Red face WTF Sight…

I have now officially seen everything on the highway!!!

On the way home yesterday I saw this (sorry, no photo as I was on the interstate headed west and “it” was on the access road headed east) "assembly".

But here’s basically what it was.

Take a rollback like this:

Install a large semi tractor like this on the back of it:
http://www.jbleetrans.com/images/tru...%20TRACTOR.jpg

And when I say “on”, I mean half on, HALF OFF!!! The rear wheels were either just flopping in the wind, or there was some kind of lift under them. But the front tires were on the roll back bed, and the rear tires were sticking off the back end. It looked like the tractor was sitting on the front tires and the frame.

I ain’t done yet!!!

ATTACHED TO THE TRACTOR WAS A FULL SIZE TRAILER!!!!

So basically this setup http://www.kenstrailersandtires.com/images/truck.jpg with the tractor partially pulled onto a roll back!!!

WTF!!! Do ya think the rollback was overloaded!?!?!?!

Oh well, I guess you gotta do what you gotta do…. And at least they weren’t on the interstate… Just poking along on the access road.

Code:
if (dailyDriven.Contains(TooMuchCoffee()))
     dailyDrive.Remove(Coffee());
else
    dailyDrive.Needs(LessCrack());
you seem a little ...high strung sir. Perhaps this might help?

Code:
while (dailyDriven.Find(LastTimeLaid()) == null))
{
    FindStripper();
}

Still ain't used to Alabama huh?





Sometimes, we just need to remember what the rules of life really are:
You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

I've seen a lot of "things" on the highways that make me shake my head, but nothing like that!!

Sounds like a semi tow truck. See those around here a lot. They can tow the entire trailer. Is that not what it was?

This has tool storage, some dont.

This dumbass was going up the WV Turnpike through the mountains, speed limit was 60mph and he was doing at least 75. It was a double trailered truck and the back trailer was sliding all over the road into the other lanes, he damn near ran 5 cars off the road.
