck. Made me crave a nice steak  🙂
