Okay, sorry it's been so long in writing. I changed to a different host...not that there was anything wrong with my old one (nata2.org). But, I just wanted to try something different.
So a lot has happened since I last wrote. I helped one of my co-workers get some lumber from Lowe's last week and we came out with his purchases. A guy was standing near my truck and came over to help us load the plywood into my truck. After we got done he asked who's truck it was and I said it was mine. I thought he was going to compliment me on my truck or something like it. But that wasn't to be. I said, "I have something to show you in the front of my truck." Well, turns out he back into the front of it with his truck. His truck had a topper on it so he couldn't see what was in back of him very well. We exchanged insurance and phone numbers and went on our ways. I called my agent and he said to call the other guy's agent so I did. The owner of the other truck had already called in the claim and all I had to do was find a "Service First" location that would accommodate the paper work. So, today I got my truck fixed and it didn't cost me anything (would have costed $840). I'm very glad that the guy stuck around to tell me about him hitting my truck. You don't find honest people like that everyday.
Ahhh, but you think that's the rest of the story. hehe. Well, we put all the plywood in the truck and had it tie strapped in. I decided it would be better to not go on the interstate so we went home to Dave's house by way of 100th street. Well, at the Hickman and 100th street intersection the light changed and all of a sudden...slloooobaaammmthuud...and the wood was in the middle of the road with cars backed up and we had to load the wood back up in the middle of the day on that intersection. It could have been worse. No one was injured out of both mishaps. So, I'm happy things turned out they way they did, even though my truck got a little hurt outta the deal.
so, that was a pretty good sound effect for the wood falling out of the truck...i wonder if thats what it really sounded like though
Yeah, the wood falling out of the truck sounded pretty much like that. Just ask Dave.
WOW!!! After a hectic weekend like that I think you and Super Dave deserve to relax at a place where "real men go to get wood"--the real Lumberyard!!! (I wouldn't bring any tie-straps this time)
After some careful examinations into this case I seemed to have discovered the real reason your truck received a boo-boo. After a week's worth of HARD work you deceided to do a little "booz cruzing". Having consumed large amounts of mixed cocktails you swerved to avoid what you thought was a turtel in the middle of the road and hit a telephone booth. Man did you feel like a dumba$$, so you blamed it all on the elderly crashing into you while parked at a lumber store.....likely story!!
You're quite wise Sherlock as that's really what happened. hah.
